Kids birthday card

Well, one of Kayleighs friends from toddler group turned one last month, so of course I had to make the card. But, I have to be honest that despite the fact I have a little girl, I really do not have that many "kids" themed stamps. Hmmmmm....... excuse to go shopping I think :)

Anyways, I did manage to get a cute (if I do say myself) birthday card made.

Started with a white base, and trimmed a bit off the edge. Scalloped a strip of green galore cardstock, and attached. Then, using the balloon image from Crazy for Cupcakes, I stamped it 3 times with basic black ink right onto my card base.

I then stamped it again onto scraps of turquoise, pink and purple, and then coated with a nice thick coat of crystal effects. Once dry, I cut out the balloon and adhered over top of the plain stamped balloon on the card base.

Stamped the greeting onto s strip of yellow card, and did a ribbon tail snip on one edge, and adhered to the card. Finished it off by taking a bit of turquoise ribbon and tying it around a small paperclip, and slipping the clip onto the greeting.

All in all, a cute, bright, cheery kids birthday card.

Hope you enjoy!
