Celebrate Today Friend Card

Card Closed
Card Opened
Today's card is one I created for Leadership Conference to swap with other demonstrators. I had the idea for this card on my mind for a few days. I knew that I wanted the balloon to look like a bunch of balloons once you opened the card. I just had to figure out how to execute my design with the card layout I had chosen. When it finally came together, I was thrilled with the end product and hope you are too. 

To create this card, cut and score the card stock like you normally would (4 -/2" x 11" and score at 5 1/2"). Add an additional score line to one of the sides of your card at 2 3/4". Then fold that part of your card base back and add some DSP. I stamped the balloons in Calypso Coral and Hello Honey on the inside of my card making sure that they went off the card stock a bit so they didn't overlap. You could overlap the balloons but you would need to do a bit of masking to make it look nice. 

After stamping the balloons inside the top of the card base, I stamped "birthday" in Coastal Cabana inside the Hello Honey balloon. Next, I stamped one balloon in Coastal Cabana on the same color card stock and cut it out using the Balloon Framelits. I attached it with some dimensionals on the top of my card base so that when I opened up the card you could see a balloon bunch. Last I stamped the greeting "to a great friend" in Calypso Coral and the tassel for the bottom of my balloon in Coastal Cabana on a Whisper White layer. I added some gray Washi tape then attached the layer to the Whisper White card base. 

Now it's your turn to give this fun card a try!
