Happy Birthday Shaped Card

I have a sweet shaped birthday card to share today using the  Happy Birthday Balloons stamp from Simply Stamps and a card die set from Sizzix.

Birthday Present Shaped Card Jeanne_Streiff

One thing I really like about stamps from Simply Stamps is they are clear stamps mounted onto a repositional sheet on a wood block. So if you like wood blocks you can use them as is or if you like clear stamps you can peel them off and use them with you acrylic blocks or in my case the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia.

1a Birthday Present Shaped Card Jeanne_Streiff

I started out with die cutting the pieces for my card back. I used the (661844) Gift Card Fold- its die set from Sizzix. It’s so cute.

Then I assembled the front to the folded card back.

I stamped the balloons I colored the balloons and cut them out to layer later.

Next I stamped the banner. It will be cut out and layered. Ignore the smudge. Since I will be cutting this out it won’t matter.

4 Birthday Present Shaped Card Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped the middle section of the Happy Birthday Balloons stamp onto white cardstock. This with be die cut as the center panel of my card and the base for my balloons and banner.

Here it is after die cutting and my balloon and banner layered on it. Perfect it!

6 Birthday Present Shaped Card Jeanne_Streiff

I assembled the rest of the die cut pieces.

7 Birthday Present Shaped Card Jeanne_Streiff

To finish my card I added some dots of glitter glue along the pink panel, added some pen stitching to each of the layers and then made a little torn paper flower to add a little dimension to the “bow”. To make my flower I tore two rough circles from pink cardstock and crumpled them. Then I layered the flower pieces and added a dot of white acrylic paint to the center.

Hop you enjoyed my project!
