Balloons and sparkle - can't go too wrong with that combo. Here's a sparkly option for your next balloon card.
Tips and Techniques: This one is a great option for if you're in a hurry. So quick to just punch out a bunch of balloons in your favourite colours of glimmer paper. (Thanks Ann - I loved the one you made at class that inspired this card.) Stamp the strings and stick on your balloons - voila. All done. I found it easiest to arrange my balloons first then started from the top and adhere them one by one. I used the bow from Balloon Framelits to cut a sparkly bow. There is a bow stamp in the Balloon Celebration set you could use instead if you don't have that set of framelits. Or if you're very clever with ribbon you could add a lovely ribbon bow for a nice finishing touch. I'm all thumbs with ribbon so I love the 'zip it through the Big Shot' option.
I've used our lovely thick whisper white for the card base, and our regular whisper white for the section I've stamped on. The smoothness of the regular whisper white is great for stamping. I've been going through LOTS of the thick whisper white for the card bases. A little sturdier so your card will stand up well.
Have a sparkly day! See you soon for another dose of balloon inspiration.
