Today I am sharing a card that honestly I didn't think I would enjoy, but as it turns out I'm loving the end result! I loathe balloons and when I say loathe, I mean detest, despise, HATE (the four letter word my mother told me never to use) them. Everything about them makes me cringe. The texture, the smell, that horrible sound when you rub your fingers across them, and oh dear Lord, the God awful balloon popping. It sends my anxiety through the roof! But, these balloon animals with their oversized eyes are really quite fun (in paper form only!) and this would make for a great kid's birthday card. This is the October Monthly Card Kit release from RG Avenue called "Pop It."
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Sweet Cane cardstock. Using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle Dies by Gina Marie Designs, I cut the first layer from Neenah White Solar Smooth cardstock. I printed the Pop It digital stamp on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and colored in the balloons using Copic markers. I added some highlights to each colored image using a white gel pen. I ran the entire digital stamp through my Scan & Cut in order to die cut the colored images. I adhered linen thread behind the balloons before placing them on the card using 3M foam adhesive. I printed out the digital stamped sentiment and adhered it to the lower left corner using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the balloons for added sparkle.
