Hello, friends! I am so happy you stopped by today. I’m here sharing how I made this stenciled and stitched balloon card using Birch Press Design’s Party Balloon dies.

These Party Balloon dies are truly a must-have for creating birthday or celebratory cards. I love their stitched details! To start my card, I die cut my largest balloon and added stenciled details using Poppystamps’s Romantic Blooms stencil and Distress Oxide Inks. I then die cut two smaller balloons and added color with the same shades of Distress Oxide inks, being sure to keep a highlight area for some realism.

To add some more interest to the balloons, I stitched through the stitch holes using gold metallic thread and a simple backstitch. I then adhered some of the same thread to the back of the balloons to create their strings.

To finish the card, I splattered a sky-colored background panel with some white paint. I then cut my “celebrate” sentiment from gold mirror cardstock. I popped up my largest balloon with foam tape and adhered my balloons to the cards, wrapping their strings somewhat loosely around the back of the panel to add to the floating effect. A few sparkly sequins and this card was finished!

I hope you like this simple but pretty celebration card! Links to the products I used are below. Thanks again for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon with another card project!
