Huge balloons, flying high in the sky, wishing the recipient a Happy Birthday. “Happy Birthday ” was created with Wanted To Say Dies, Thick Basic White Cardstock for the words, and backed with Basic White Cardstock that was colored with a Blending Brush and Misty Moonlight Ink. The backing allows the words to be raised on Dimensionals.

Balloons in the sky


This design idea began with the blue balloons in the corners, inspired by a card sketch. To create the balloons, I made a stencil with the largest, Stylish Shapes circle die, and used a Blending Brush to smooth on Misty Moonlight Ink.

The card base is Boho Blue Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, layered with Basic White Cardstock, 4 ” X 5 1/4″.


Next, I stamped balloons, from the Beautiful Balloons Stamp Set, in Parakeet Party Ink. Then, I added Clouds, using Waves Dies to cut Thick Basic White Cardstock, attached with Dimensionals.


To complete the sky, I stamped two birds, from the Waves Of Inspiration Stamp Set, in Night Of Navy Ink. The final touch was three, 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.
