Happy New Year’s Eve Everyone!!!
I am back again today to share with you my final card of 2019 because tomorrow starts off a brand new DECADE! Can you believe it?
For today’s card, I wanted to create something fun and festive to celebrate the occasion and Balloons came to mind, so that’s what I used for inspiration. This would also make a great Birthday card too!
To begin, I blended out some balloons along the edges of the card panel using the BIRTHDAY BALLOONS DUO STENCIL and BLENDER BRUSHES. I worked my way down the panel in somewhat of rainbow order. See the list of Distress Oxide inks used in the supply list below.
I then die cut the panel using the frame from the DARLING RIBBON & FRAMES set.
Next, I die cut the balloons for the card front using the DOTTED BALLOONS DIES and the SHAKER BALLOON DIE using Bristol paper that I also ink blended out with the BLENDER BRUSHES. I also die cut the little bow using gold foil paper to add to the largest balloon later.
Before adhering and popping the balloons onto the card front I stamped out a few sentiments using the HOLIDAY VILLAGE stamp set and the number candles from KOBI THE BIRTHDAY BEAR stamp set. I colored the flames in using Copic markers and then colored in the candles with a gold gelly roll pen.
I hope my last card of 2019 inspired you today. On behalf of myself and the Studio Katia Team, I wanted to wish you all a very Happy New Year and may 2020 be kind to you all! Stay safe tonight, especially if you are going to be partying in the craft room 😅
Thank you for stopping by and until next YEAR… Happy Crafting 👋
