Happy Birthday Balloons Postcards

An online friend celebrated her 60th birthday in June and asked for us online friends to help her celebrate by sending her a birthday card. So I wanted to make her a handmade card and decided to make a fabric postcard using the Crafter's Edge Balloons die cuts. While I was at it I made a second postcard just to have on hand. 

I used batik fabric scraps for the balloons and I had a rubber stamp that says, Birthday Wishes, so stamped that at the bottom. The balloon strings were drawn on with a pigma pen. The background fabric was a confetti-looking fabric that went well with the balloons. Then I satin stitched the edges. I popped the postcard into an envelope because it had a long journey to Germany, and I wanted it to arrive clean. It did arrive safely and just before her birthday. I know she received over 100 cards too! 

It was so fast and easy to cut the balloons with the die cuts.

The back of both cards were stamped with a postcard stamp.
