Birthday Balloons
by JJ Bolton


Just stopping in today with a fun birthday card to share!  May is a crazy month of birthdays for our family.  My twin sons, husband, father, sister, and brother-in-law all have birthdays this WEEK!  So this card is very appropriate:)  To make this card, I started off by die cutting the stitched square.  Then I die cut the "birthday wishes" into the square and inlaid it with a metallic gold version.  Just for fun, the square is offset on the card base.  


Then I die cut a variety of balloons in different colored vellum and arranged them around and behind the square.  Vellum can be tricky to work with, so I try to hide the glue behind card stock pieces or where the vellum overlaps.      

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Fun n Happy card !

Hi JJ, This is a very lovely card, I love the colours of the balloons, and I love how you have got some part of the balloon on the square layer and also underneath the square layer as if they 'carry on', very very effective, and I can't see where your adhesive is at all !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

JJ this is so soft and beautiful with the colored vellum balloons! I love the design! You hid the adhesive very well!

Perfect cheerful birthday card! Love the inlaid sentiment... I HAVE to remember to try that! Happy birthdays to your family!
