Hi friends! Father's Day is the first Sunday in September here in New Zealand, so I've been thinking masculine cards lately. This one is for my Father-in-law. I wanted to do something a little different, so I went for a shaker element.
I'm so honored to be a Catered Crop Recipe Swap winner last week, and I'm playing along with the current challenge - Map It!
I've used a gorgeous map paper for my card background.
The hot air balloon from Up, Up and Away by Verve was stamped, pieced, and I added some sequins behind acetate for the shaker. The sentiment is from Strong Anchor and I've used my beloved Pennant Trim die. I used Black Enamel paint around the edges of the balloon.
The colour combo comes from Dynamic Duos 66 and I used the fun sketch from Retro Sketches 77 which had a cool cut out element.
Here's the inside of my card...
They are faint in the photo, but I stamped some clouds from Up, Up and Away in a light blue ink on the inside panel and repeated the sentiment.
Thanks for coming to visit today! *hugs*
