Handmade Cards

Masculine Birthday Balloons 

I needed to make a birthday card for a man and I find these can be quite difficult to get right.

I wanted to use the Lawn Fawn Party Balloons die set again (I’m getting a lot of use from this set, so definitely worth having). The tricky part was making sure it didn’t become too childish in its look. Colour choice was key and, after much too-ing and fro-ing, I settled on a colour palette of blues and browns. I finished it off with a sentiment from a Clearly Besotted stamp set.
