Here’s a birthday card that I made last week for one of my son’s friends.   I used Valentine’s Day (Kissing Booth) pattern paper for this card.  At first glance you wouldn’t normally think Birthday when you see the paper line because there are a lot of hearts.  However, birthday girl really LOVES all shades of  pink and so these papers were perfect to make a few party items.  

I made some cupcake toppers & cupcake sleeves for the party so I used the three patterns you see here on the balloons.    The only requirement I got from her mother was that I had to have pink in whatever I used.

The sentiment seen here is a sticker placed on ivory cardstock.  I wanted to have more options than my rubber stamps for messages so I got some sticker sheets with sentiments that can be used on layouts or cards.

I used my circle punch to cut the balloons and then added a triangle at the bottom for the ends of the balloon.   I popped the balloons and sentiment out with pop dots for added dimension.   This also helped make the balloon strings hang nicely with the balloons being raised.  Then I used my new pink twine for the balloon strings.

Next I’ll share the photos of the cupcake sleeves  (first time making some) and the cupcake toppers.   

Supplies:  Pattern paper-Kissing Booth Collection (Better Half, You + Me, Cupid, Oh Darling), Ivory Cardstock, Pink Twine, Pop dots, Circle punch, Sticker-SRM Press Inc. Birthday Sentiments
