BIRTHDAY CARD DETAILS

To begin, I stamped balloon images in Simon’s Maliblue and Audrey Blue ink on Sea Glass cardstock. Some of the Maliblue balloons were double stamped to make them appear a tiny bit darker. I overlapped many of the images to have the look of a wall of balloons floating in the air.

Using a white pen I added highlights to the balloons to help them look a bit more dimensional. Next, I applied Gold Glitter paste using Simon’s Confetti stencil and lastly stamped a partial sentiment (skipping the “You Rock” part) in black ink.

Once everything was dry I trimmed the panel to 4 x 5 1/4″ and foam mounted it on A2 white card base. Super easy, right?

A few days back I shared a set of Punny Birthday cards featuring same stamp set and a cool background technique using ink pads. Give it a look!
