Balloon Cutouts with Patterns

Simon Says Stamp is having the Stamptember event. One of the items they had available was a stamp and die set call "Cue the Confetti." There are also stencils and stencil patterns that match the die cuts and stamps. For this card I decided to use the dies and the stencil patterns. I cut three of the largest oval balloons from white cardstock and then ink blended them. I then ink blended the patterns using a darker ink.

I also cut some balloon strings using the Waffle Flower Balloon Ties Die from black cardstock and adhered them to the bottom of each balloon with liquid glue. I love the balloon ties that come in the set and use them all the time. It was a purchase worth making. I drew a line at the base of the balloon with a black Pigma Micron Pen and then attached the string.

I cut down a quarter sheet of white cardstock using a stitched rectangle die and then dry embossed it with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday Embossing Folder. The yellow balloon was adhered to the embossed panel with liquid glue. The red balloon was adhered yellow balloon with liquid glue where they overlapped and then low loft foam tape was added to the back for dimension and interest to the balloons.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of black cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed white. It was cut down using sentiment banner die and then adhered at the bottom of the balloon with low loft foam tape.

I decided to add a little more black to the card and matted the embossed panel with black and then adhered it to a top folding A2 cardbase with dotliner adhesive.
