Cake Crazy Balloon Adventure Blues

Now that the retirement list is out, we know which stamp sets and accessories will not be carried over from the current Occasions Catalog  to the upcoming new Annual Catalog. Two such sets are used on the card I have to share with you today.

Funny thing...up until today I've had the name of this stamp set backwards! I've been calling it Crazy Cake when it's really named Cake Crazy! This card is for a guy, so I went with a masculine color combo and minimal embellishments. For added texture I popped up the banner and used the Confetti Embossing Folder on the main panel. This EF is one of the items that has been discounted on the Retirement list by it's only $3.75!

Colors used: Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay & Emerald Envy.

The outside is fun and festive, but the inside really pops...literally!

I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the coordinating Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies. Those are also a real bargain right now at 1/2 off...thats only $16.50 for the set of 8 thinlits that both cut and score to create this unique pop up for the inside of your card. One of the dies in this set creates a slot, shown on the left panel of the card. It easily creates a pocket for a tag or in this case a gift card.

I love the sentiments and the fonts used in the Balloon Adventures set as well. I've had a lot of fun combining these two stamp sets  to make fun birthday cards. I have not used them on any scrapbook pages yet, but I hope to do that soon. If you have not yet ordered these items, I'd suggest to do that soon as well! Especially with them being on sale, they could be gone quickly at that price.
