ID: S&S - Straw Art - Holly Jolly Birthday
5"w x 7"h

Created: May 31, 2009
Modified: March 15, 2010

A note: this card made it's way into Just Cards Special Issue Birthdays 2010 released March 2010.

This card was mailed in for the theme of "Happy Birthday" at Scrap & Stamp magazine but ended up in Just Cards.

I did my straw art on glossy white cardstock using black Sumi ink dropped blobs on the paper and blew through a straw to disperse the ink. The patterns it created were just great. I had also gotten some copic markers recently and decided to color in spaces using them. I then punched out the circles, mounted them slightly larger  bright colored cardstock.

Ran the blue cardstock through my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday folder, rounded the corners with a large corner rounder, mounted that to a matching green main card also rounded the corners. Adhere the circle shapes (faux balloons) adding waxed linen thread to hold them and a pretty pink bow. The words (Quietfire Design) are rubber stamped on a nice golden cardstock with Versafine and clear embossed .
