Birthday is in the Air
by Trina Pham

Hello everyone.  This is Trina and I am sharing a CAS birthday card today made with products from the Valentine’s Collection.  


This card came about because I really wanted to use the bike from Neighborhood Heart Frame.  The bike was die cut from X-press It cardstock and coloured in with Copics.  The bike was a bit flimsy, so a second bike was die cut from black cardstock and adhered behind.  The heart balloons were also die cut from X-press It cardstock using a heart die from Have a Heart and coloured in with Copics.  


The sentiment from Best Life Typewriter stamp set was white heat embossed on a black strip.  The sky background was created by sponging Tumled Glass and Salty Ocean distress inks over a cloud border stencil on an A2 sized white panel.  Drew in the balloon strings with a ruler and black Copic multiliner, then assembled the card.  Crystal glaze was added to the balloons for some shine and dimension.  Once dry, white highlights were added with a white gel pen to finish.


That does it for me.  Happy Valentine’s Eve.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day.







Great card, Trina. I really like your style!

fun card Trina, love the idea of the bike floating away with the balloons :)

I absolutely love all your little details using wonderful MB dies and colored with your copics. Your floating die cut bike into the clouds was such a clever creative design, my friend. Sweet CAS design using the challenge color combo. TFS Trina. Hugs..Nancy

Clever use of the die cuts and what a wonderful little scene. Marvellous colouring of those 3D looking balloons and love the clouds too. Fabulous card Trina x

Your designs are always so creative and fun, Trina! LOVE the cloud background and your sweet bike floating with the balloons. Adorable!

I feel my head in the clouds on my birthday....not only the sunshine yellow balloons but cuz I pedaled so fast!
Yes this adorable card gives a story! Great imagine! Thank u for the inspiration!

Fantastic use of the bicycle die and the heart die, Trina! The heart balloons are super shiny (white gel pen highlights over the crystal glaze!!), the black & yellow bicycle is so cool, and the stenciled clouds are so pretty. Most of all, I love this well-thought design!
