Birthday balloons keep on being blown

Ok I seem to have gone a little balloon crazy.  Almost every birthday card I've made lately seems to have been using the Balloon Celebration set.  Not that that's a bad thing - but maybe I'll try and make this my last balloon card for a little while.

I was making this card in a rush so it's pretty simple.  One layer of whisper white card on which I stamped and embossed some tempting turquoise and gold balloons, with Watermelon Wonder string and bows.  I didn't even glue the layer down.  I just used some gold and white washi tape and ta-da - a quick and easy birthday card.

Not sure this is the most creative card I've made lately - but sometimes you just need to get it done.  And it's still a hand made gift so I'm happy.

Birthday balloons

Tis the season for birthdays.  I don't know about you but this time of the year seems to be very heavy on birthdays and I never have enough time to custom make cards on the day.  Luckily I had some time to make a few recently.  It's great to have a tin of cards to grab and go for a busy season.

This card I went with a pretty simple birthday balloon vibe.  Lots of colour, lots of layers and lots of dimensionals used.  

I'm really getting into matching envelopes with my cards lately.  It only takes a few minutes more to do, but it really steps up the wow factor significantly.  What can I say - I like to impress people with my talent (LOL - my ability to slightly tweak cards already made in the catalogue more likely... don't tell!).

Anyway give it ago.  Throw a few matching stamped images on the envelope next time you're crafting and see how impressed everyone is.  Trust me - it will go down a treat.
