My youngest niece is turning 4 next month, so I thought I'd use these fun colors to make her birthday card. What little kid doesn't love red, yellow and green? I tried to go SUO for this card and nearly pulled it off! The tag die, the black twine and the Wink of Stella are the only things that aren't SUO on this card. Go me LOL.
I have to admit I quite like this card - it's CAS but still has a lot of interest. I used Jennifer McGuire's trick to get some dimension in the balloons by stamping once, then re-inking and rubbing off some of the ink before over-stamping.
The card base is Real Red which was scored on all four sides. Two PTI tags were cut - one from Daffodil Delight and one from Whisper White. The balloons were cut out and had some black twine stuck to the back of them. The number 4 was cut out of Real Red using the Bigz Typeset Alpha die. All three balloons and the number 4 were painted with Wink of Stella for a lovely subtle glittery look.
Thanks for looking.
