Bermuda Bay Birthday ~ from Stampin’ Up!

Black, White and Bermuda Bay – a lovely combination for this birthday card.  Black is not a color I naturally reach for but it does give a certain elegance to most things ~ I think this would have been a very elegant card…….. until I added the stamped balloons to make it a little more whimsical!

Once again I have used the Party Wishes stamp set along with the Its My Party Designer Series Paper.


 Base card:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Bermuda card, scored @ 4 1/4

Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Basic Black  card.

Layer 2: 5 x 2 1/4 DSP from the Its My Party Stack

5 x 1/2 strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper


  • Basic Black card cut with 2″ circle punch
  • Bermuda Bay cut with Brackets Label Punch
  • Whisper White  card cut with 1 3/8 circle punch

Ink ~ Bermuda Bay, Memento Tuxedo Black and Basic Gray (for the balloon strings)

The balloons and the little strings were stamped directly onto the black spotted DSP layer, and the ‘Make a Wish’ onto a scrap of Whisper White card.

I just love the 1/8 stitched satin ribbon in the Bermuda Bay – it just pulls everything together on this card.

 hope you enjoyed the card – let me know your thoughts below …………
