A fairly quick and easy card that could work for both sexes! I first die cut the balloon coverplate from PTI from white cardstock. Then, I die cut various sized balloons from an Avery Elle die set. I sponged Hawaiian Shores ink (PTI) onto the largest and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Citron onto the smaller two balloons. I then put a generous amount of clear Wink of Stella on the balloons for some added shine! You can somewhat see the sparkle in the close-up below.
then, I stamped and heat embossed the streamers from a Mama Elephant set and colored them in with my Copics. I adhered the balloons to the panel and backed it with a black card front. I then die cut from black cardstock 3 times the "happy" and layered them for extra depth. Then using the stitched banner I stamped the companion sentiment. I finished it off with some baker's twine and I'm done!
