Handmade Cards

Inspired by Pinterest #3

I’ve got a lot of pins on my Lawn Fawn Party Balloons board on Pinterest. My card was inspired by one of those pins – this card on the I’m in Haven blog.

Here is my version of the card:

How I made this card:

I chose some dark background paper, then some bright card for the balloons. After attaching some string to the balloons, I arranged them on the card. Some of the balloons I attached directly to the base. Others I raised with foam tape.

My heat embossing tools have really been worth getting so far. I love the look of embossed sentiments on a vellum strip. This sentiment is from the ‘Say It In Style’ stamp set by Clearly Besotted.

I wrapped the vellum strip around the panel and attached at the back. Then I attached the front panel to a card base.

Products used to make this card:

  • Lawn Fawn Party Balloons die set
  • Clearly Besotted ‘Say It In Style’ stamp set
  • WOW embossing powder
  • Versamark ink
  • Vellum
  • Various coloured card
  • Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique Twine
