This card is something very simple for when I need something quickly, like the many times someone’s special day creeps up on me (oh my). I used the Stampin’ Up Balloon Adventure stamp set. I chose to use Real Red as my card base. I wanted the card to stand out, so I did everything in real red with the inside card done in Whisper White.
I first placed my greeting on the card where I wanted it to go. I, too, as Yami does, use the Misti tool to help me set up some of my cards so I can visualize exactly where everything will fall into place. Once I stamped the greeting in Real Red, I next just went around the card and randomly placed the little squiggle decorations. And, it’s okay to stamp off the side of the paper if you want. It is random and doesn’t need to be perfectly placed. I wanted to use cut out balloons, so I next used my Balloon Pop-Ups thinlits die cut for the Big Shot. Once those were cut, I took a small piece of thing burlap string and tied it around the base of the cut out balloons. I let it hang to the desire length and cut off any extra that was remaining. I used a glue dot to hold the strings together in the center and then with the same thinlits set, I just cut out a little red ribbon to attach to the strings. I then used my Tombow mono adhesive and attached the card together.
Again, here are the items I used:
Card base: 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
Inside layer: 5-1/4″ x 4″
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White
Stamp set: Balloon Adventures
Ink: Real Red
Thinlits Die Cut: Balloon Pop-Ups thinlits die
