Balloons and Confetti Birthday Girl Card

A fun birthday card for a sweet girl who just turned 10.

Because 10-year-old girls need a little sparkly glitter, the balloons were made using Ultra Metallic

Glitter Vinyl from StyleTechCraft.

The card uses the Confetti and Balloons Die Set from the Maker’s Movement.

Card Details…

  • I like a little dimension when I create cards, so I added the glitter vinyl onto cardstock before die-cutting it.  I added foam mounting squares under the balloons to pop them up.
  • It’s hard to tell by my picture but the heart balloons are hot pink not red.  The strings on the balloons were cut using silver ultra-metallic glitter vinyl.
  • I used the tiny heart die-cuts to make heart confetti.  It adds a little extra fun.

The Gumball Machine Stamp & Die Set features all the pieces you need to create an adorable

gumball machine. The two coordinated globe glass container shapes let you make perfect

shapes for shaker cards. You can add sequins, shaker sprinkles, and other embellishments to

add more fun to your craft project. This set is great for making birthday cards, greeting cards,

and gift tags.

  • TIP…When I am die-cutting small pieces, I like to run the paper through the Xyron Create-A-Sticker Machine* to add adhesive to the back before cutting them out.  It makes all the little pieces stickers and makes assembling the card a breeze.
  • I used the Mini Maker Die-Cutting Machine to die-cut out the pieces.  While you won’t use it for all your die-cutting needs, I love the compact size on my workspace.

I’ve been struggling lately with lighting, and the winter grays don’t help.

I used the newly fallen snow as my white background.

If you look close, you may notice the snow crystals underneath the wood slice.

I can’t wait until Spring!
