A Way With Words

“Happy Birthday” Balloon Cards with Video

June 23, 2018

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am sharing a happy stack of Happy Birthday balloon cards created using new dies designed by Suzanne Cannon for the A Way With Words collection.  The cards are perfect for kids’ and adults’ birthdays alike.  Also, this is a great project to create with kids, friends and family.

Before sharing the instructions, I have created a video showing the different cards and helpful tips on how to make my favorite balloon card with the cloudy skies background:

Card Instructions:

  1. Create top-fold 6×6 card using solid color cardstock.
  2. Cut and mat desired printed paper to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
  3. Die cut Happy, Birthday, balloon and bow knot from desired paper (translucent or opaque).
  4. Mount Happy, Birthday and bow knot to balloon using liquid adhesive.
  5. Mount balloon using tape or liquid adhesive.

Easy! Like I said, this is a great project to do with loved ones!


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a happy, crafty day.

Big Hugs,

Kathy Jo

    What a grewat idea to give a stack of birthday cards to someone else so they can enjoy sending them! And I like the big white card inside for writing and drawing, a way for the sender to get in on the fun.
