Birthday Balloons - Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons

   My local stampers requested some more class projects for guys so I designed this birthday card with a great color combo for guys with a little bit of gold thrown in for good measure.  We had fun making this on at my last class.

  We've used Coastal Cabana, Azure Afternoon, Starry Sky and Lemon Lime Twist for this one.  And the Beautiful Balloons set is a great set to use for color combos with a lot of choices...I don't think you can have too many balloons right?

  For this one we started with a Coastal Cabana base, then stamp the Azure Afternoon panel with the confetti stamp in the same color of ink then cut out the large balloon using the Beautiful Balloons dies (you can do the opposite too, either way you get the same result!).  The opening of the balloon is covered from the back with a piece of Gold Celebrations Specialty paper which is a gold printed acetate and comes with 3 different patterns in 12x12 size.  If you flip it over the pattern shows as silver.  The balloon string is then stamped in Starry Sky.  A 1/4" strip of More Dazzle specialty paper is glued to the edge for some celebration pop! The whole panel is adhered with dimensionals.

  The smaller balloons and the tassel are stamped and die cut.  They are added to the side of the large balloon and the small one is popped on dimensionals. The tag is die cut and then stamped with the birthday greeting and some Azure Afternoon sheer ribbon is tied through the hole.  It's adhered with a few more dimensionals.  Gold sequins finish up the embellishments.

  I made a few extras of this design for my card stash because I loved it so much.  You can't have too many guy cards in reserve!

  All the items used to make this card can be purchased in my ONLINE STORE.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
