Hello!

This card features die cutting and heat embossing. I started out by die cutting the second larges balloon die from the “Balloons” Wafer Thin Dies from Simon Says Stamp. Once I had done that I stamped one of the Happy Birthday stamps and the two balloons from the Birthday balloons stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I tied a bow around the bottom of the balloon and adhered it onto the card base.

I have created this card using the stamp set Popcorn the Bear Birthday Hugs from Crafter’s Companion. I stamped the bear and coloured it using Distress Markers. I also mixed some Liquid Pearls from Ranger, in the colour Platinum Pearl, with some water and added that to the bow!
