Balloon Adventures Stamp Set: Birthday Card

Hello! Today's card is another quick and easy card that features the Balloon Adventure stamp set from Stampin' Up's 2017 Occasions Catalogue. This card comes together quickly for an easy birthday card when you need one!

How To Make This Hand Stamped Birthday Card:

This birthday card starts simply with a base of Whisper White Thick cardstock.

The Watercolor Wash background stamp was inked up with Emerald Envy ink and stamped on the Whisper White Thick base.

The birthday card greeting was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then die cut using the Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Collection dies.

A Watermelon Wonder Stampin Write marker was used to color in the letters in the greeting.

A piece of Emerald Envy cardstock was cut with the scallop oval die from the same Layered Ovals die collection and then cut in half to mount behind the stamped Whisper White oval.

A Delicate White Doily was cut in half and then adhered behind the Emerald Envy scalloped oval. The greeting layers were then adhered to the card front.

I tied a bow with the Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon and then used a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it to the card front just below the birthday greeting.

As a final little touch, I used the Watermelon Wonder Stampin' Write marker to add a few little dots to the card front.
