Sugar Shoppe: Bright Birthday Card Trio by Wendy

Hello Doodlebug friends! It's Wendy Sue here today and I am so excited to share my latest card creations with you.  I am loving the pinks, teals, and oranges in the new Sugar Shoppe collection - they are soft and pretty, yet bold enough to really make a statement!  I used products from this new line to create a trio of card and envelope sets.
If you are a card-maker and you aren't using Doodlebug's "create-a-card" card bases and envelopes, you really should rethink it.  Seriously - the bases come in super cute shapes and sizes, with coordinating envelopes and all in fun doodlebug colors.  For reals - you need to check them out! 
I used card bases and envelopes from the A2 polka-dot assortment pack.  The three colors I chose to work with coordinate beautifully with the Sugar Shoppe products.  Here's the first card I created:
I like embellishing the coordinating envelopes as well - I used one of the fun pixies, along with washi tape, stickers, patterned paper, and doodle twine on this one.

And here's card #2.  I turned this one on it's side and dangled a few of the pixie flags from doodle twine on the side.  I removed the bottom portion of the flag since I wasn't adding it to a pixie stick.

For the envelope, I simply used one of the cards from the "simply put" album insert pad.

And finally, this cute orange card.  I cut lots of strips from the 6x6 pad and placed them skeewhompus on the front of the card.  I added tabs from the border sticker sheet, some washi tape, and some mini tag stickers too.  I added the tag stickers with foam adhesive for just a bit of dimension. 
And for this envelope, I simply cut a piece of patterned paper into a flag shape (I'll add the name of the recipient with letter stickers later) and a cute cupcake sticker!
Creating cards with Doodlebug products is always fun and easy, but when you start with a cute card base, your cards are automatically 99% cuter - guaranteed! ;)
