Birthday Balloons

 

My silhouette girl is stamped in Night of Navy Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and fussy cut with Paper Snips. I wish this stamp set had dies for cutting, but she was fairly easy to cut by hand. Next, I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut the three balloons from Noble Peacock Foil. The colors are: Pretty Peacock, Old Olive and Blueberry Bushel. It was difficult to photograph, but you can see the shine in the first photo. 

 

For the background, I cut Whisper White Cardstock with a Rectangles Stitched Die, and embossed it with Eyelet Lace. Before embossing, I stamped “Happy Birthday,” from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, in Bermuda Bay Ink. If you’re wondering, you are seeing the debossed side. This was layered on Bermuda Bay 6X6 Designer Series Paper, atop a Thick Whisper White Cardbase. 

 

Since the balloons were “popped” on Dimensionals, my Silhouette Scenes girl was given Dimensionals also.

Woven Threads Sequins in turquoise, and Iridescent Sequins in green, were tossed on for added sparkle.

 

My inspiration for today’s card was the “balloons” theme at Global Design Project.
