The base of this card is kraft paper, one of my favorites when I don't want my card to look too girly. Presents and balloons were cut using the Cricut cartridge Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art. The banner was a ready-made embellishment from my stash. I added more jute along the side to coordinate with the banner. I actually did a little stitching around the edges of this one to help justify the purchase of my rarely-used mini sewing machine (I have a long way to go with that).
Thanks for looking!
