Balmy Birthday

August 6, 2019

I found a lovely card on Pinterest by Cornelia Janssen which was the inspiration for this card.  I attached Balmy Blue card to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I cut a frame from Whisper White card using the Rectangle Stitched Frames which I embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the clouds from the Above the Clouds stamp set onto Whisper White card using Balmy Blue ink.  I attached the stamped panel to the back of the frame using dimensionals before attaching the whole piece to the card front.  I stamped the large balloon onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched it out using the  Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I stamped the basket image from the Above the Clouds stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card and punched it out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I coloured the image using Balmy Blue and Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped the small balloons from the same stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card, coloured them using the Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends and then cut them out. I attached the two small balloons over the stamped clouds and the large balloon to the left hand side of the card front, partially over the frame using dimensionals.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set onto Whisper White card using Balmy Blue ink and cut it out using one of the circles from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I attached the greeting to a Balmy Blue scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circles Dies and then the card front, partially over the frame using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the cloud image from the Above The Clouds stamp set using Balmy Blue ink.  I stamped the greeting from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set over the clouds using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Thank you so much Cornelia for the inspiration.  I love this card.

Bye for now,

Kris
