You all know how I love Birthday cards and make lots of them because I send out so many each month (gotta love a big family)!!! This card is perfect because it is gender neutral. I started off with a Crushed Curry card base and added some Bermuda Bay measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Then with a piece of Whisper White (3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″) and stamped the 3 Balloons from the Balloon Bash Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog! I used Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, and Tangelo Twist for those balloons. For the Bermuda Bay balloon, I stamped it again on a piece of scrap white and cut it out and popped it onto my card with a Stampin’ Dimensional! I love that extra little POP! Next I added a little strip of Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper along the bottom! You will adhere this first and then ink up the #HappyBirthday in Night of Navy and stamped that below the Designer Series Paper. Then you will ink up the entire image again and stamp it on a piece of scrap white and cut it out (minus the #HappyBirthday). There was no way I could cut out that bottom portion and make it look clean so that is why I stamped that directly onto my card!!! I added the HB to my card front with some Stampin’ Dimensionals and then you are ready to add this to the front of your card! You are all done. You could do this in so many different colors and styles. Do you have a scrap piece of Designer Series Paper laying around??? Of course you do! Grab that piece and the coordinating colors for your balloons and greeting! Super fabulous!!!
