Hello and welcome to today’s card, which started out wondering how I was going to use this piece of 3” x 4 ½” piece of Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper. Since I haven’t created with this DSP in a while, I thought it was time to bring it back out and look at what I have left to use, which is a lot sadly….but this card is very easy to make and I chose to use Lemon Lime Twist as my “pop of color”!
The base layer is Gray Granite cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Striped Scallops TIEF:
The next layer is this design from the Broadway Bound DSP, cut at 3” x 4 ½”:
The rest of the items that you will need for the front of the card:
-Enough Black Satin Ribbon to wrap around the base layer
-The Celebrate Thinlit Die to cut out of Black Foil Sheet and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock
-The You Thinlit Die to cut out of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock
-Use the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch out the small balloon in Black Foil Sheet and the large balloon in Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. Tie Whisper White Baker’s Twine to the Black Foil balloon and Basic Black Baker’s Twine for the Lemon Lime Twist balloon:
First place your satin ribbon around the middle of the embossed base layer (adhering the end pieces to the back) and then adhere the DSP on top:
Adhere the celebrate cut out in foil on top of the cardstock piece using your Fine Tip Glue Pen and then adhere to the DSP. The You is adhered with Mini Dimensionals:
The balloons are adhered with dimensionals and then this completed piece is adhered to a Back Black cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is from the Picture Perfect stamp set in Memento ink and the background is from the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set in Gray Granite and Lemon Lime Twist inks:
Fun and easy card to make, right?? This card is based in neutral colors, so you could really use any color for your “pop of color”! Don’t forget, to get your “balloon string” to twirl, use your bone folder, just like you would with ribbon and the edge of your scissors!
Wondering what specials are going on?? Current specials are listed to the right!!
