Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper

Have you seen the Festive Birthday Desdiagonal slash cardigner Series Paper in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog?  Not only are there plenty of fun, festive, images that make you want to celebrate just about anything, but the bright, happy colors will make you smile!  I really, really love this set of papers.  Now, in the world of stamping, the official term for these double-sided 12 x 12 papers is Designer Series Papers, but that is a mouthful and way too many syllables.  So we call them DSP for short.  Please note:  scroll to the bottom of this postfor my full tutorial, including measurements, to make this card!

For this birthday card, I once again went to one of my absolute favorite designs, the diagonal slash card.  When you have really great DSP, you want it to take center stage, and the diagonal slash card is a great way to do that.  I used the Confetti Celebration stamp set, and I love the way the 2" Circle punch perfectly nestles into the Balloon frame lit.  Layers make our handmade cards look and feel extra special.  So even layering one balloon into another is a special touch and very much worth doing:). You can see another birthday card I made with this same layout and same DSP but with different stamps here. For that card I used the Festive Birthday stamp set which is actually designed to coordinate with the DSP.

To attach the bakers twine to the back of the balloons, simply use Stampin' Dimensionsals and press the bakers twine into the dimensionals.  Because there are several strands of twine, you may need to use extra dimensionals, really covering the back of the balloon, to ensure that everything sticks down well.  Good adhesive in appropriate amounts makes sure your pieces don't fall off your card!

I'm not going to show you the inside of the card because those pics are usually rather boring:)  But I did put a small balloon inside as well as the Happy Birthday stamped sentiment from the Confetti Celebration stamp set.  That's it for me for today.  Another quick and easy card with plenty of pizzazz:)

As always, I've listed and linked the Stampin' Up! supplies below. AND, I'm attaching a link to the tutorial here as well!  Bonus for you!
