Hi Friends, My local card club had some challenges in May. They were "off the page" and a one layer card. I did the partial die cutting technique with my Balloons dies from Simon Says Stamp. There are many tutorials on You Tube for partial die cutting.
I partially cut the white card stock base on the right side then die cut the balloons again with Simple Stories (the Mickey Mouse one) patterned paper and layered them. I was going for a masculine look. I then stamped a SSS birthday balloons sentiment on the largest balloon. Some bakers twine and SC wood veneer stars finish it off. I'm submitting to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge -Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday -Anything Goes
Crafters Cafe Blog Challenge-118 -One for the boys
Then I masked the outside of the square with post it notes and spritzed it with green glimmer mist. A few clear sequins are added at the end. Oh, and some iridescent white twine was tied onto the top fold. Clean and simple. Oh by the way, this card is the 5th generation! I had quite a learning curve!
Take care until next time!
