It’s Tuesday, which means there are a LOT of things happening today. The first is a NEW SKETCH CHALLENGE over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, and this ones adorable! I used it to create a sweet (tricked-out) birthday card for a dear friend of mine. I was so in love with this card it was hard to give it away, LOL!!
Plus keep an eye out for the RETIRED LIST coming out shortly… I will be posting that as soon as it arrives, AND there will be ALL NEW WEEKLY DEALS to check out too!! Lot’s to do today!!
I used LOTS of different things on this project, and they all helped the card turn out perfect! First I used the CELEBRATE TODAY stamp set and FRAMELITS to create the focal images. I used some bright cheery colors (Melon Mambo, Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and Coastal Cabana)
I made this card HUGE, so that I could make it fit a message gift certificate inside! LOL. I will make a quick video on how I did this exactly and share it later this week. I stamped the little star sparkled images inside each balloon and then used the LITTLE LETTERS THINLITS to cut out the word HAPPY from each balloon. To decorate the balloons I used pieces of 1/8″ TAFFETA RIBBON to match the colored balloons as close as possible.
I used those cut out letters to decorate the envelope front, I had to do something to cover up the business logo that was on there. I recycled their envelope for my HUGE card, 😉 I embellished the front with another balloon too, love them dots!
It turned out adorable, right?? I loved this project SOOOO much and I will be cranking out more of these too… they were SOOO easy and super fun to give. Of course everyone at the party OOoooed and Aaawwwwed over the card, they didn’t really pay attention to what was inside, bwahahahaha!!
