Balloon Celebration Birthday

Earlier this year I got a lovely birthday card from my sister. I decided to copy it with current paper. You can see her card below. My CASEd version features Night of Navy and Whisper White Card Stock , a clean crisp color combo.

Balloons make me happy so they are a go to element for birthday cards!  I think this card would be great for men as well, though I might leave off the pearls for a guy.

I used the fabulous Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper and the larger balloon from the Balloon Bouquet Punch, mounting them with Dimensionals.

The strings and greeting are from the photopolymer set Balloon Celebration and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

To give the balloons some dimension I used a stylus on the back side of the punches to give them a convex shape.  I also added a punched vellum balloon add a layer to one balloon.  I added some Silver Metallic Thread and Pearl Basic Jewels

This is a great way to use those scrap strips of Designer Series Paper.

Tip:  When punching vellum layer the vellum over printer paper and punch through both -- you'll get a cleaner punched shape.

Here is my inspiration. In this card the pink balloon is stamped and a vellum balloon is added over the top.

Thanks for looking!
