Anyway, I am back. :-) I'm hoping to spend some time crafting this week to get starting on a few scrapbook pages and cards. I also have an afternoon set aside with one of my good friends to get some scrapping done this weekend. Very excited for that!!
I needed a birthday card for my sister-in-law. I kept this one pretty simple and I'm please with how it turned out.
I cut the balloons from the Wrap it Up cartridge. Instead of cutting all the layers, I only cut out the layers with the basic balloon shapes (I had to hide a few cuts on my Gypsy). Then I took twine and glued it on the balloons for a fun pattern and texture. I cut off the balloon strings from the Cricut images and instead used twine to make the strings and tied a simple bow which I tacked on to my card using a glue dot.
I added a birthday sentiment on the inside to finish off the card. Like I said, it's pretty simple! Thanks for stopping by to take a look and I hope you're all having a great week!
