Eeeeee! This card just makes me so excited I have to scream! PINK! BLING! RIBBON! SPONGE DAUBERS!!! I love it!!! You could always change up the color to your favorite color/s or even for a more masculine card! I’m super excited about the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch (Bundle and Save 15%)!
I started with a Melon Mambo card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I stamped the balloon strings and greeting in Basic Black. Then I stamped one large and one small balloon outline onto Melon Mambo cardstock and punched them out. I also punched out one large and one small balloon in Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. You will want to adhere the balloons from the bottom up (shortest strings first)! I did half of them directly to the cardstock and the other half with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Then I brushed the edges of the cardstock with Melon Mambo and a Sponge Dauber and added it to the card base. For the bow, I used Melon Mambo Cotton Ribbon and used the Fork Bow Technique! You can check out the video tutorial on that here! I adhered the bow to the card with a Mini Glue Dot! Perfect!!!
TIP: So you might notice a bit of an outline of a balloon on the glimmer paper….DON’T DO IT! I added the balloon border to the Melon Mambo balloons and I liked how it really defined the balloon so I thought I would do the same with the Glimmer Paper. It didn’t dry and then smeared and got all over my fingers/project. I guess it eventually dried but I wouldn’t recommend doing it. 🙂 That’s what I’m here for….to make the mistakes and pass along the tips!
