Cards to Die For

Hello and Welcome!

This week I decided to raid my die-cuts and make some cards.

This balloon birthday card was a bit tricky as to how to put the twine
on the card as the balloon strings,
so I figured I would take some pictures to give you a bit of an idea
to help you out in case you would like to try.

So first I die cut a rainbow of balloons in three different sizes.

Then I cut the white cardstock for the front of the card
along with the black card base.

I place a piece of scor-tape where I want the twine to be adhered to.

But on the big balloon dies, I used my atg gun on the top,
so that I could play a bit with the placement of the dies
to make sure they line up well.

I then took the paper off the scor-tape to start putting the twine on the card.

I made sure I already had all six pieces of twine ready to go.

I then placed each piece of twine behind each balloon,
then pressed the balloon down on the twine.

I then took the twine and brought them together on the other side.

I then turned over the card and placed a piece of tape
to adhere all of the twine down.

I then cut the twine down a bit.

Now I place the next row of balloon dies.

All the way across.

Same with the third row of balloon dies.

I stamped 'happy' and 'birthday' on the card.

I then took my white gel pen and made highlights on each balloon.

I placed foam tape on the back.

Then adhered it to the black card base.

Here's the stamps I placed inside...continuing with the balloon theme.

Next I die cut a bunch of hearts.

I took a white card...

And cut an inch and a half off the top flap.

Then arranged and adhered the hearts along the cut.

Then stamped I love you with a heart.

I even used one of the hearts on the inside of the card
along with some stamping as well.

These were a lot of fun and simple to make.
I hope you try them out as well!
