Silly Goose Birthday Card

From the list above, I chose Twine, Birthday Sentiment & Embossing Folder to create my birthday card.

I used the Stampin' Up! Silly Goose Stamp set, Stylish Shapes Dies, Regency Park DSP & Gingham Embossing Folder.

Basic White cardstock was used for my card base followed by Balmy Blue cardstock which was embossed.

The circle was cut using Stylish Shapes Dies and shaded along the top of the circle with a blending brush and Balmy Blue ink.

The goose was stamped using Memento ink.  I colored the beak and feet with Pumpkin Pie (Lt) Stampin Blends.  The balloon and hat colored with Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends.
The goose was fussy cut and adhered onto the circle with dimensionals.

Pastel Sequins embellishments were then added onto the circle as well.

Two strips of Regency Park DSP were layered over the embossed cardstock.
The sentiment was stamped using Memento ink and die cut with Stylish Shapes Dies.

A small piece of Balmy Blue/White Variegated Ribbon was cut at an angle on both ends.  Linen Thread was wrapped around the center of the ribbon and tied in a knot, then adhered with a mini glue dot.

This beautiful DSP was also added on the envelope flap.

Inside my card is a layer of Basic White cardstock.  The goose was stamped in the lower corner using Balmy Blue ink and the sentiment stamped with Memento ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
