Cheery Happy Birthday

Are you needing a simple and cheery birthday card? This one looks complicated. That is because of the beautiful designer paper I used. And who doesn't love the Happy Birthday thinlits that are new as of June 1st in the Annual Catalog? Honestly, it is easy to use and makes a big impression on your projects.

I used our new balloon honeycomb embellishments, but when I added it, it got swallowed up on that beautiful paper. Easy fix! Punch out a balloon using our balloon builder punch in a coordinating color of cardstock.

Here is my tip for adding a string to the honeycomb balloons, peel off one side of the balloon's backing to reveal the sticky (yes! they are self-adhesive) stick your string to the exposed adhesive. Place exposed adhesive to your project. Then peel off backing from other side of balloon. You can move the balloon string a bit once it is placed to make it seem like it is coming down the center of the balloon.
