Here's a Z-fold card you'll have fun sending to someone special.  I selected the Silly Goose Stamp Set from the January- April 2023 Mini Catalog, and paired it with a couple of Petal Pink prints from the Design A Daydream Host 12" X 12" Paper Pack to use on my card.  Then created a Z-fold card with a band to showcase the Stilly Goose Stamp Set.  I layered the two geese in front over the goose in back so it looks like the geese in front are holding the balloon until the card is opened.  I selected one of the sentiments from the Silly Goose stamp set, die cut a stitched circle for my sentiment and stamped the sentiment in Calypso Corral.  I added a metallic bow and the card was complete.   You'll love creating with these wonderful papers and stamps.

The basecard for today's card is Petal Pink Cardstock.  Then, a layer of one of the prints from the Design A Daydream 12" X 12" Host Designer Series Paper Pack.  Then I created a spacer band in Petal Pink and covered it with another coordinating print from the Design A Daydream Host Designer Series Paper Pack.

Next, I stamped images from the Silly Goose Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and fussy cut them to use on the band and on the inside of the card.  I used a Petal Pink Blends to color the balloon.    

Handmade Greeting Card using Stampin' Up! Silly Goose Stamp Set

I used the Stylish Shape Dies to die cut a stitched circle to use as my sentiment label.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the Silly Goose Stamp set onto the circle, and added a bow to complete my card.  You can add a piece of Basic white to the back side of the card to write a note.
