Neat and Tangled and Papertrey Ink balloon birthday card



Hello everyone and welcome to a very special Photo Inspiration challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. We have reached our 300th Challenge on our 6th birthday and Kylie is kindly sponsoring a prize from Happy Little Stampers


All you have to do is create a birthday card, link it up, and you could be the prize winner. I came up with this card because nothing says happy birthday like a balloon!



1) Take a panel of white card and apply the balloon stencil from Neat and Tangled. Sponge ink through the stencil using Distress Oxide Inks.

2) Add bows to the balloons using the end of a stamp from Papertrey Ink Banner Builders, and the strings from PTI It's a Celebration. I used Versafine Smokey Grey ink for this.




3) Die cut the PTI One Liner Happy die 3 times from white card and ink over one of them using the DO Picked Raspberry ink. Stack the dies together.

4)  Stamp 'birthday' from PTI Birthday Bash Sentiments in the lower corner and glue the happy die above it.

5) Stamp the stars from PTI Scene it: Celebration along the balloon strings.



6) Finish off by cutting 2 white rectangles and ink the edges with the Distress Oxide inks before stacking them together at an angle. Place the decorated panel on top, raising it with fun foam.

As usual, my talented teamies have lots of inspiration for you over on the ATSM blog, and you can help us celebrate and link up your entries there.
