I made this card candy for a swap I am in. I just love using this set. I thought it would be cute for a kid's birthday.
I stamped the balloons on different color paper, trimmed them out, stuck them together in a group and used wire for the string to keep its curl. I also added stickles to the balloons to highlight them.
Stamped the cake on some photo paper that I had left from a shaving cream technique because the swirls of red and blue reminded me of icing, used a tag punch and ribbon for the tag with the cake.
I kept the bear simple with just close to cocoa ink and glossy white cs, placed on a gable green mat and paper pierced the one side.
The Happy Birthday is stamped and sponged with not quite navy and brilliant blue.
I really hope they like them, as they were fun to make.
