Concord & 9th Birthday Basics Card

 Hello and welcome! Today's card features Concord & 9ths Birthday Basics Turnabout stamp and matching dies to create this bright 20th Birthday card. 

For this card, I started with an A2 sized card using smooth white heavy weight cardstock. Then I created a background piece using the largest die in the MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX set and smooth white cardstock. 

Then I used my Concord & 9th Birthday Basics turnabout stamp and VersaMark Ink along with clear embossing powder to create the background. Once the embossing powder was set, I used Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass to create the rainbow background.

I die cut the balloon from the Turnabout stamp and die set and used Distress Oxide ink in Spun Sugar to add some color to the balloon. Then I sprayed the balloon with water to add some fun detail. 

I die cut the word "happy" from blue and black cardstock and glued them together to give the sentiment some depth. 

I stamped the word "birth" from the happy birthday sentiment that comes with the Birthday Basics Turnabout stamp. I die cut the banner from different colors of scrap cardstock and added a white glitter cardstock to the word "day". I used Lawn Fawns Oliver's Stitched ABC/123 die to cut the 20 for the balloon. I used the same glitter cardstock as the word "day".  Then I die cut the 20 from black cardstock and glued them together to give the number some dimension on the balloon. 

I love how simple this card was to make but it has such a wow factor! It's bright and cheerful, perfect for wishing someone a Happy Birthday! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
