Last post, I mentioned the necessity of juvenile cards in my collection. One of the cards I needed was for a teenage boy. I’ll admit that my creativity does not run far in that category, but here is what I came up with 🙂
For the image, I just wanted a single balloon. I considered drawing one, but opted for a stamped balloon instead. In a future post, we’ll cover a drawn balloon. I picked one of the first I saw in my library, because it was pretty simple. This stamp is from Stampin’ Up’s Birthday Bright set. This set is not available any longer, but can be found on eBay here.
I created my panels and card base with an assortment of Kraft, black and white panels. Half of those were measured and cut. The other half were die-cut using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles.
After stamping the image in black archival ink, I colored in the balloon with Chameleon’s Color Tone Pencils and then created the highlight with White Enamel Accents. I penned my sentiment with Posca’s White Paint Pen.
I assembled all my layers with an adhesive tape runner, except for the sentiment panel, which I popped up with Stampin’ Up Dimensionals. I finished off the card with Black Enamel Accents randomly dotted on the white balloon panel.
Have a great day!
