Hello friends! Today I have a quick birthday card idea to share. It’s my son’s birthday in a few days, and he’s always asking for money. I made this slim card that’s perfect to slip some cash into.
I stamped and colored the birthday cake and stars from the Make a Wish stamp set, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next I used the Birthday Balloons Stamp Set to stamp 5 2- layered balloons, and die-cut the balloons with the coordinating die. With a large dauber, I blended Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink onto white card front panel cut to 8.25 x 4. I then figured out where I wanted the balloons and cake to be on the card front. I used a T-ruler and multiliner pen to draw balloon strings down to the cake.
I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Birthday Balloons Stamp Set with Verasmark embossing ink, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then attached the card front to craft foam. I used double-sided adhesive to add the card front to an 8.5 x 4.25 card base. I added the balloons and cake with thin foam adhesive squares. My final touch was gluing stars around the balloons.
I know my son is going to love this card, and the money inside! That’s all I have for today, thanks for stopping by!
