Let's Celebrate Birthdays!

I recently hosted a Birthday Party - but at this party the guests had a job to do.  They each made eight birthday cards!  Yes, I created a special Card Party and everyone made eight cards.  So over the next several days, I'll share the samples.

First up:  Celebrate!

This card was a hit.  And we made it in two colors.  This was done in Mint Macaron (#138337) and Black (#121045), and used Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog, It's My Party (#140552).

Fabulous Four (#134174)was stamped after coloring the stamp using Basic Black ($100082) and Mint Macaron (#138333) Stampin' Write Markers.  The corner punch was done with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch (#139683), and we punched little balloons using the Party Punch Pack (#140608) and Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper (#140557).  Balloon Strings were drawn using a Project Life Journaling Pen(#135304), and the top layer was popped up on Dimensionals (#104430).

We also did this card in pink:
It has a Blushing Bride (#131198) base, with Watermelon Wonder (#138334) layers.  Because I didn't have DSP to punch for the balloons, we made our own.  Stamping Balloon Builder (#140645) balloons with Watermelon Wonder (#138323) ink gave us a pretty, mottled look and we just punched and adhered these little gems.

 The reverse side of the striped Designer Paper has beautiful roses, and a few of the attendees chose to use that side for their card...

Pretty, huh?

Using the same layout but different DSP or colors can really change your cards.  Try it!
