I love to have a stash of cards handy in case I need one at the last minute and know I won’t have time to stop at the store.

This card was super easy and could work for just about anyone’s birthday!

The Mickey and Minnie balloons die cut worked great to cut this red mylar paper I had on hand. I knew I needed a bold paper so that it didn’t get lost visually with that bright polka-dot background paper. I think I accomplished this rather well! I swapped out the trailing balloon “strings” with black cardstock and used a tiny drop of adhesive to hold my real string bows in place.

I gave Minnie’s bow more dimension with foam mounting tape and used a small hole punch and white cardstock to create the dots on the bow, trimming the excess.

The card is finished off using small alphabet stickers for the sentiment.
