Birthday card for Elliot

This past weekend we were invited to
 a birthday party for a 1 yr old.
So of course, I had to make a card.
I stamped the balloons onto different colors of 
paper and card stock and fussy cut them.
They were adhered to the card base with foam tape.
I tied a bit of home made baker's twine to each balloon and
gathered the strings and tied them together.
I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting onto white card stock 
then used my Perfect Layers Mini tools to 
mat it with all the colors I used for the balloons.
Perfect Layers make getting perfect cuts every time easy.
I made the envelope using my 
from We R Memory Keepers
Making envelopes is quick and easy with the
Envelope Punch Board.
For the name I just punched circles and stamped 
the letters with Crushed Olive Distress Ink.
Of course, Elliot didn't have a clue that he even received the card
and gift.  He's only 1 year old after all.
But his Mom knew right away that I had made it and
she loved it.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you'll pop in 
again soon.

Until then Happy Crafting!
