Balloon Celebrations

Heya Stampers,

Today I am showing you a card we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class a couple of weeks ago.  I20170524_152841blog-inside am a little behind in posting our creations, but I am slowing getting there.

I wanted to create a Birthday Card which could be used for either a boy or girl & so went with the “Balloon Celebration” Stamp Set.  It has a matching Balloon Boutique Punch which makes life so much easier.  I also used the “Cherry on Top” DSP Stack (retired) along with a couple of 2015-2017 In-Colours which have since retired – Watermelon Wonder & Tip Top Taupe.

Because the front was so easy, I wanted to showcase that you could also do the inside a little different & it would be something the receiver would not be expecting when opening the card.  It is not what I had planned but after 20170524_142626blog-closeupseeing this card on Pinterest, I decided to go for it.  Meg called it a “Snowcone Pop-Up Card”.  Thank you so much for your photo instructions.

I’m quite happy with how the card turned out considering I wasn’t sure where I was going with it.  You could easily change the colours, DSP & Ribbon to current products & have yourself a completely different looking card.

If you click on the link above the photo, you will be able to download the instructions to create your own card.  They include all the supplies & measurement (metric & imperial).

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
