SSC156 Foil Birthday

Happy Friday, peeps!  Another birthday card today....I need lots this month!  The Sunday Stamps sketch was challenging--a tall and skinny one:

When I first saw the Foil Frenzy DSP in the catalog, I wasn't too impressed, but when I saw it in real life, it knocked my socks off!  I decided to use a piece of it for my card base; I cut and folded it to make a 3" x 7" card, then added a layer of Whisper White and my embellishments:

I stamped the balloons from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and punched them out with the Balloon punch, then layered them on the panel.  The larger Berry Burst balloon was stamped with some flowers from the same set.  I added a Strawberry Slush baker's twine bow and some scalloped trim as well: 

I had punched a few extra balloons, so I put them on the inside for extra fun!  

And since this is an odd-shaped card, I also made a custom envelope using some DSP from the Fresh Florals stack!  Thanks for popping in today! 

It was a rainy day yesterday, so Cassidy decided she wanted to do a little crafting!

And despite the silly face, she did an awesome job on her little purple wagon!

Be blessed and have an awesome day!

Love your card and the pretty colors.
Cute pictures of Cassidy. They do like to make those silly faces. :)
Have a great weekend.

Wow! LeAnne, I didn't really like that foil dsp until I saw your card! This is stunning and the best way I've ever seen this used up until now! The balloons are perfect for foil and you've used just enough white to offset the overpowering glitz the foil dsp can create. I might just have to buy it now! Rats!

Super fun card, LeAnne! That foil DSP and cute balloons make the perfect birthday card! Love the inside too. I'll have to break my foil DSP open now! I love Cassidy's purple wagon, very girly!

That paper is pretty nifty and so are all of those fancy balloons! Terrific card LeAnne. Cassidy's wagon turned out cute!

That foil paper is fabulous! Another add to my wish list. I've never thought of using the flower stamps for the balloons though - great idea. Another fantastic card, LeAnne.

Super cute tall and skinny card, LeAnne! I love all things shinny so I did get this DSP on my first order....I love to make bags, boxes, etc and this paper is perfect for it- just like your card. Thanks so much for playing along at Sunday Stamps! this week!
