Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! I’m back on the Dare 2B Artzy blog as a guest designer this month and it’s my day to share an inspiration project, a fun CAS birthday card using the Birthday Balloons stamp set with coordinating Balloon die that comes with the stamp set. I’m having a blast being back as a guestie for the month of October!

This was probably one of the most fun cards I’ve made in a while. It’s super simple and really packs a big punch! As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been creating more clean and simple cards which have always been a challenge for me. I stamped the balloon cluster, strings and stars on the front of the card base. Can you believe it… yes, this is almost a one-layer card! LOL! I then stamped three individual balloons in different colors on a smaller piece of cardstock and cut each of them with the balloon die.

I colored the balloons  and the stars with a Crystal Clear Sparkle overlay marker which gave them a really pretty shimmer. I finished the front of the card with a few sequins. Yes, I am a sequin freak too, lol! And didn’t this turn out just darling?!

I stamped the sentiment and a few stars on the inside, and layered the panel on green cardstock.
