Celebration Time for FMS #297

Stampin Up Birthday Card idea Michelle Gleeson Celebration Time FMS297 Stampinup SU

Basic Black and Whisper White are always in style. Add the Celebration Time stamp set and Pick A Pattern Washi Tape to get a wow factor.

Today’s card was created for a dear friend whose birthday is this week and it was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketch Challenge.

FMS Final 297-001

The base of my card is 5″ x 5″ followed by a layer 1/4″ smaller. Then the focal point was created using 4 1/4″ and 4″ squares. The washi tape was laid and overlap in the lower right corner.

The balloons were created in a snap with the Balloon Bouquet punch. I used Silver Glimmer paper, Lemon Lime Twist and Tempting Turquoise card stock for the balloons. Then I tied Basic Black Baker’s Twine on the tow colored balloons and White Baker’s Twine left over from a Paper Pumpkin kit.

The sentiment on the front and the inside of the card is from Celebration Time. i decided to use the wonky square on the inside to coordinate with the outside. I think it gives the card a fun factor.

Thanks for stopping by.
