"Tag Time" Birthday

How about a super-simple card for today?

For this card, I used a stamp from a Stampin’ Up! set called Tag Time. I stamped the stamp on white cardstock, and then stamped the balloons on three different colors of cardstock – last year’s In Colors – Buckaroo Blue, Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi. I colored the balloons with a white gel pen, a silver gel pen, and a blue sparkly pen, then cut them out carefully. I mounted them on Pop Dots and attached them to the base image. I matted the image on a piece of Buckaroo Blue cardstock. I used a Square Nestability to emboss the frame on the card front. The cardstock I used for the card is from PaperTrey Ink. It’s so nice and thick and embosses so crisply. It’s great, especially for Clean and Simple cards.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

What a great card! I love those popped up balloons! And I totally agree with you about Papertrey's white cardstock -- that is the only white I'll use too!

Really cute card and I really like the look of the nestability embossed frame. Would you mind e-mailing me the recipe for the sandwich to do that?
