Today’s card is for the Less is More: Balloons challenge.
Here is my card:
I started this card because I need a card for my boss – his birthday is Monday. I work at a school and our school colors and blue and silver. I tried to go that way, but once I settled on the fabulous glitter paper, I just couldn’t make it masculine enough for my tastes. I love this glitter paper – the glitter isn’t too chunky and it has such a wonderful sparkle to it.
Originally the card had 3 different colored blue balloons. Once I decided that it wasn’t for my boss, I tossed those aside and picked two lighter colors – a blue and a purple. I used plain vellum and colored them with distress inks. I liked the vellum because seeing though the die cuts is more realistic for balloons.
Of course adhering vellum is why I hardly ever use it! These balloons are hanging on by the skin of their teeth! The blue balloon has a bit of glue where the purple one overlaps. The purple balloon is stuck down where it overlaps the glitter.
Thanks for taking a peek!
