Dachshund with Balloons Birthday Card

dachshund balloon birthday

Just back from a week at the beach, trying to get my crafting feet back underneath of me (and finish the mountain of vacation laundry!).

This is a birthday card for a special friend. I am hoping that it made her smile! (I mailed it as I left for the beach.)

I used an embossing folder to make the background for another project, and used an ink blending tool to spread Distress Inks (Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass). But, I decided it didn’t work with the original project.

I think it makes a great backdrop for the excited dachshund and his balloons.

I used my laminator, a Heidi Swapp MINC sheet, foil, and a balloon die to “make” a mylar balloon.

Supplies: Stamps – Lawn Fawn, Papertrey Ink, paper – Heidi Swapp MINC sheet, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, inks – Copic 110, E15, E53, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (dachshund, stitched rectangle), Taylored Expressions (balloons), embossing folder – Provo Craft, enamel dots – Stampin’ Up!, foil – Ocean Blue ThermOWeb, floss – DMC.
