Birthday Balloons

CASology are celebrating their 5th Anniversary this week with a Balloon Blog Hop, so why don't you hop over to their blog to join in the fun!  

The dies are all from a Trimcraft set of dies, 'Birthday Party'.   I die cut the banner three times, attached the pink one to a piece of a double sided adhesive sheet and inlaid the letters from the two other die cuts.  I wanted to balloons to shine, but my bottle Glossy Accents was running low.   I had a light bulb moment and attached a piece of clear sticky back plastic the snippets of card, before dies cutting the balloons.  The shine on the balloons doesn't show up in the photograph, but look fine IRL.  The balloon dies come with 'string' as part of the die cut, but I snipped it off and added some yellow crochet cotton.  (One day I will get round to learning how to crochet! LOL!)  The balloons and banner were attached with foam pads to add dimension.  I added three drops of Nuvo Glow Drops to the corner.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  25. A very happy card, I love the colours against the white. Crochet is fab, my mom taught me as a little girl, it always amazes me how fast it grows, but it is a little addictive, once you start you want to continue. Hope you manage to give it a go sometime Liz x
