Happy Birthday Balloons with the Circle Thinlit

 Birthday Balloons using the Circle Thinlits
I just love the new Circle Thinlits.  It's so fun to be able to create a movable card so quickly!  The balloons are so easy to create (check out yesterday's blog for more info).  I used Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla, Bermuda Bay, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit for this card.  Birthday Basics is one of my favorite Designer Series Paper (as you may know from a previous post) and that is the paper I used here to decorate the front.
I did use a full card (5 1/2 x 8 1/4) and slipped the one end on top so that it didn't cut it... that makes it possible to fold it forward to have room to write.  (If that is confusing, please post a comment and I can email you a picture).  I used my new Remembering Your Birthday set to stamp the sentiment.  
The cupcake punch was one of the first punches I bought from Stampin' Up! and I still love it.  I used it here to add some birthday love to the back.  Itty Bitty Banners with the matching framelits makes a nice greeting for the front of this card!  How do you like the way I adhered it?
Make sure to decorate the envelope as well!  Cycle Celebration is perfect for a birthday envelope.  I stamped the candle in the matching Bermuda Bay (I colored in the flame with Summer Starfruit) and the soda bottle in Raspberry Ripple.

Not sure if you want to order the Thinlits just yet?  Well they are a DEAL with all of these pieces!  The circle set has not only the card thinlit but 9 others to use to decorate the card (or other cards).
