Hello and welcome everyone~ I am happily back at The Shabby Tea Room! My very first design team position was with this wonderfully shabby chic, romantic, vintage challenge blog and I am delighted to return. This week’s challenge #219 is hosted by Linda and the name is ‘Flowers & Balloons’. She has asked that we create a card or project inspired by the photo below and be sure to use flowers and/or balloons!…
Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo, a site with digital stamps for paper crafters. I am using ‘Balloons’ in my card…
I printed the balloon image onto the checked paper and printed it again onto white card stock. After using Copics to color the balloon, I used a paper piecing technique and fussy cut them before adhering them onto the checked paper image…
The sentiment and the scrolled tag that surround it are both from the ‘Best Wishes’ stamp set by Paper Sweeties. I layered on embellishments, as this is meant to be a party on paper! I really like that this card could be used for either a birthday or a congratulatory occasion!
Because this card is 6″ square, I used a separate piece to form the inside of the card. It is very simply embellished by the contrasting punched edge that makes the attachment from front to back panel…
I thought it was fun to switch up the colors inside and to add the sentiment onto the light blue card stock. S0 now, think about balloons and flowers, the gorgeous colors of the inspiration photo and join us at The Shabby Tea Room for some fun with this challenge!
