- Make card base for a 4” x 4” card from white cardstock.
- Cut 3” x 4” white cardstock panel and 4” x 4” patterned paper panel; layer and adhere to card.
- Stamp balloons and sentiment on white panel.
- Draw circles and zigzags on balloons, then color balloons and banner with pencils.
- Draw stitched lines and "shadows" to left of "Happy" with blue marker.
- Adhere enamel heart and gems.
When you have an open stamped space - like a balloon - you don't have to leave it blank. Draw some designs on it (I drew circles and zigzags) and then color the space. It's a great way to add a lot of variety to your stamps!
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
