Have A Magical Day Card

June 3, 2020

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Lately I seem to be in a rainbow mode so I decided that my balloons would have a rainbow colour theme. I absolutely loved the results and loved all the burst of colours. Below you will find the steps to create your own rainbow of balloons card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”. Diecut The Cardstock with Stitched Rectangles and Frame It – Stitched Circles to create a window panel. If you don’t have the Frame It then use Fitted Circles. The only difference is that you won’t have a Stitched Circle along the frame.

Step 3 – Adhere any DIY background to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. I used Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper to create an ocean feel background.

Step 4 – Stamp Build Your Own Sentiments 1 using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the center bottom of the panel created from Step 2. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Octopus and Party Accessories (Balloons x6, Balloon Strings And Party Hat) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour in all the diecut pieces using Alcohol Markers. I used Spectrum Noir Classique Markers. Assemble all the pieces and adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue and Foam Tape. TIP: I placed all my assembled pieces loosely on my card front and when I was satisfied with the placement I used Glad Press’ N Seal to keep the placement. I adhered glue to the Balloons and Foam Tape to the Octopus on the back side then turned it around and placed back to the card front and removed the Glad Press’ N Seal.

This card can be used for several occasions by changing the colours and sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
