Birthday Balloons
By Jeanne Jachna

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you’re having a great day!  Today I’m sharing a birthday card made with the Party Balloon die set! This set includes six nested dies – detached and deburred on a magnetic sheet.   The balloons each have a beautiful stitched detail along the outer edges and come in a variety of sizes.

Balloons always make me smile and they’re perfect for any celebration!  I cut mine in a rainbow of colors!  Did you notice that where they overlap the colors change?  This is an easy technique to try!  I started by cutting balloons in the three primary colors (red, yellow, and blue).  Where they overlap I will cut the dies in secondary colors.

I layered a yellow balloon over a large red balloon.    Where they overlap I want the color to be orange so I  cut a second smaller balloon from orange.

Lay the orange balloon over the yellow balloon.  Next place the die for the red balloon over the red balloon and secure the die with tape over the orange balloon.  Pick up the die and die cut the orange balloon.

Adhere the orange die cut piece over the yellow balloon.

I topped the balloons with a simple sentiment – the Calligraphy Pop Happy Birthday Die.  I cut the sentiment from green card stock so it would stand out from the colorful balloons.

I die cut the bit of purple balloon the same way I did the orange.

The finishing touch was a sprinkle of gold sequins in different shapes and sizes.  If you love sequins you need to check out all the new mixes in the store!  You can see them all here!

All the bright colors and sparkly sequins are a party inside an envelope!

Finished Size 4.25 x  5.5″
