Birthday Card

My future daughter-in-law's birthday is December 13th, so I made this card for her.

The card base is an A2 size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) card made from Bazzill cardstock.  On the card front, the first layer is 4 x 5 1/4, the second layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. I used the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge for the mat that Hello Kitty is on.  The mat and shadow were cut using the oblong feature at 3 1/2 inches.  I used the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge to cut Hello Kitty at 3 1/4 inches.  All the patterned paper is from The Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza paper pack. The rest of the solid cardstock is Recollections. Since the "balloon strings" on the cut were so thin and broke, I used Queen & Co. twine for the balloon strings and then added a bow made from the twine to cover up the ends.  For the inside of the card, the layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The sentiment is from the CTMH Card Chatter - Birthday stamp set, and was stamped using the CTMH Archival Black Exclusive Ink Pad.
