Happy Friday everyone. I am excited to share with you today a birthday card made for my mother-in-law. I have shared in the past that she loves the color red. This card isn't totally red, but I managed to incorporate some red into it. The card is also part of the latest die cut challenge over at Stuck on You Sketches. Our theme was "You've Got Mail." That's why the card has an envelope with balloons coming out of it. I hope you'll stop by and see what the other wonderful designers came up with, and we'd love for you to play along! Here is a link to the challenge. And, here are the details of the card:
Envelope: Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge cut at 2" (page 67 of handbook). I used Bazzill Dotted Swiss card stock for the envelope.
Label behind envelope: Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 4" (page 41 of handbook). I then embossed the label and added a shadow.
Balloons: George Cricut cartridge cut at 1" (and added shadow). I used memory thread for the strings on the balloons.
The patterned papers are Doodlebug Designs (I think) and My Mind's Eye.
The sentiment was computer generated and punched with a 1 1/4" circle, a 1 1/2" circle, and a 2" scalloped circle punch
The rhinestones are from Kaisercraft.
I also added a yellow border using a Fiskars border punch.
Thanks for your comments. Be inspired!
