Who doesn’t love ALL THE BALLOONS!!!! You could create this card in any color combination for a boy or girl!!! I used the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog!!! It is lots of fun! You can see more samples here and here!
I started off with a Rich Razzleberry card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and stamped the solid balloon in Rich Razzleberry from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set. I stamped a few times to get those various shades! Some overlap and some fall off the card for that full look! TIP: If you stamp partially off the cardstock, go back to the ink and start again because otherwise your next stamp will be dark on the part that was falling off the cardstock. Does that make sense? I sure hope so! 🙂 I just think that balloons look odd without their tails (string) so I added them in Basic Black. I took a scrap piece of paper to mask some of the balloons and add tails to some of the higher balloons. I adhered this piece to the card front and tied some Gold Ribbon along the left hand side. I tied it around and into a knot. Then I took another piece and tied a knot on either side for a little extra foo foo and texture! For the greeting, I stamped the Happy Birthday onto Gold Foil Paper with Stazon Ink. Be careful not to slide on the foil paper with the stamp….straight up and down! Let it sit for a bit too so it can dry completely. Once it is dry, you can punch it out with the Washi Label Punch and adhere it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Love it!
What color of balloons would you stamp? Let me know in the comments below! I’m thinking Cucumber Crush and Pacific Point would be fabulous as well!!!
