I’ve had 2 very special birthdays to celebrate recently, a dear friend, and my son’s Godmother. I made a card each for them. I didn’t realize how many pieces I had touched until our sweet little cousin asked me just how I made this. So here goes. I cut my cardstock (Stampin’ UP! thick cardstock) to an A2 size, finished size 5 1/2 X 4 1/4. Then I cut a piece of Soft Sky card stock (SU) to 5 1/8 X 4 1/8. I used SU’s Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and Balloon Bouquet Punch. I then stamped clouds in Craft White (SU) onto the blue cardstock and I used a regular blow dryer to set the color. I acutally left this overnight to make sure it was fully dried, but I’m sure I went overboard with that. I cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock (SU) and I used a pair of scrapbook scissors to cut the bottom of the vellum. I then went over the area of the vellum cardstock with an embossing buddy (SU) where I wanted to stamp Happy Birthday and used Versamark to stamp Happy Birthday onto the vellum. I sprinkled SU’s Gold Fine Embossing Powder over the veramark and heat set it with a heat tool (ADULT SUPERVISION REQUIRED) I attached the vellum cardstock aligning it to the top of the soft sky CS with tombow adhesive. I cut pretty banners out of the silver glitter paper, and used retired Strawberry Slush paper and stamped little stars all over the Strawberry Slush banner, and attached both with adhesive. I then stamped the ballons in soft sky and Blushing Bride, and punched those out and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise them (pop-dots) I used pretty twine under the ballons and tied at the ends. Thanks for looking!
