My friend Donnis is celebrating her birthday today so I thought I would share another birthday card from my last Card Buffet.
Once again you can see how Basic Black coordinates with pretty much any color. It makes everything pop! On this card I paired it with the beautiful Bermuda Bay.
I used the Balloon Celebration stamp set on this card. Don’t you love the balloon string made of words?
Here’s a little tip I found when stamping the balloon with the confetti inside….stamp the confetti first, then stamp the balloon. It seems backwards but it’s easier because the confetti is stamped full strength while you stamp off the balloon before stamping it so it’s a bit easier to see through the photopolymer stamp.
At first I had the balloon focal point on a plain card front. Then it came to me to use the Softly Falling Embossing Folder upside down so it mimics the confetti in the balloon! Clever! 🙂
I’ve already wished Donnis a happy birthday on Facebook. Now I just need to remember to bring her a card at church choir tonight! Have a great day! Take care and Happy Stamping!
