A little alliteration with your morning coffee, LOL! Today’s Bright Balloon Bouquet Birthday Bash card was a HUGE hit at the First Wednesday Card Club Meeting this month! The bright balloon bouquet and primary colors got big nods and “When are we making this card??” queries as well.
The card class with this card and other multi layered cards will be held on Saturday, March 17th at 10am! Please contact me to sign up. Seating is limited to 15.
Making use of Designer Series Paper Stacks, LOL and a little poppy parade card stock too. I really don’t want to see that color drop from the line up, but will probably find a new favorite when the new in colors are announced. (May just have to buy an extra pack to squirrel away just in case too!)
This tiny cupcake image is from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set, and stamped with poppy parade ink.. who would have thunk? A little faux stitching was added to the Rich Razzleberry card stock circle using a white gel pen… no piercing this time and I just eyeballed it again…. LOL, it’s a lot easier to stay even when you have a smaller circle to work with!!
The “Happy Birthday” banner was also stamped with poppy parade ink. The cute curly cue sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set found in the idea book & catalog on page 168.
Of course the primary focal point of the card is a wonderful wispy balloon bouquet. Several strands of linen thread were tied and attached behind the balloon bouquet to represent balloon strings. Just a tiny little comma made with a white gel pen makes a big difference on a balloon, don’t you think?
Three different colored brads add to the bold, bright fun theme of today’s balloon bouquet card. LOL, I was fairly certain my club members would clamor to make this card and new that I didn’t have enough brads if they were all one color, so opted to mix it up a bit. I think it works well given the primary color theme of the card… what do you think?
- I just heard that this week there will be a PRIZE drawing for one special participant in the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge… be sure to add your card using the linky tool at the bottom of this week’s SQSC post!!
