Hello crafty friends!!! Amy here today from Sharing New Love with a birthday card for the Daily Post. For today's card, I used the adorable lion from CDD, It's all about the zoo stamp set along with the Party dies with a twist. Here is the card I made:
Here's how I made my card:
The twist is, I created my own balloon stencils using the "Party Dies"on acetate. What's great about acetate is that you can use it over and over again and it's see through. Being see through is important, because it allows you to stencil in the balloons exactly where you want it to go. Isn't the balloons adorable stenciled in like that with distress ink?!
I added white gelly pen for accents on the balloon as well as drew in the lines for the strings. The sentiment is from "It's all about the zoo" stamp set. I stamped it with versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder How cute is this lion?! I colored him with distress ink, and fussy cut him out. I added a little party hat from the "Sweet wishes" stamp set.
Here is the final closeup. I added shadows underneath the lion to ground him. I hope you like this card and found the picture tutorial helpful. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I wish you all a wonderful day! CDD products I used:
