When I first saw the stamp set called So Much Happy, it made me happy because it has lots of balloons. Who doesn’t like balloons? What really made me very happy was looking at the matching dies called Happy Dies! One of the dies cuts out the large “happy” border and I just love it. It is large and it is different so I knew I would get it right away. There are 15 stamps in the set and 11 dies.
To make this card I first cut out the word happy in Gray Granite cardstock. Then I ran each end of it through my die cutting machine using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I did it this way because I didn’t want the actual word to be embossed. I backed the word with a piece of the 6″ x 6″ 2020/2022 InColor Designer Series Paper in Bumblebee and layered that on top of a Bumblebee card base. Then I cut out the banner and the balloons using the same DSP and the balloon strings in the matching cardstock colors. Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink onto Bumblebee cardstock and cut it out using a die from Ornate Frames.
By the way, if you purchase the So Much Happy stamp set with the Happy Dies in a bundle you can save 10%.

Susan, this is such a great card. Perfect masculine card, too
I think it was Pooh who said “no one can be un-cheered by a balloon”! Wise ol’ bear! 😉 I love how you embossed top & bottom, but left the word. Makes it stand out even more!
This is a lot of happy! I love the balloons and the banners and the wonderful DSP. I especially like the “partially embossed” front. Great card, Susan!
