  1. Make card base for a 4.25” x 5.5” card from white cardstock.
  2. Cut 3.75” x 5” white cardstock panel and 4” x 5.25” raspberry cardstock panel; layer and adhere to card.
  3. Stamp balloons, heart, and giraffe on white cardstock; color with pencils and fussy cut.
  4. Stamp balloon image on card's white panel and adhere fussy-cut balloons over it with foam dimensional tape.
  5. Cut white and mint banners from cardstock, layer, stamp sentiment, and adhere to card.
  6. Create dot lines (to lengthen the strings of the balloons) with fine-point pen.
  7. Adhere giraffe to card with foam dimensional tape.
  8. Adhere dots and gems.
If you don't like to fussy cut, use the new PixScan technology that's available for the Silhouette Cameo. I received this amazing gift for Christmas, and this card was my first time using it. It was so fast and easy that I will never fussy cut anything ever again. (To heck with Calgon... Cameo, take me away!)
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
