I shared with all of you my new year's resolution: To send a birthday card to everyone in my family
I shared my first card here, for my Aunt Dawn. And today I am showing you the card I did for my cousin Manny.
I am going to be the Guest Designer at For Fun Challenges on Wednesday!!!! Come back on then to see the card for my cousin's husband Tim.
I used My Mind's Eye: Fly a Kite 6x6 paper pack.
I thought it would look great for a teenage boy.
I used my new stamp from Unity. I love this balloon.
I paper pieced it together. Stamp on white and cut out the image leaving a little around the edge. Stamp the image on orange and cut out just the top of the balloon. Glue on top of the white piece. Stamp the image on striped patter, circle pattern and yellow paper. cut out the 5 middle pieces of the balloon and glue them on top of the orange. I LOVE the way it turned out!
Manny's favorite color is yellow so I knew I had to get it in there somewhere. Since there was no yellow in the pattern papers, it didn't look right when I tried to make the card yellow.
So I cut a star (Plaintin Schoolbook) that I added yellow flock to and a cute yellow button. I wrapped some brown baker's twice around this square to give it a little more interest. I inked the edge's of all the pattern papers in Quick Quotes "Green with Envy".
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Cooking With Cricut: Something New and a Cricut Cut
Little Red Wagon: Felt or Flocking
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges: Something New
Hope you like the card and remember to come back Wednesday to check out my Guest Designer card for For Fun Challenges!
