The blue balloons on this card were stamped on a piece of blue CS, then cut out with Paper Snips. Before adhering them to the card, I used colored pencils to add a shadow to the balloons. I glued them directly over the stamped balloon, on the white panel.
My daughter designed and created this card on Christmas eve...she said "I don't want to go to Rite Aid and spend $25 on cards" Smart girl! She is in college and working part time...trying to save her moola. She took this pic with the camera in her phone so it's not the best quality. She did a really nice job embossing and with the layout of the card. She made 5 different cards in 2 hours...not bad considering she is somewhat of a beginner. I enjoyed stamping right alone with her. I made 4 cards for my immediate family. I have a stack of cards I made to send this year but never was able to put the finishing touches on them....so yes, sadly, I didn't send cards again this year.
