Balloon Birthday Card

When I think of making a birthday card, I always think first of balloons as the image that would make the perfect card. The Balloon Celebration stamp set from Stampin’ Up! works well for stamping homemade birthday cards.

The Balloon Celebration stamp set has several sizes and types of balloons and strings and bows too.  Plus it has lots of useful sayings, like the “Happy Birthday” on this card.  And you can easily punch out the two sizes of balloons using the Balloon Bouquet Punch.

I got this Birthday Card, for my birthday this month, from a staff member at Stampin’ Up!  I love that the company I work with sends cards!   And as much as I enjoy getting Facebook and email greetings, there really is nothing like a greeting card in the mail.  It makes that boring pile of bills and junk mail turn exciting!  And when the card is handmade too, well that just makes you feel EXTRA special.   And I know when I make and send a card, I feel happy knowing that I will be making someone else feel special.  As card makers, I know you understand what I’m talking about.  It is as good as to make a card and as it is to receive a homemade card.

Also on this card, are the new sequins.  They just add a few sparkle to the card.  And I love this little Washi Tape border along the edge of the card and how it ties together the saying stamped in black ink.  All the supplies used on this card are listed below.  Just click on any image to see the supplies in my Online Store.
