Soaring By To Say Happy Birthday! blue0
Posted on 15th July 2022 by Nicole Mullen
It is always fun making a birthday card to match a theme. In this case I was shown a birthday party invite for a toddlers party, but asked to make it a bit 'classy'. Hopefully this delivers! I used:
- Papermilldirect Celestial Blue Plain Card & Card Blank
- Papermilldirect Kraft Card
- Papermilldirect Rose Gold Non Shedding Glitter Card
- Papermilldirect Burgundy Sirio Pearl Card
- Papermilldirect Sage Sirio Pearl Card
- Papermilldirect Hammered White Card
I cut all my card elements out with my Silhouette cutting machine. I then took my hot air balloons and created a two tone pallet for them both, with the Rose Gold as the common thread. I also added my 'snow' onto my mountains.
Once all these elements were assembled I did a test layout on my card. I cut a panel of the Celestial Blue card and laid it on the Celestial Blue card blank, and laid out all the pieces. It felt like something was missing however, so....
I took some Broken China Distress Ink and inked up a graduated sky. It still needed a bit more, so I used a Shimmer Mist to give it some sparkle and texture.
Once this panel was dry I adhered my mountains. I put them on offset, and trimmed off the excess.
All I had to do then was use foam tape to add on all the rest of the elements to really let them pop on the sky.
This was a very fun card to make, and the sparkle in real life is perfect!
