This week, I combined two challenges. Global Design Project 23 and Fab Friday 80 provided the inspiration for this fun colorful birthday card. The Confetti Textured impressions embossing folder was inked up with Watermelon Wonder Ink before running it through the big shot. Don’t worry it won’t ruin your embossing folder! You can run the folder under water to clean off the ink.
The Balloon Celebration stamp set coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet punch so beautifully that you won’t be able to stop making them. Jazz them up with a bit of clear Wink of Stella. The Balloons are set in an oval frame of Watermelon Wonder. Finish it off with an silver heat embossed “Happy Birthday” sentiment framed out with the same paper punched out with the Blossom Bunch punch. A little real red bow adds a nice touch too!
