Creating the 2 cards at once was easy. The balloons and "70th" are inlaid, so I used the numbers cut from one to fill in the other.
The white paper has a pearly finish to it. The black and gold are foil cardstock, by Tim Holtz.

The balloon die is from Simon Says Stamp -- the sentiment strip die is from MFT. I'm not sure who makes the number dies.
Thanks for taking a look. Hope you are having a Happy New Year!!
