Happy First Day of June fellow crafters. We are looking forward to school being out, summer adventures, and lots of extra crafting time. We love how Jamie used our Party Balloons stamp for this fun birthday card. We don't know about you, but we are ALWAYS in need of a good birthday card. Is your stash running low? Follow along with Jamie below and make a few of these fun DIY cards to keep in inventory! 

Rubbernecker Stamps has this Party Balloons stamp that has the string from one of the balloons spelling out happy birthday in a really pretty font. This is a go-to for any quick and easy birthday cards I have in mind. Perfect for beginner! 

Here’s how my card was made-
  • Stamp Party Balloons on watercolor paper with Onyx Black VersaFine ink, emboss with clear embossing powder and color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  
  • Use the matching Party Balloons Die Cut to cut out the balloons and set aside.

  • Use the Clouds Stencil to stencil clouds on a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ white cardstock panel using the grey inks from the Color Fuse Set #12.
  • Die-cut this panel using the Nested Rectangle Dies and glue this to a slightly larger pink panel then to a slightly larger white panel and finally glue this to a grey top folded card.

  • Pop up the balloons using 3D Foam Squares, then glue green and white ribbon towards the bottom of the card.
  • Take some of the same ribbon, fold it in half, diagonally trim the ends and push a cream color small brad through the ribbon and glue to the right top of the card.
