KS Monday–Bunch O’ Balloons Birthday



Happy New Year everyone!

It is my first post of 2012!! Hope your year will be filled with lots of happiness and joy.

I have a quite few family and friends whose birthdays are the month of January, starting from my husband who just turned one year older yesterday!  So, I always make as many birthday cards as I can this time of the year.

I used Multi Step Bunch O’ Balloons for the image and Multi Step Lil’ Elephant for the sentiment.

The set of balloons was stamped  as following these steps: 5th – SU always artichoke, 4th – SU old olive,  3rd – SU mellow moss , 2nd – always artichoke (1 x stamp off), and 1st – old olive (1 x stamp off). The strings were 2nd – SU early espresso, and 1st – early espresso (1 x stamp off). I also stamped the single balloon as 2nd – always artichoke (1 x stamp off), 3rd – old olive, 4th – always artichoke, and 1st – old olive (1 x stamp off). 

The card was designed with MME designer papaers and the frame was created with SB label 6 Nestabilities. To finish off, the ribbon was embellished and photo corners were added on the corners.
