Hey everyone! SimonSaysStamp's DieCember release went live today - lots of really cute dies are now available! It's a "non-typical" blog-hop for this release - basically SSS has links to all those that were able to play along in their blog post HERE <---click! You should go check it out and see what everyone else made with the new dies!
They sent me one and it arrived in the mail this afternoon - so I carved out a little time after supper tonight and made this card (while mulling over the ideas as I ate said supper and chatted with the kids LOL multitasking at it's finest). I did film the process but editing and uploading the video will have to come later - I literally don't have any time left now.
Anywho here's the card:
I used the new Happy Birthday die and had some fun with my Distress Inks and blended and spritzed away.
I die cut the balloons from white card stock and adhered them onto a white card stock panel that I then popped onto the card base with foam tape. As I was doing the balloons I thought it would be cute to add a bunch of sequins in similar colors so I did - LOVE! ;)
I finished off the inside with a sentiment from the SSS set linked below, and a die cut balloon that I hand drew the string onto just to "anchor" it to the inside of the card and that was it!
And here's the video - I was up late with Gavin last night so I used some of the time to finish editing the video - you can hear him in some of it along with some random thunks as he kept making a grab for the keyboard. He sat in my lap the whole time I was doing the voiceover so sorry if it's a little ramble and full of "um's" LOL! Keeping a 7 1/2 month old entertained while editing a video is an interesting process *wink*:
