[In the Details Video] Design Tips for Multi-Occasioned Cards by Nichol Spohr

Watch video below or on our YouTube Channel. wfc_20161111_babycongratscards_nicholspohr_1 I created both boy and girl versions of these baby balloons cards using the Balloon Messages Stamp Set & Dies and the Birthday Fishes Stamp Set & Dies. Both are the same design but I simply changed up the colors.   wfc_20161111_babycongratscards_nicholspohr_3 A bit of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen gives the balloons a nice shimmery shine while a bit of thin twine tied around the balloons gives them the perfect finishing touch. wfc_20161111_babycongratscards_nicholspohr_4 To keep the twine from coming undone in the mail, try sealing the knot with a bit of Glossy Accents. I used clear droplets for bubbles coming up from the fish balloon and added a scattering of iridescent star confetti to add interest to the background. wfc_20161111_babycongratscards_nicholspohr_2 The fishes eye is the perfect size to add a googly eye too for a fun, whimsical touch. I made the Congrats die cut greeting dimensional with a bit of fun foam. Thanks for stopping by!
