Today I paired the new Number of Years stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog with the Celebrate Today stamp set and the Cherry on Top Designer Paper Stack from the Annual Catalog.
For the card base I used the Whisper White Thick cardstock (4 1/4" x 11"), this is a new product in this years annual catalog and is the same weight as the colored cardstock. It makes a great sturdy base for your card.
I layered Watermelon Wonder cardstock (4" x 5 1/4") and stamped Happy Birthday in Basic Black on the bottom.
The balloon patterned paper (3 1/4" x 4") is layered on a Pool Party Mat (3 1/2" x 4 1/4").
I tied the super duper 3/8" Pool Party Glimmer Ribbon (also from the Occasions catalog) around the Pool Party cardstock about 3/4" from the top. This is a very soft easy to tie ribbon.
The balloon is stamped in Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink and cut out with the Coordinating Balloon Framelits. The #4 was stamped in Pool Party Classic Ink and cut out with it's coordinating Number Framelits and adhered to the balloon with a dimensional.
The finished it all off with a Linen Thread balloon string.
Think of all the special people you can customize a Birthday or Anniversary card for using these numbers.
