Birthday Boy

I haven't been making cards for some time.  I was motivated to begin again because my brother will soon turn 95.  I've been making cards for his birthday for many years, so I couldn't stop now.  I used a card base that I made a few months ago and embellished it.

The card was made with watercolors and I added the balloon stickers.  I mounted the balloons onto cardstock, then popped them up on dimensional tape.  I placed the gold embroidery floss between cardstock and dimensional tape, then tied a knot and glued it down with liquid adhesive.

  1. Hi Velda. I love the idea of using gold embroidery floss for the balloon strings. Very pretty! Have a great day!
