Up, Up and Away Male Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your Bank Holiday been? We have had fun celebrating our daughter's birthday. First we went  to the Southsea Aquarium, then we went to see the new Turtle Movie (a childhood favourite of our daughter) and finishing with a meal. It was a very nice day she is on her way home now with her rabbits.

I have made a few male cards for my stash recently having found myself short a few days ago.

I have been reusing greetings cards again. The balloon card in the background was one of the get well cards my husband got when he broke his wrist. I kept seeing it on the side knowing that I wanted to make a card out of it. I used an Crafter's Companion cloud embossing folder to create the background. 

I used a Spellbinders die to create my balloon to match the ones on the reused cards. 

I decided to make a quick card with the Spellbinders die and the cloud embossing folder as well.  

I have a few male cards for my stash now. I won't be crafting for a while we are going away for a few days. 

Have a great week. 

Happy Crafting. 

Hugs Jackie
