Today’s project is a fun birthday card made with the Sweetest Thing stamp set and How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper from the new How Sweet It Is suite (pages 14-15 in the 2019 Occasions catalog.) I used assorted Circle punches to cut card stock balloons, and Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon to anchor them. I think the little Whisper White twine bow is the perfect finish. 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Gorgeous Grape card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Sweetest Thing stamp set:

  • sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Cut using Circle Punch sizes 1/2″ up to 1-3/4″:

  • sentiment
  • assorted sizes from scraps of Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, and Gorgeous Grape CS

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • beginning with the sentiment, punched circles glued together, building out from the center
  • 5 pieces of ribbon adhered onto the DSP layer using Tear & Tape, crossing in the middle
  • twine tied around ribbon and tied in a bow
  • circle cluster adhered over the tops of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals
