Hi there. Today I'm sharing some cute cards I created with the awesome new colors & embellishments of the Fundamentals range. My daughter is turning 6 in a few months which means I better get her birthday invitations underway.

Also check out my 'Congratulations' card tutorial.  So easy to make and can be used for pretty much any celebratory occassion.

But first, here's a glimpse of my daughter's fun & colorful invitations: 6th Birthday Party Invitations Christine Santos

Fundamentals Products: Cardstock (Candy Red, Sky, Buttercup, Shamrock, Rose, Bubblegum, White, Serenity Blue); Mini Pegs & Embossed Tags (Gelato, Spring, Vintage); Gelato Butterflies


I've used my nesting circle dies to create these adorable little girl's invitations. You can get 2 circle card bases from 1 Fundamentals DL Cardstock. To add some texture, I've embossed the top circle layer with a heart embossing folder. Hearts, butterflies, circles & pretty colors...perfect for a fun little girl's card.


I wanted to show off how beautifully the new Fundamentals Cardstock colors mix & match together, & how easy they are to create with. Pair them with the new Embossed Tags, Mini Clothespins & Butterflies to complete the look.

Next up is a Wedding Anniversary card, & we're going to the other end of the color spectrum.

Congratulations Card Christine Santos

Fundamentals Products: Silver Square Cardstock; White Embossed Tags; Silver Butterflies; Mini Sentiments Sticker

Bella Products: White Fabric Trim; Silver Bella Bling & Fabric Floral

I've also made a quick & easy step by step tutorial for this Wedding Anniversary silver card:

  1. Die cut the upper half of the Silver Fundamentals Square Cardstock with a swirl die. Die cut only the front of the card.
  2. Adhere the die cut swirl, offset from the swirl pattern on the card.
  3. Remove half of the bling from the Bella Silver Fabric Floral & adhere this on the left side of the card, layering it among the die cut swirls.
  4. Cut a White Fundamentals Embossed Scallop Tag into a smaller piece, & then adhere a Mini Sentiment Sticker on top. Adhere this on top of the silver fabric flower.
  5. Trim a small piece off a White Bella Fabric Trim & adhere this under the sentiment.
  6. Finish it off by adhering some layered Fundamentals Silver Butterflies, fluttering around the flower swirls.

Thanks for dropping by & I hope you enjoyed my post today. Check out the new Fundamentals range here.  There's a fabulous range of beautiful colors to choose from for any occasion. Cheers!
