40th Birthday Celebration!

| 2 min read

Good morning, it's time for my latest design team tutorial for Visible Image. I don't know about you, but I often have made a card ahead of time but when it comes to the time to wrap the presents I often don't have a tag at hand!

The 'Birthday Balloons' stamp set not only makes awesome birthday cards, but is brilliant for tag making too. I love that it also has numbers in the set, and co-ordinating dies available for the balloons and all the numbers! They make it quick and simple to make any tag needed.

I decided to make a pair of tags for a 40th birthday!

Birthday Balloons 40th Tags


I took a piece of mop up inky card from my stash and die cut 2 tags from it. I then added the little stars flourish from the Birthday balloons stamp set, stamping them randomly using gold pigment ink.

step 1

I stamped the balloons in different colours and added the stars flourish to these too. I clear heat embossed them to add some shine.

step 2

I die cut them all out

step 3

and then added some bakers' twine to the back of each balloon.

step 4

I stamped the 4 and 0 from the set in red, and die cut those out too. I also used 2 of the sentiments from the 'Best Birthday Ever' sentiments set.

step 5

I then put my design together and matted each tag on to red card. As a final touch I added a baker's twine cord to each tag and a bow to the balloons.

Here they are separately

These really are must have birthday sets for your stash. I keep them out on my craft desk as I use them so much for cards and tags!
