MFTWSC247 - Happy Birthday!
This is my card for this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.
I have to admit that all the Guest Designer activity this month has kept me busy with new-new products and that has meant that many of my old-new products (from July and August) have not yet seen any ink!
The balloon is cut out of red acetate and inlaid into the edge of the white panel. I actually had the idea to use the acetate as a shiny, vinyl-looking balloon for this card, but got 'stuck' (ironically), when I couldn't figure out how to adhere it to the card. My good friend Natasha helped me out with a sheet of two-sided adhesive and I love how you can see through the acetate where it pops over the edge of the card. It will still fit into a 4.25x5.5 envelope because the card base is a 4.25 square.
Rather than sequins, I cut 3 little stars out of scraps of the acetate and adhered them the same way, to add a little more colour.
