It's a Birthday Party Challenge
Once again I missed the last Card's in Envy challenge. I'm bummed but I won't let that deter me from continuing to try to make a card for each challenge. This Challenge is "It's a Birthday Party". Any birthday card A2 size and flat enough to be mailed with regular postage is eligible.
This is the card I made. It's pretty simple. The background was a 12x12 paper I bought on sale with the sole purpose of using for making cards one day and that day came! The sentiment and balloons are acrylic stamps by Hero Arts. The balloons was the hardest part of making this card. The balloons were together. I stamped them on white for a base then I stamped five more times using Versa Mark ink and embossing with clear powder to be able to see the color of the balloons. I then cut out each balloon and pieced it onto the white base I created and added twine for the balloon strings. I used foam tape behind each balloon to give dimension. I also used foam tape on the sentiment. Although cutting out the balloons was a bit tedious I like the way the card turned out!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
Have a good one and stay cool!
