Hello there, I hope you had a lovely weekend. I am back with another male orientated birthday card. Although, it could be used for females too I think. I thought it would be fun to try out the Hero Arts Ombre Inks on a balloon. I think it adds some interest to an otherwise plain and simple card.
I first took a panel of white cardstock and cut the edge at a diagonal, a la Maile Belles. I then stamped the balloon slightly overlapping the edge of the cardstock. This is from the Simon Says Stamp Celebrate stamp set and I stamped it using the Pool to Navy Ombre ink. I stamped the balloon string in SSS Fog ink below (Sorry it is a little difficult to see in the photo!).
I then stamped the sentiment, from the Clearly Besotted Many Mini Messages set in black ink beside the balloon. I took a white A2 card base and added a strip of black cardstock to it where the panel would be placed over the top. The panel was adhered with foam tape. I then finished ff with a couple of enamel dots.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it.
Thanks so much for visiting me today. I really do appreciate it. I should have a few more male cards in the box now. So hopefully that means I can go back to making pretty butterfly cards now! ;) Have a great day!
