Happy, Happy Birthday

Welcome to the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog! Thank you so much for popping in to visit. I hope the weather finds you well where you are and that you are safe from the fires in the western United States, dry from Harvey, Irma, and the flooding in Asia. Whew, I need some crafty therapy!

Janette here to share with you what I've created with Concord & 9th Happy Balloons and Sprinkles. With school back in session we are heavy on the birthday party circuit. This card was relatively quick to whip up and who doesn't love rainbows and shakers?!

  • Apply acetate to back of sprinkle panel covering die cut opening completely.
  • Adhere black balloon and ribbon die cuts to front of sprinkle panel on top of acetate. They will nest. Trim to make one balloon look like it is behind the other.
  • Trim rainbow blended panel to 4.25" x 5.5".
  • Apply 2 layers of foam tape around balloon openings on back of sprinkle panel. Be sure to leave no gaps in the walls where sequins can escape. Remove paper tape lining.
  • Make a small mound of sequins on the rainbow blended panel in the area that will be behind the balloons.
  • Adhere sprinkle panel to rainbow blended panel.
  • Adhere black birthday banner.
  • Apply to A2 folded card base, slide in envelope and watch someone smile when they open it.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and that you have been inspired to get creating! 
Stay safe out there paper lovers!
xo, Janette
