Here's what you'll need:
Jubilee Balloons Duo Stamp
4x9.25" Scored Card (8x9.25 scored at 4")
3.75x9" Fuchsia Panel (All That Jazz)
3.25x8.5 Aqua Panel (Cruisin')
Cork Board and Paper Piercing Tool (push pin, in this case)
Black PITT Pen (or black marker
India Black and Lagoon CS® Inks
20" Black Waxed Linen Thread
Common Threads UM Greeting Stamp
Use the PITT Pen to outline the outside edges of the two balloons. (Don't spend a lot of time on this.)
Thread the waxed linen onto the needle and enter into the far left stitching hole, front to back, leaving a 2" tail. Stitch back up through the neighboring hole and tie the threads together to form a knot. Enter the left hole of the second balloon and return to the front from the nearest stitching hole. Tie the other ends of the thread together, leaving a long thread loop between the balloons, as shown.
Stamp your birthday greeting and nest the panel onto a second panel and card. Stand back, and smile!
