Purple Glam Birthday Card

Birthday Cards, Cards

Welcome! I took a week off, but I’m back to share a card I created for the Colour Me challenge. The challenge this week is to create a project using purple.


To get my mojo flowing, I created a super easy and quick card. The touches of gold add a nice bit of pizzazz and glam. I used a fuchsia version of this card for a nine year old girl’s birthday last weekend and it was a hit!

As usual, I’ve created a YouTube tutorial to show you how I made this card. You can watch it below, or on YouTube.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure to visit our other designers to get your creative juices flowing–


Until next time,

  1. Julia….I am in love with all your fabulous and fun dots. And paired with the wee bits of gold bling, makes for a very festive birthday card. Just love it!

  2. Hi Julia, just started following your blog. LOVE your designs. I was wondering where you purchase your sequins from and where do you find the no clog tip for the multi matte? I’m hoping to jump start my creative juices today-lately, I just can’t seem to get going!

    1. Hi Jackie! Thanks so much for your kind words!!!

      Most of my sequins come from the dollar store. The best one in my area is Dollar Tree, but I’ve seen them at other bargain stores as well. I have ordered a few sets of 4mm sequins from Simon Says Stamp too since those are harder to find. My nozzle for glue was also ordered from Simon Says Stamp. It was originally intended for quilling, so if you have a paper craft store in your area, they will likely have the nozzles as well. Happy crafting!!

      1. Thanks Julia, I will be on the look out! You are probably the first blogger that I have found that uses Spectrum Noir markers instead of Copics. I am a Spectrum Noir user, so I really appreciate being able to get the same effects as you do with my cards! Thanks again for the info.
