This is such a fun and cheery looking card. I saw it on Klompen Stampers and I just had to copy it. The inside is suppose to be a pop-up birthday greeting but I didn't add it to this card. I was more impressed with the festive front of this card. I just love how colorful it is. It's so cheery looking.
The base of this card is a folded half sheet of Basic Black cardstock. Then a 4" x 5-1/4" layer of Whisper White was added to the top. But before I taped it in place I stamped on it!!!
The first thing I did was to die cut the balloons and punch out the solid balloons so I could glue them together and let them sit to dry. I used Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango cardstock. For the solid backing on the balloons, I used Cucumber Crush, Smoky Slate, and Daffodil Delight.
Next I stamped the balloons onto the Whisper White piece. I used Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Cucumber Crush ink. I also used Daffodil Delight ink for the confetti on the right side of the card. The words were from the same set and stamped using black Memento ink.
Once I was done stamping the balloons, I stamped the words. That way I knew where to add the confetti.
Next I set the die cut balloons in place using Dimensionals. I added a glue dot to the Basic Black cardstock die cut bows on each balloon. (wow, was that ever a run on sentence!). It bordered on rambling!!! LOL Anyway, after the bows were added, I added a piece of trimmed Whisper White cardstock to the inside and that was it.
It's a pretty simple card. Die cuts help a lot to make speedy cards!!! I hope this set makes it to the catalog in June. I really like it!!
