A good friend of mine's daughter has a birthday coming up next month. She's turning 10 and I wanted to make something special for her. I have the card done, but still brainstorming some gift ideas.
The card base is 5" square and is cut from Cricut Art Philosophy with slate cardstock. I cut 2 square mats, one from twilight sized 4 1/4" and the other from white daisy sized 4". (I used CCR to search for the images I wanted so I do not have page numbers to locate them in the handbooks) The banner is cut from Birthday Bash at 1", the balloons are cut from Creative Cards at 1 1/2". The paper for the banner is from Fancy Pants Designs, a 6x6 paper pad called Time for Spring. A super cute paper pad! For the balloons, I covered them with the bonding memories glue pen and covered them with glitter. I used bakers twine to make a bow for the banner and the strings for the balloons. They are both adhered and raised with foam tape.
On the inside, I cut the same square mats as the front. The sentiment is from The Party is On, C1568. This is one of the exclusive Hostess Sets available when you host a gathering. I stamped this with Hollyhock also. Along the bottom I stamped a border with one of the Washi Wonder stamps, D1558 using second generation stamping. This again is another Hostess Rewards sets available when you host a gathering. This was stamped in twilight. I wanted something a little extra so I used the tiny heart stamp from Lifting Spirits, C1570 and stamped it over the washi border in cotton candy.
I think it turned out super cute! Hope you enjoyed today's project!
