Balloon Celebration

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!
