Hello, this is a birthday card I made for a friend's father who is turning 75!
I picked the colours from the DP, but it took 3 trys before I got the desired balloon look. I tried stamping the cs with the matching colour, but that didn't seem right, then I tried stamping the cs with versamark but alas, that wasn't it either! Then I stamped with the colour on white cs & waalaa, that was it!
I used the CB on the top layer, DP on the bottom. cut out the balloons & added twine to the backs. The center balloon is popped up on dimensions.
The sentiment is stamped in Choc. chip and I added a red eyelet to thread the balloons twine through & tied a knot.
I also used a ribbon slide for the first time! I like the look with the ends tied, I've seen it here on SCS a few times, so I had to try it!
