Balloon Adventures

March 2, 2017

I saw a sketch somewhere in my recent browsing of the internet which inspired me to start this card.  Somewhere along the way, it took on a life of it’s own and now looks nothing like the sketch I started with!

I embossed Whisper White card using the Confetti Embossing Folder and attached to scored and folded Bermuda Bay card.  I attached a strip of the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper to Bermuda Bay card and then to the card front.  I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Die to cut out the balloons from Early Espresso card and trimmed the frame away. 002 I cut the banner from Whisper White card and trimmed away the excess.   I stamped “party on” from the Balloon Adventures stamp set onto the banner and attached it over the Early Espresso piece. 003 Using the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Dies I cut balloons from Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron and Bermuda Bay card and attached them over the Early Espresso balloon cut out.  The panel is then attached to the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the balloon string image  onto the left hand side of Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the solid balloon image using So Saffron ink and stamped the polka dot balloon image over the top using Early Espresso ink.  I also added the bow to the top of the balloon string using Early Espresso ink.  All of these images are from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

Well, what do you think?  Considering this is nothing like what I imagined the card would look like, I love it.  What about you?
