Happy Birthday Pairings


I have a super easy birthday card to share with you today.  There's no stamping, and it's a great way to use little leftover strips of card stock.  I used the Concord & 9th Birthday Perfect Pairings Dies on this card, along with several colors of their card stock.  

I began by attaching 1/4" strips of card stock in 6 shades (Honeysuckle, Oceanside, Grapefruit, Buttercup, Dove, and Aqua Sky) onto a white A2 sized piece of white card stock, that had several pieces of white liner on it (liquid glue would also work, but I find the white liner is less messy, and won't dry out).   Once the panel was covered, I trimmed the overhanging edges of the card stock, and then trimmed the whole panel down to a 4"x5-1/4" size.  

Using the Birthday Perfect Pairings Dies, I die cut the sentiment from black card stock, and the balloons from vellum (out of stock, as of the date of posting, here is a similar substitute).  I layered the die cuts on top of my card front, and attached them using liquid glue.  Then I attached the card front to a white top folding card base, made from heavyweight card stock. 

As a final touch, and to add a bit of sparkle to the card, I coated the sentiment with a bit of Nuvo Shimmer pen in Glitter Gloss. 

Thanks for stopping by!
