The 'balloons' on this card were cut using the Layering Egg Dies from the new MCT stamp set, Hello Spring (available this Thursday). I embossed the balloons with stamps from the same set and added some rhinestones for a little extra sparkle.
Tip: MCT stamps are quite pliable. You can create new 'shapes' of your stamps by sticking them onto your acrylic blocks differently. On this card, I took the straight stripes stamp and 'waved' it on my block to get the fun wavy lines on the teal balloon.
I faux-stitched the green card base for some added texture and popped the balloons, sentiment and number up for dimension. The number "1" was cut using the Mickey Font cartridge on my Cricut. The sentiment (MCT's Wow! So Many Candles) was embossed in white to really stand out.
The size of this card (4-1/8" square) allowed for the sentiment and balloons to 'hang over' the edge while still fitting in a standard A2 sized envelope.
