Boy's Birthday Balloon


I made this for a little cousin (a couple of times removed) who is turning 2 this week. I thought this digi from Sassy Cheryl's was perfect for a little boy.



Note: finished card size is 5" x 7"

Start with a piece of dark blue card stock measuring 5" x 10", score at 5" and fold.

Cut a piece of light blue card stock measuring 4 3/4" X 4 3/4". Stamp the balloon in dark blue ink across the top of the light blue card stock mat. Mount a piece of patterned paper measuring 2 3/8" x 4 5/8""on the bottom half of the mat.

Adhere a piece of dark blue ribbon across the mat, covering the "seam" where the patterned paper stops. Mount the mat to the front of the card.


Resize the image to 3" in height. Print the digi stamp on white card stock, and trim to a rectangle measuring 2" x 3 1/4". Color with COPIC markers. I used these colors:

  • Hair: E30, E35, E37
  • Skin: E000, E01, R20
  • Balloon: YR02, YR04, YR07
  • Shirt: YR02, Orange SPICA
  • Shorts: B02, B06
  • Flower: Y13, YR02, YG13
  • Shadow: C0, C2

Cut mats for the image - dark blue card stock cut to 2 1/4" x 3 1/2", and orange card stock cut to 2 1/8" x 3 3/8". Mount the image onto the orange, and the orange onto the dark blue. Mount in the center of the card front.

Finish by mounting 3 blue metal dots in the upper right corner of the card front.

Thanks for stopping by!
