Welcome to the February Inspiration and Release Week!
I'm tickled that Lawn Fawn has released a pack of gorgeous Rainbow Cardstock! I used six colors on the cardstock with the awesome Party Balloons Dies and a Stitched Rectangle Frames Die for this simple balloon card. A bit of Distress Ink applied to each balloon gives a bit more interest to the balloons. A simple stamped greeting and a scattering of pretty gold confetti adds just enough to this fun card!
I die cut the balloons from Rainbow Cardstock colors using the Party Balloons Dies and applied Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks to the balloons. I die cut the balloon strings from the same colors of cardstock and die cut the balloon "highlight" pieces from smooth white cardstock, adhering those to several of the balloons.
I die cut smooth white cardstock and black Rainbow Cardstock using the largest Stitched Rectangle Frames Die. On the inside white panel I stamped a greeting with Black Licorice Ink using a combination of phrases from the Just For You Stamp Set and Mom + Me Stamp Set.
I adhered the balloons to the white panel and then adhered the balloon strings as shown. I trimmed any excess from the panel and then adhered it and the black frame to a side fold card base.
