A new year has begun and that means Birthdays will happen!!! I love sending Birthday Cards because it is the one event that we all partake in!!! I tend to struggle with man card since I love PINK and flowers and bling but this one is perfect!!!
I started with an Emerald Envy card base! Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 3″ and punched the right side corners with the Corner Rounder Punch. I stamped the balloons from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink and Emerald Envy Ink. I stamped the strings of the balloons in Basic Black Ink. I made this card first but since I have made a few more and I like the squiggle string better for this card. It makes the strings not look so straight and blah. I added this piece to a Emerald Envy card base in the middle of card. Then I added a piece of Party Animal Designer Series Paper measuring 1″ x 5-1/2″ along the left hand side of the card. This covers the gap between the edge of the card and the balloon piece! Then I added some Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon around the card and tied into a knot. The ribbon goes to the inside of the card! For the greeting, I stamped it in Pacific Point Ink onto Whisper White. I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. Then I punched out another one in Pacific Point and cut it in half. I put half behind the upper part of the greeting and the other hand on the lower portion of the greeting. Check out the video on how to do it here! I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Love it!!!
