I’m starting today’s post with a question! Excluding the lower sentiment, is the message on today’s card obvious or did it take a bit of thinking about? As always, feedback will be greatly appreciated! ☺
The sentiment is a new stamp that was recently released by Stampin’ Up! It all started with Shannon at SU head office in Utah. She started the “I’m bringing birthdays back” campaign. It’s an attempt at getting people to go back to sending real birthday cards rather than e-cards and Facebook birthday wishes. I think it’s a great piece of marketing!
I used Basic Black Archival Ink to stamp the hot air balloon basket so it was attached to the balloon. Then I stamped the Happy Birthday, which is from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set, directly onto the balloon using the same black ink. I stamped another basket, cut around the edges and adhere it to a very small piece of Basic Black Card Stock. I did this because I needed to cover up the ends of the string lines that are holding the imbringingbirthdaysback and I didn’t feel the DSP would hold up to well on its own.

Nothing better than getting a REAL birthday card in the mail, love your card
Many thanks, Kaye. Since this camp[aign started I've gone back to using my Outlook calendar so hopefully I'll be sending more cards this year! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

Erm….I had to read on before the penny dropped. I just thought it was a "nice decoration" duh!! lol :o)
Hi, Audrey. I didn't think it looked as obvious in real life as it did in my mind when I planned it! Many thanks for your feedback, I really do appreciate it. ☺ ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
