Welcome to the SBTD April Blog Hop as we explore creating Birthday cards as this month's theme. Everyone has a birthday and it is a wonderful feeling to get a card on your special day, but it's even better when it is a hand stamped card from someone you love. I hope that the cards we share today will help give you ideas to create your own beautiful birthday cards.
There is something about Silver and Gold that just makes a birthday card extra special. I chose to use the amazing Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #146277) for the background of my card design. The small polka dots reminds me of confetti and works perfectly for all ages.
Believe it or not, this card has not stamping. The sentiment has been created using the Happy Birthday Thinlet die (item #143700) and die cut it from Gold Glimmer Paper (item #146958) to add a little extra sparkle to this special occasion card design.
To embellish the card, I used the smaller balloon from the Balloon Bouquet Punch (item #140609) and punched out a small balloon from Silver Foil and another from Basic Black cardstock. I used Silver & Whisper White Baker's Twine (item #145569) to create the strings for both balloons.
This is a very simple card design but the bling of the Gold and Silver really turns it into a Wow birthday card. I love that the Basic Black card base makes the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper layer pop. Using Designer Series Paper as the focal point of your design is a fun way to create clean and simple card with minimal supplies. Many of the supplies used in today's card design are retiring and are available while supplies last. If you would like to order any of these products, I would recommend ordering soon to avoid disappointment.Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that you have enjoyed my card and I hope that it inspires you to create your own birthday cards for the people you love.
