My sister-in-law, Diane, celebrates her birthday in May, and I definitely needed to send her a card to let her know I am thinking about her and sending her happy wishes. She has been under the weather a bit as well, so I wanted to be sure to get her birthday card off in time. With my short timeline due to vacationing to visit my Mom in California, I chose to use a birthday card that I made in a January card class. I loved this design just as it was presented, so I re-created my card just as shown in Liz Thayer's original design.
I just love balloon cards for birthdays, and I especially liked the glitter effect added to each of the tri-colored balloons. It gave them a sensational look with the sentiment nestled amongst these balloons and featured center-front. The two-layer die-cut shapes in black and white really set off the sentiment and made it pop! Take a look below at my finished card:
Featured below is my completed card interior. I chose to create a design using colors that coordinated with the card's front, and I also made up a little verse to fit the birthday occasion.
