Once again, I had a card idea that I’ve been sitting on for a while and this week I finally got around to trying it out. I love how it turned out so much that this will be one of the cards featured in April’s Cards to Go kit (so if you want step-by-step instructions with photos or to have the supplies sent to you to make this card, make sure you sign up by April 5th)!
Well, I’ve loved how vellum looks when you run it through an embossing folder and the framelits make a perfect window, so I put them together and this came out:
This card also uses the Everyday Enchantment designer paper from the Sale-a-Bration catalog (last day to get it is today!!) and it shows that just because most of the designs look vintage, doesn’t mean you have to make a vintage card with it. Anyway, used the 2nd and 3rd smallest framelits to make my window and cut all the way through to the inside of my cardbase. Now, if I had been paying attention, I would have moved the dimensional on my balloon down a little bit… but oh well! :p
And finally, to add a bit of whimsy to my card, I punched out a couple of balloons with baker’s twine cords and attached them below my window.
It isn’t a super fancy card, but I think it has enough cool touches to make it a special card for a special person. Would you agree?
And, finally, my last reminder…..
