Happy Bubble and Fizz Birthday Swaps

Hello there! As promised, I wanted to share my second card for my monthly team swap. Our theme this month was “Birthdays” and I don’t know about you, but I ALWAYS need birthday cards. I never fully realize it until it’s the 3rd month into the year and I have completely depleted my birthday card supply.

For my card, I decided to use the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set because, honestly, I realized that I have never inked it up for as long as I’ve owned it. #shameful I paired it up with the Bubbles and Fizz DSP. Do you have this paper yet? You can only get this paper when you place a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration. There are only a couple days left to take advantage of this awesome sale.
I stamped the balloon images and added some extra detail to them. The two balloons in the back were stamped in Versamark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Love those tiny bubbles! For the balloon in the front, I stamped and then covered it in a layer of glue from the Fine Tipped Glue Pen. When you apply it in a thin layer, it dries clear.  Just remember to leave it alone while it dries. Just walk away. Walk. Away. Let it dry. This is where you have to exercise some patience. Trust me, it’s worth it! I can’t tell you how many times I wasted a perfectly good balloon because of my impatient fingerprints before I learned this lesson.

Finally, here is a quick shot of the inside of the card. As I have mentioned before, I am currently on a kick of decorating the inside of my cards along with the envelopes. I think when you go to the effort to make a card for someone, you really need to go “all in” and decorate ALL of the pieces. It doesn’t take a lot of extra time, since all of the stamps are already on your desk from creating the card.
