Red Birthday Balloons 08358
Since anything goes and I always need a ton of birthday cards for March (just around the corner!), I used this fabulous new Birthday die which happens to go perfectly w/ the Happy die & the Reverse Balloon die (I used some of the positive balloons cuts) I already have. I die cut the red stripe layer & the white topper & my first thought was to split the white panel in two & add the Birthday in the middle. Then after die cutting the Birthday, I liked how it looked left with the upper portion of the white but with the lower section removed, so I left it. I added a couple of piece of card stock behind it to elevate it a bit from the red stripe paper. I die cut some of the balloons out of the red stripe & added them w/ some of the confetti & added them next to the double stacked Happy.

Here’s a look at the inside, continuing w/ the die cuts.
