Let's Bring Birthdays Back

Shannon West from Stampin' Up! has started a campaign to bring birthdays back (read more here) and because of a rave response, you can now purchase this fun stamp set, too! (think back of cards, insides, and envelopes too!)  

To help you bring birthdays back, I am sharing a fun birthday card idea, along with instructions and a supply list.

* Whisper White 4” x 4” for inside greeting
* Whisper White Baker’s Twine, 16”
1. Punch out two large balloons and one small balloon.
2. Stamp the balloon texture image on one large and one small with VersaMark ink.
3. Stamp the inside greeting on the other large balloon.
4. Place the 1” x 4” piece of cardstock at bottom or the top of the Confetti Embossing folder so that you avoid the oval part in the center.
5. Lay a piece of Baker’s Twine on the back of the balloon near the bottom of the balloon. Secure with a dimensional near the very bottom of the balloon so that the string does not swing out of the side of the balloon.
6. Assemble card as shown in the photo.
These are the products used to create the above cards. If you'd like to make them and need any of these supplies, just click on an image and you will be taken to my online store.
