Muse - MFT - Birthday Hello

Hello Everyone,

Sharing my card for a couple of challenges:

Muse 182 - inspired by Anita's fun and colorful balloon card ...colors, balloons, birthday sentiment are the elements that I used on my card.

MFT - 2016 Card Design Superstar - used stencils cut from Balloon STAX dies to create the ink blended balloons.  The dies and stamp are MFT.

The 'birthday' part of the sentiment was cut from the balloon panel.  Then, 3 'birthday' cuts were made using black card stock.  The black pieces were glued together and placed in the negative opening.  The part cut from the balloon panel was glued on top of the black pieces for some dimension. For some sparkle 'birthday' was painted with a few coats of clear WOS and sequins with gem stones in the center of each were added.

Note - the card stock is not pink ... it is white IRL!!

Hope you're having a fun day.

  1. I love your take on my card. Great colours and the stacked inlaid die cut looks fab.
    Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x

  2. Love how you have done the card and with the inset die cut over the balloons, perfect.

  3. Awesome card, Marilyn! Love that you sponged the sentiment and raised it quite a bit! Fun colors, too!
