Hello, and welcome back! I'm here with a birthday card for one of my favorite challenge blogs, TGIF Challenges. They have a remix challenge once a month, and the idea is to take two of the challenges from that month, and mix them together.
I used their color combo and sketch challenge from this month.
And, here is my card! I've been wanting to play around with some shaker cards and needed a birthday card for a friend. So, I made a balloon shaker using the Balloon Framelits Dies with a circle die to cut out the center of the balloon. I made the layers to give the balloon depth using three Vanilla Coasterboard cut pieces glued together. The balloon outline is out of Basic Gray Cardstock.
I used a retired mask to sponge the Daffodil Delight rays onto Thick Whisper White Cardstock. I used the Celebrate Today Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the bottom layer of the balloon, which is also stamped around the edges of the Pool Party card base, and to stamp the greeting with. The balloon is filled with some dark gray sequins (leftover from a Paper Pumpkin Kit), some aqua fine glitter and yellow chunky glitter. The balloon is also tied with a piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine. The greeting is stamped onto Vellum Cardstock, and hand cut into a banner.
I even decorated the inside of the card! I think my friend will love this card.
Well, that's all for today! If you have some extra time, go check out the my card and vote for me as a finalist in the TGIF Challenges Throwdown Challenge! Thanks for stopping by.
