It’s Your Birthday . . .

Everytime I use this sentiment from the Balloon Advenures set, I break out in song!  This is one of the cards we made at class this weekend.  We got lots of exercise with all the die cutting and embossing, but it was well worth it!

The three presents were made with theal Balloon Pop Up Thinits, as were the bows.  Then each present was embossed using Perfect Polka Dots (retired), Stripes, and Lucky Stars.  It’s important to die cut the present shape before embossing the paper.  If you emboss first and then die cut, you will flatten the embossed image.  The next step was to stamp the sentiment and die cut that with the Stitched Shapes framelits (which is becoming one of my favorite dies!)  The last step is to assemble it.

As always, I’m happy to answer any questions you have about this project or any other Stampin’ Up! question.

Happy Stampin’!
