Love is in the Air


Deary me, I am still struggling to be consistent at coming up with good ideas for some cards!  I am totally lagging behind in the card class.  I have one card today that I made earlier.  It fits in with Day 7's theme of feeling good using white cardstock.  And I think I am going to add it to the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use scallops.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (MME)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Victorian Velvet Distress Ink; Copic markers
Stamps: Penny Black (...in the Air)
Other: Glossy Accents; Pink Glitter; Stampin' Up Scalloped Punch; dimensional foam tape

The back of the card is wider than the front, and I created a glittery edge by running a strip of double sided tape down the side and pouring glitter over it, and then adding a strip of MME designer paper along the inner edge. Here is another view of it open.


The balloon was cut out of the stamped image which has many balloons on it.  I stamped and clear embossed it on white cardstock and then restamped the inner heart with Victorian Velvet distress ink and covered that with glossy accents and a bit of glitter before adhering.  I then popped up the balloon with some dimensional foam tape.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!  It's gotten warm here again!  See you again soon hopefully.

Brenda, it is beautiful! I love your paper choices for the inside of the card. That is a sweet heart on the balloon :) I too am struggling to try to be creative - it's not as "SIMPLE" as it seems sometimes :)
