What a Whoooot! Kid's birthday card
bird punch, so it looks like he's holding the collection of balloons. This card was inspired by a number of different cards I've seen made with this, (new to me) stamp set -- "Party This Way" -- yet ANOTHER free stamp set you can get right now during Sale-a-bration!
I stamped the balloons in Real Red and Pacific Point ink on Whisper White card stock and cut them out, popped them up on dimensionals, and added some Cherry Cobbler bakers twine for the strings. The clouds are made with the cupcake punch, (a lovely punch that I sadly haven't used very much -- don't know why!) and I added a little yellow sun in the upper right corner using the 1 3/8" circle punch. The red "rick rack" along the bottom is made using the Tasteful Trims XL die. This die is a bit on the spendy side, but I really do use it a lot. It makes 12" die cuts, so it's perfect for scrap booking as well as card making. And doesn't it add such a cute touch to the bottom of this card?! (Here's another card using this die: http://www.stampedwithflair.blogspot.com/2011/10/sweet-stiched-stockings.html) The Bashful Blue card base is embossed with the Snow burst embossing folder -- such a great embossing folder for many, many applications. Finally, I made his little party hat using the Petite Pennants Builder punch -- which coordinates with the Party This Way stamp set, as well.
This little cutie pie card is another project we will be making at my upcoming card buffet. Hope you can come!
