Squash Card for Birthday


I have a fancy fold card to share with you all today - a Squash Card made for a friend's birthday.

I've used a gold star designed cardstock for the book covers and a black cardstock as the base. The gold sheet is super shimmery and I love how it catches the light. I've diecut 3 balloons from PABD's Balloon Mania die set, from 3 watercolored sheets from Altenew's Reflection scrapbook collection. I added a few dots using Glossy Accents. The sentiment is stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink and fussy cut. They are attached to the front cover using foam tape for some dimension. The corners are little triangles cut out of silver shimmer designer cardstock.

The inside of the squash card is filled with different patterned papers from Papericious Happy Birthday pack. I have a couple of stamped sentiments from Mudra's Let's Party stampset and a handwritten message too. To close the squash card, I've used a golden ribbon and made a bow.

Here is a video of how it looks
