Stampin' Up! 2023 Beautiful Balloons Birthday Shaker Card
May 29, 2023
Hello friends, today I have a bright and happy birthday shaker card for you using the Beautiful Balloons bundle from the 2023 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.
I started with a piece of white cardstock (slightly smaller on all sides than the base card) blended with Azure Afternoon, Fresh Freesia and Lemon Lime Twist. I then cut the combined balloons shape from this and traced that shape onto the base card too.
Next I adhered foam strips around the outside of the shape and added some sequins (mine are some retired ones I had in my stash).
For the piece that gets adhered over the top, I:
- Embossed some tassles and streamers and random dots onto the sponged cardstock using white embossing powder;
- Added a piece of window sheet attached on reverse (tip: if you wipe the sequin side of this with your embossing buddy, it helps the sequins to not stick to the window sheet).
- Die cut a large balloon in Fresh Freesia with the small star embedded in the balloon (make sure the star is low enough to emboss Happy Birthday onto the balloon too.
Pin this Stampin Up card idea for later.
