Balloon Birthday Card

I made this Balloon Birthday card for a swap.  I was in the mood for blues after all the reds and pinks I have been using the last few months.  This card is pretty quick and easy and can even be given to men!  Just pick the Birthday boy or girl’s favorite color(s).

1.  Cut your Pool Party card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″  Score and Fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Prepare your pieces:
~Stamp the Balloon filler design you want on the Tempting Turquoise card stock in Pacific Point ink.  Cut out with your Big Shot and the Balloon Framelit.
~Stamp your words in Pacific Point ink on Pool Party card stock.  Cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelit.  Color the edge with the Pacific Point Marker.
~Stamp your small balloons on Tempting Turquoise card stock with Pacific Point ink.  Punch out with small Balloon Punch.  Add to your words with Dimensionals.
3.  Cut your Pool Party card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Lay your large Balloon and your words layer in the position you want.  Now cut out a large Balloon with the Balloon Framelit so it is off to one side as shown.
4.  Assemble:
~Your large Balloon will use Dimensionals to attach to the card front.  The part that hangs over the Balloon cut out will need a stack of two Dimensionals so it will be flat inside of sinking into the Balloon cut out.
~Attach your word layer with Dimensionals.
5.  Stamp small balloons on your envelope so the receiver will get excited just seeing the envelope!

1.  Cut your Bermuda Bay card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.

3.  Cut two balloons from the confetti print with gold flecks using your Big Shot and the Balloon Framelit.  Now cut a balloon from Island Indigo card stock using the Balloon Framelit.  Sponge around all the balloons with Bermuda Bay ink.
4.  Choose the Happy and Birthday stamps and place them on the same clear block.  Make sure they fit inside your Island Indigo Balloon.  Stamp in Island Indigo ink.
5.  Put Dimensionals on the back of all three balloons.  Double stack the Dimensionals on the top and bottom of the Island Indigo balloon leaving just one Dimensional on each side.  This will make the center balloon stand out some from the other balloons.
6.  Put a Glue Dot on the string end of each balloon and place some Gold Baker’s Twine on the Glue Dot.  Now attach your balloons to the card front leaving the ends of the Baker’s Twine loose for now.
7.  Trim the ends of the Baker’s Twine now.  These ended at the bottom of the diagonal striped layer.  Gently roll a Glue Dot and attach to the bottom end of each piece of Baker’s Twine and attach to the bottom of your card.
8.  Your birthday card is now ready to give to that special someone.
