When my image was done I used a Nestie Square die to cut the image out but I left some of the balloons to extend over the edge. Black Glaze pen was used to brighten up the black parts...I really think this helps make them pop. I backed the panel up with black Bazzil cardstock. The banner is MFT Fishtail flags which I cut with red Bazzil cardstock and topped with black brads. I attached all this to October Afternoon Sidewalk red stripped design paper. Pretty easy. Finished card is 5x7.
For the inside I stamped an MFT sentiment along with the number "2" I cut using my Slice machine (haven't used that in forever!) I then placed them on a panel I cut using another Nestie. Check it out...
Phew...this is late but I like the way it came out. Now I have to make one for nephew #2 and hopefully his will be early to offset the one I sent late. Goal is to finish that this week too. Let's see if I can stick to that.
Enjoy your week!
