Hi everyone! Diana here with a quick, easy, and fun birthday card that works for all! This card came together quite quickly and I’m loving how the dew drops match so well with the colors I chose for my card.
I started with a fun circle card cover plate and cut it out in a light blue cardstock. I used Birthday Paw-ty by Hero Arts to create the confetti strip in red and green and then stamped out three balloons and the pup and die cut them out.
I colored the balloons and the pup in with colored pencils in matching colors. I chose to add the sentiment to the green strip at the bottom and add some dew drops in the upper right side to add a bit more visual appeal.
Happy 4th of July! Happy Birthday United States of America. Today we are going to make faux marquee letters and use them on a birthday card using fabulous strong yellow mini dew drops from the bubble collection! You absolutely will love how simple and on trend this card is.
