Hi Hoppers and Stampers! Our theme this month is "B" projects. I actually picked 4 "b's" to incorporate into this card. Let me explain...
My grandson is turning ten years old on July 2, so I thought I'd make him a Birthday card. He just made the Baseball All Star Team, for which I am over the moon proud! Balloons are appropriate for any celebration. And Blue ~ our new Dapper Denim Blue is the base of my card and 3 of the balloons.
Here's a closer look at the textures. First I stamped the open star from the Balloons Celebration stamp set, Dapper Denim ink on Dapper Denim cardstock. Then I embossed a white panel with the Lucky Stars Textured Embossing Folder.
I punched the balloons with the Balloon Bouquet Punch from a variety of papers ~ Real Red and Dapper Denim cardstock, Real Red prints from the Brights DSP Stack, and Whisper White. I stamped off the Dapper Denim ink to create a lighter shade, then stamped the stars into it using full strength Dapper Denim.
For the inside, I created a personal message on my computer, then punched another balloon from Real Red cardstock and decorated the string with little hearts.
Enjoy the remainder of the Blog Hop! A list of the supplies I used on this card will appear at the end of the post. The pictures of supplies are linked directly to my online store, so if you see something you would like to order, it's just a click away!
