Happy (little-bit-late) Birthday Card

Standard

Today’s card is called a triangle fold card. I love sending homemade cards to friends and family but, sometimes, my timing is a bit off! So I decide to make a belated birthday card (might need to make a few more!)

To create this card I used: Close To My Heart Confetti Wishes cardstock, pattern papers ,and embellishment, sentiment from Stampin’ Up Happiest of Birthday’s cling stamp set, Simon Hurley create dye ink pad – triple berry, blue twine for balloon string, Velcro to close the card, and balloons cut using Silhouette Cameo 3.

Measurements: 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock scored at 5.5″ and 4.25″ and then cut diagonally. (creates 2 base cards)
Pattern paper: (2) pieces 4″ x 5.25″ cut diagonally
inside paper: 4″ x 5.25″
Balloons: approx 2.5″ x 2.75″
