A few weeks ago it was my dear friend Jacoline's birthday. I surprised her with this card.
I used a lot of product on this card so I hope I got it right when I wrote them all down. I started with a base of Rose Red. To that I added a layer of Whisper White that was first run through the Big Shot with the Tim Holtz Alterations Brick folder that had Basic Gray Ink brayered on. The clouds were cut with a die cut using Marina Mist and daubed with White Craft Ink to give them a more cloudy look. Two of them where adhered with mounting tape. The balloons were also cut with a die cut that I added Gold Cord to with little pieces of Scotch tape. Some of the balloons were also adhered with mounting tape to give them more dimension. To finish it off and to really hide the ends of the Gold Cord I ran a piece of Rose Red through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die, stamped Happy Birthday from the Curly Cute set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To give some bling Jewel Basic Rhinestones were added and also because I didn't measure the right amount of sticky tape and you could see it so I decided to hide it. Sshhhhh, don't tell Jacoline I did that :)
Regina, your mission this week, should you choose to accept it, is to make balloons. You can stamp them, die cut them, hand draw them, any which way you see fit. The only criteria is that it makes you giggle somewhere along the way. Have fun!!!
See Ya Next Week!
