Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme. This month the theme is Welcome! We will design our cards using this theme of NEW Annual Catalog products!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Lemon Lolly cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Lost Lagoon cardstock was embossed with the polka dot Basics 3D embossing folder and adhered on front.
- A 1-1/4 x 4 strip of Bright & Beautiful Designer Paper was added across the front.
- The large balloon cluster was cut with the Beautiful Balloons Dies from Bright & Beautiful DSP. It was added to the top of a 2-3/4 x 4-1/4 piece of Basic White cardstock.
- The strings were stamped with Lemon Lolly Ink under the balloons. Yay You was stamped with Memento Black Ink.
- The star was cut with the Beautiful Ballons Dies from Lemon Lolly cardstock and added to the balloon.
- Some yellow Adhesive Backed Solid Gems were added to the balloons.
- The silver Simply Elegant Trim was tied in a bow and added to the balloon with a Mini Glue Dot.
The dies did all the work on this card with just a little stamping! Make sure to check out Mary’s Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary!
