Celebrate Balloons

  Just a quick Celebrate Today card to share.  A few weeks ago when I was designing projects for my monthly class I was loving this color combination but set this project aside as it was a lot of changing colors for 20 people to do with one stamp!

  The background was stamped with the balloon stamp in Strawberry Slush, So Saffron and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I did full strength as well as stamped off once images.  That gives a nice depth to the design.


  After creating the background I heat embossed the word "Celebrate" in white onto vellum and then cut it out with the Balloon Framelit.  I very carefully used Tombow 2 Way glue and applied the glue to the back of the vellum by using the word to guide me.  If you aren't heavy handed the glue won't spread out too much but will still be plenty to keep the vellum stuck down.

  I added a few strips of the gold from the gold baker's twine and a white baker's twine bow.  Using the same Tombow 2 Way glue I scattered a few gold sequins around to add to the celebration feel of the card.

  Don't forget that you save 15% by buying the Celebrate Today stamp set and Balloon Framelits together!  Gotta love savings!  To order Click on the Shop now button on my sidebar ------>
