Balloons

I was planning on making my card for the Less is More challenge this week where the challenge is to mask or stencil, but didn't feel my card was clean and simple enough for the challenge...so will try again with another card.  This card, like the last card I posted, wasTarget inspired...this time by a gift bag...
 I used a Simon Says Stamp AND Penny Black balloon dies.  I die cut each color twice and layered for depth.  The background is made from sponging with a diy stencil made with a Papertrey Ink Chevron die and a piece of acetate(although the pic I'm showing is when I thought of making the card the "long" way instead of the tall way.  I made a second stencil that was die cut just like the die, for my card...just showing you what the acetate will look like)...

I added floss to each balloon and added an Avery Elle sentiment stamped with versamark/white embossed on vellum wrapped around the card and some enamel dots.
Hope you have a great weekend!! Hugs!! Lisa

    1. Hi Cathy! I actually put a tiny glue dot on top of the floss behind the balloon. That way, the glue dot will stick to the card, too. Hugs!! Lisa
