Hi everyone! I'm here today with a fun and springy slimline birthday card on the Dies R Us blog! I have to say that I was originally going to make this card is more jewel tones, but then we got snow in April and I was like, SPRING! I made the focal layer of my card out of scraps, believe it or not.
You can see where I wrinkled the tape on the end, but it won't matter because the whole thing will be covered in cardstock and then die cut. I feel like die cutting helps to push the paper into the tape.
So these balloons were a last minute addition. I forgot to take a photo of the die cutting but I used the Lawn Fawn Outside In Balloons die set for these. I used the smallest balloon and both strings, then added the largest bow. I didn't put Scor Tape on the back of the balloons because I wasn't sure if I was going to pop any of them up with foam tape or not, but I did put it on the rose gold foil I used for the strings and bow. Made adhering those teeny tiny strings a breeze.
I hope this inspires you to dig through your scraps and see what kind of backgrounds you can create. Have a crafty day! --Lisa
