Creation Station: Celebrate Today!

Hello!  Welcome to another creative inspiration journey with the Creation Station!  This week we are here to inspire you with the Celebrate Today set, and all things birthday!

This ties in perfect with my day!  Today we are celebrating my son, Will's 9th Birthday!!!  We actually celebrated last night with family!  Today will just be us, but we'll make it special!

But, for now.....let me show you what I've created for you today.

I wanted a card where the balloons look like they are floating in air, so I went with a card base made out of a window sheet.  I started by placing the balloons on the front where I wanted them.  

The problem with creating a card on a window sheet, is that you don't have a place to write on the inside.....Problem solved:

I inlaid the balloons so that they were flat, and this created a panel that I could stamp an interior sentiment (from Hooray It's Your Day) and it also gave me room to write.  I also did this to cover up the back side of the balloons that are on the front of the card.  (I didn't want the glue and dimensionals to show), then I repeated this again on the back of card:

 All of these extra balloons line up with each other so that when the card is closed, you only see the balloons on the front of the card!  

Clever, eh?

To be even more inspired, continue on the Creation Station Journey to see what the other talented members have in store for you!
