Welcome to another fun Color Fusers blog hop where I am featuring the Beautiful Balloons Bundle from Stampin’ Up! for the December 2023 color challenge.

This month’s color challenge is a great wintery color combination, which I thought would be great for a birthday card. Any color could easily be substituted on this card, making it a great layout to use all year long.

Orchid Oasis was used for multiple elements to pull this card together, and the other colors were used for balloon elements. It is clean and simple.

Silver accents were the perfect choice to sprinkle in. I used Rhinestone Basic jewels and some Silver 1/8″ Ribbon. This ribbon is part of the Online Exclusive offering, which can be found in my online store. It comes as a 2 pack with gold as well!

To Create this Card

  • Thick Basic White card base cut 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Front layer of Basic White 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • 4 1/4″ 5 1/2″ Basic White for stamping

Stamp streamers across top of front layer, and sentiment along the bottom, in Orchid Oasis ink. Adhere to card front. Stamp balloons in all 3 colors on Basic White cardstock. Stamp confetti on the 2 larger balloons in Orchid Oasis ink. Die cut and adhere to card font. Die cut a tassel from Orchid Oasis cardstock and adhere to bottom of large balloon. Tie a ribbon bow and adhere to largest balloon. Add Rhinestone Jewels as desired. Stamp front sentiment on Basic White cardstock, and a sentiment inside card, in Orchid Oasis ink. Stamp sentiment a second time, and trim ‘celebration’ down small enough to adhere over the stamped sentiment with dimensionals.
