Happy Birthday Party Balloons Masculine Card

Inspiration for this card was the beautiful sugar coated confetti cardstock from Doodlebug.  I think it makes a great masculine birthday card.

Glitter cardstock matching the Doodlebug paper was found in my stash and then die cut using My Favorite things Party Balloons.  The strings for the balloons were die cut using Lawn Fawn’s Party Balloons and Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock.

The sentiment is from CZ Designs Birthday Palooze die.  The problem I found after cutting the word was that the confetti easily peels off the front of the cardstock, so I decided to cover it with Ranger Glossy Accents to keep them in place and ensure that they would remain intact for the recipient of the card.  I really liked the look of the dimension added in this process.

Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was cut using a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller and adhered to the back.  An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# Red Hot Cardstock and the white rectangle was adhered to the front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

The balloon strings were adhered to the back of each balloon with Scotch Tape.  The orange balloon was adhered directly to the rectangle with liquid glue.  The red and yellow balloon strings were adhered with liquid glue, but 3M 1/2″ foam tape was adhered to the back of the balloon.

The happy was cut three additional time from red cardstock and all word die cuts were adhered together with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  Before adhered to the focal image the secondary sentiment from Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold and Party was stamped with Altenew Crimson Ink.  The word die cut was then adhered with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.
