Happy Birthday Balloons

Guy or Masculine cards are so hard for me to make.  I am all about the flowers and the sparkle and the butterflies.  A friend at work had a birthday this week and I wanted to make him a card. I used my Silhouette Cameo to create Happy Birthday with Balloons.

Masculine it is.  I found a nice chunky birthday sentiment in my Silhouette Studio software library.  My Silhouette Cameo has been giving me fits.  I wasted at least 3 sheets of 12 x 12 card stock because my Silhouette didn’t cut all the way through.  And then I tried to cut the same design without removing the mat and it didn’t cut in the same place.  Ugh.  I’m trying a different brand of paper and see if cuts more cleanly.  My Favorite Things balloon dies cut out the balloons and I drew the string.  The white highlight was added using a white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Tune in tomorrow for another project.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.


Luke 6:  37 – 38  “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.  Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
