Post#197 – Girl With Balloons Birthday Card
I have recently started using the card size of 4.5″x 5.75″ and I quite like it and plan to use this size often from now on…..especially for cards that I feel would otherwise have looked too full on a standard size card and might not justify the design….
The card base is a bright red one…and the top layer is made from watercolour paper that has been die cut from the largest stitched rectangle die….I then used peerless watercolours to create a light background for the card….
Once the top layer was dry I stamped all the balloons and strings on it…on a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the little girl and cut it out…I have used adhesive squares to adhere the image onto the card to give it a bit of dimension….
I then die cut the scripty word ‘happy birthday’ using a gold cardstock and placed it above the balloons…I have also added just a few golden star sequins on the balloons as embellishments…
Hope you liked this card…
