Every year in May and July I have the birthdays of my 2 nieces, now this hasn't really caused me a problem in previous years, but now one of them is about to turn 14 (going on 24) with attitude!! Now I know it would be easier to buy a card, as at this age the card is purely the vehicle to carry the birthday money in. The routine is to rip open envelope, open card, count money (I need to make sure that there is just enough in it to avoid the scathing look of "is that all"?), discard said card.
Now I won't be beaten so have still decided to make a card, as that's what I have always done!!
I have used stamp set #5 designed by Olga Heldwein from AALL & Create for my card. The actual image only has one balloon so I have repeat stamped, coloured and cut out the additional balloons adding a piece of black cotton to each one (now that was a labour of love) .
Each one was added using 3D gel glue.
Background was created using a cloud mask I cut myself and distress ink with some distress paint splatters.
The girl and the clouds were also added using 3D glue gel which gives the card a lot of dimension.
Birthday sentiment is from Rubber Dance.
I'm tempted to put no money in the card as it might get looked at if I don't lol.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by
