Balloons are always a great image to use when creating a hand stamped Birthday Card. I don't know anyone who doesn't appreciate a hand stamped card.
Often times I get so busy making cards I forget to send them. That was one of my new years resolutions but I am still not doing as well as I like to getting cards in the mail. I use to say I only needed on birthday stamp and that was Happy Belated LOL.
- The Lemon Lime Twist patterned paper (2" x 5 1/2") is from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper. I attached it to my Pool Party card base (5 1/2" x 8 1/2").
- I stamped the balloons and punched them out with the making Balloon Bouquet Punch. I love when stamp sets have matching punches or dies. Makes it easy peasy and no fussy cutting which I am not the best at.
- I stamped the two outline balloons, one on Mellon Mambo and the other on Bermuda Bay cardstock. The Hooray Balloon I stamped on Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock.
- All three balloon strings are stamped in Tuxedo Black onto Whisper White Cardstock (2 3/4" x 4"). I matted the Whisper White cardstock with a piece of Basic Black Cardstock. With dimenisonals I attached the Basic Black to the cardfront.
I like to use the Memento Tuxedo Black with my photopolmer, just personal preference as I feel it cleans off the stamp better.
For a little extra wow factor I added a banner of Silver Glimmer Paper (1/2" x 3").
Stamped the label frame in Tuxedo Black Ink on a scrap piece of Powder Pink cardstock and stamped "happy birthday" in the center and punched out with the coordinating Classic Label Punch and attached to the glimmer paper with dimensionals.
