Hooray for birthdays!

With all of the holiday cooking, shopping, and decorating we sometimes get so caught up in the moment that we forget to get that special birthday card for our family and friends who celebrate their special day during the busiest time of the year.  That is why I like to have a collection of birthday cards on hand so I can still get that special card mailed out on time.    I made several of the birthday card below because I just need to change the inside sentiment to add the personal touch it needs.

I stamped and punched out my balloons, put some on with snail adhesive and used Dimensionals to raise a few up.  I added Linen Thread behind the balloons and tied them together.  I then added my coordinating Washi Tape and a piece of Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper for more embellishment, and then added my birthday wishes to the bottom.

To save time I often make more than one card at a time of the same design.  You never know when you are going to need one, and once you have your design it is easy to cut your material for a few cards all at once.
