Birthday card duo
Hey guys! I'm here today to share a few just for fun cards I made. As I've probably said a million times, the cards I use the most by far are Birthday and Thanks cards. So I'm always up for adding a few more to my stash of cards. I pulled out the Cake Walk line by October Afternoon and made these two cards.
The first card of them that I made was this one, simple because I was dying to use these adorable balloon dies I ordered by Paper Smooches. There are so many companies with balloon dies, but I chose these for the good price point, and cute sizes. I decided to use the inlaid die cut technique to incorporate some patterned paper stars in the balloons. I used the Puffy Star die, and 2x3 Journaling card die set, both from Lawn Fawn. I used my white gel pen to add a few marks to the balloons, and my Wink of Stella over the inlaid stars, and on the sentiment letter stickers. I was really happy with the way it turned out, I think it's super cute!
Also, it's hard to see, but I also tied a sting around the balloon ends with simple white thread. It looks quite cute in person :)
And then because I had all these supplies pulled out on my desk already I made a second card. I had a scrap of glitter paper on my desk and used that as the base to my card for a little extra fun.
