Celebrate You Birthday Boy Card + Learn How to Make a Pom-Pom With a Fork + Distress Ink For Sale

Hello there! Today I have another card for you that I CASE’d myself of from this blog post that I wrote last week. As I was making the card on the left, the idea popped into my head of turning this into a very fun boy birthday card with the pom-pom. Two cards, same stamp set, same sketch, same consumables, yet two distinctly different cards. This really helped me jump out of my box a bit and I’m looking at my stamp sets and dies in other ways now that I normally wouldn’t.

 

Here’s a closeup of that adorable pom-pom. They’re not hard to make at all. If I were to do this all over again, I think I might use a thinner, but strong, center tie to get a fuller and fluffier pom-pom. I think the thick twine prevented me from achieving the completely seamless line I was going after. In the end, it all worked out just fine.

I ended up finding a new package of the silver clips, which happened to be right behind me, and I was thrilled over that little happy surprise. I’ve been destashing lately and have a new video up of Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads. Back to my card…with this one, I used the same silver sequins, but I added orange sequins on top for a little burst of color.

After I adhered the google eyes, I found another pack that had orange and black pupils. I’m glad that I stuck with the plain eyes. I put the orange eyes up to the birthday hat and the eyes disappeared into the hat.

I used a retired large white library clip and attached some new black and silver mini sequins to stay within my color scheme keeping everything well-coordinated, but not too cheesy.

Below is a video I made for you as to how I made the pom-pom and card. I hope that you enjoy it!
