Hello to you all! I hope you're having a fabulously grand Tuesday. I am so far. It's been a crazy day at work (don't ya love computer, copier, printer and fax machines that crash - all on the same day?) but it's actually been a pretty good day anyway. I thought I'd take a break and share this quick birthday card I made.
For some reason, this picture looks blurry when I upload it. On my screen, it looks fine. That's odd! Anyway, I used Celebrations to cut the balloons. The paper is by American Crafts. I bought the paper on clearance and it's been sitting around for a while. I decided I needed to use it, so this is what I came up with. I don't normally use primary colors, but I liked it for a change.
If you look closely you'll see the balloons have patterns on them. I cut the blackout and the layer in the same color, so you can just barely see the patterns. I just glued them together and adhered them to the shadow, which I cut in white.
I used a stamp by Hero Arts and hand cut my banner. I added some white twine to the balloons and ran it behind the foam dots on the back of the banner.
I just added a strip of the patterned paper on the inside because I wanted to keep it simple. Nothing fancy today - Just a simple bright card!
