Sweet Happy Birthday!
Today's card is for a sweet little girl, my great-niece, that just turned one. I used my new Mama Elephant Pandamonium set and my favorite balloon stamp set from V's Sweet Ideas. I paper pieced the balloon and heat embossed the #1 on it with white embossing powder. The sentiment was also heat embossed with white embossing powder. After dry embossing the panel behind the panda, I used distress inks to add color. I used a direct to paper technique to add some white pigment ink to the clouds. More cardstock was inked to make the grassy area and this panel was popped up over the patterned paper background. Some bakers twine and some sequins (also from V's Sweet Ideas) finish off the front.
The interior has more paper pieced balloons and another sentiment. I used the same die cut on the interior and more of the plaid patterned paper.
