Welcome to the OSAT Blog Hop. Whether you came here from the super talented Marissa Gunn or just hopped on, welcome! We are having a Birthday Bash this month, which is so perfect because birthday cards are probably the most popular type of greeting card. Everyone needs birthday cards!
This HOP couldn’t have come at a better time. Just like you, our house always needs birthday cards for family and friends. I recently realized that a system was needed to help keep me on top of getting everyone’s birthday cards out on time. Don’t you hate it when you forget to get a card in the mail on time?!?
I had this adorable Card Tin that I got for free as a Sale-a-Bration promotion. Unfortunately this tin just sold out, yesterday! But if you have one, it’s a great way to stage your cards for each month. Since I am a glitz & glam girl and this is going to sit on my desk I decided to add some Gold Glimmer! The Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set was perfect to emboss the month on each divider. Disclaimer: the tin only came with nine dividers. I did have to steal three more from another tin to have enough for all 12 months!
I used the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper to create a His and Hers card pair. Just a tiny change in the DSP print and the choice of balloon and it you have a card that is perfect for a guy or a gal!
If you want to make your polka-dotted balloon SUPER shiny, use the Fine Tip Glue pen to fill in each black circle, after you have attached the glimmer paper. When it dries the dots are extra shiny! I love these little balloons! They are perfect for every birthday!
