Video – Balloon birthday

Hello everyone! I wanted to create a pretty simple card, but still having enough to it to be a fun card.

I did this by using different textures, colors, glitter, gloss and depth.
By using an off-white, textured paper for the top layer of the cloudy frame, it’s very different to the white plain cardstock that I used for the clouds.

By using a background paper that has some gloss and glitter and also adding some gloss on the unicorn horn, cake candles and decoration those are tied together.

The frame is a little thicker which already adds some depth, but also adding the balloons to that frame will add even more depth.

Everything together, makes a fun but simple card!

I didn’t color on screen this time, but here is a list of Copic colors I used:


  • W7 (hoofs)
  • W5 (dots)
  • W3 (body)
  • W1 (body)
  • R02 (cheeks)
  • RV17 (hair)
  • RV14 (hair)
  • RV13 (hair)
  • V17 (hair)
  • V15 (hair)
  • R20 (horn, inner ear)


  • RV17 (icing)
  • RV14 (icing)
  • E51 (cake)

  • E15 (candles, decoration)
  • R20 (flames)
