Happy Friday, Everyone! I am so thrilled to be sharing my first card as part of the Design Team. My card features the new Floral Balloon Layer Set and the Birthday Wishes Sugar Script Die set.

I started by cutting a panel of white card stock with the String Art Frame die, which is one of my favorite cover dies. I adhered that to a piece of light gray card stock and then popped that up on a white card base with some foam tape. My card base measures 4.75″ x 6″, which provides a nice 1/4″ margin around the card.

Next, I cut a piece of white card stock with the Floral Balloon Layer A die. I saved several of the little flowers that were cut out and put those aside. I adhered the white balloon onto a pink solid balloon that I made with the Floral Balloon Layer C die. I adhered the layered balloon to my card panel, right over the circular opening of the String Art Frame. I tied a small bow with some black twine and glued that to the bottom of the balloon. I also cut a string of the twine and glued one end of it right under the bow, letting the bottom hang down until I could secure it under my sentiment.

I used the Birthday Wishes Sugar Script Die set to cut the word “birthday” from glossy black card stock. In order to create dimension, I adhered that onto another one that I had cut out of thick white card stock. I also cut two layers of white card stock with the shadow die, adhered those together, and then adhered the black birthday layer on top. I carefully situated my balloon string before adhering the layered birthday sentiment onto the bottom of the card. I heat embossed the smaller sentiment, which comes from the Blooming Spring Clear Stamp Set. To finish my card, I added small black gemstones to the centers of all the flowers on the balloon. I also took three of those little white flowers that I had set aside, scattered them around the balloon and added black gemstones to the centers.

Thank you so much for stopping by to join us. I hope this card put a smile on your face. Wishing you all a crafty day!
