Hello and happy Tuesday! It is so nice to be back and sharing projects with you again. For my project today I want to share one way you can use your leftover scraps of cardstock to create a quick and super FUN kid's card. This technique is great for other card types too. Not just kid's card. Also, today's card was made for the Hug a Heart Card Drive. For the complete details about the card drive, you can see it on this page HERE on my blog or in my blog post HERE.
For supplies use in this project, please see the thumbnail at the end of this post, linked to the shop where I purchased them from. If an item is unavailable at the purchased shop, I will try my best to link to other shops that do carry it to save you time from searching around.
I started by creating my A2 (4.25"x5.50") base card first using the gina K. designs' Turquoise Sea heavyweight cardstock. Next I die cut out the cloud from the MFT Stitched Cloud Edges onto the gina K. designs' white layering cardstock and adhered that to the base card.
I combined leftover strips of cardstock from old projects with the Simon Says Stamp Nested Hearts wafer dies to create the rainbow heart balloon. Since this card is going to a young child, I thought it would be fun to add googly eyes to the balloon I couldn't stop there. I was having too much fun. So I adhere a small red heart on for the nose and piped in a smile with Ranger enamel accent - white. How CUTE is that!
The "Thinking of You" sentiment is from the Clearly Besotted Brushed Greetings II. I stamped it with the Lawn Fawn Black Licorice premium dye ink.
To complete the card, I drew on the string for the balloon with Copic multiliner pen, colored with Wink of Stella - red and pop a small pearl embellishment to the center of the bow.
One last look at the card.
I would like to support the following challenge with my heart balloon card entry: Word Art Wednesday (Anything Goes #264-265).
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your day with me. May you have a lovely rest of your week.
