Hot Air Balloon Birthday

Just wanted to share. This is my second birthday card of the day. You will find this in the March/April Issue of Paper Crafts magazine on page 72 (Quilted Balloon Card) and is designed by Kalyn Kepner. What a creative idea she had. I loved the design and the pattern for the balloon and clouds was online.

I do NOT do well stitching on cards. So I used a gel pen to give it the appearance of having been stitched - much safer for me :-)

Only stamp from Hero Arts is the sentiment.

Again - thank you for looking!


  1. Fun card Pam and that stitching looks fantastic! I love the quilted effect.

  2. Hi Pam! I just stumbled across this blog post online and I'm so flattered that you chose one of my cards as inspiration for your own! Your card is so cute and I never would have known that the stitching was actually a gel pen! Awesome work!
