Today I want to share this Balloon shaped card that’s also a Shaker card. I haven’t made a shaped card in a while so this was kind of fun. On top of that, I absolutely Love these Monster!!! This is a Digital image and the set has All 3 Monsters, I’ll leave a link below if you want to check it our. First I made my Balloon Card base using Simon Says Stamp’s Balloon Die. This die set has multiple sets of Balloons in it so the set is very versatile. I then cut another balloon using the same size as my base for my card front, using watercolor paper. I used that piece and cut out 3 circles using the SSS In Stitches circle die. This has stitching on both the negative and the positive side so my circles that I cut has stitching on it, which is pretty cool. I also used the same dies to cut myself an Acetate and some foam which I’ll use for the shaker portion.
I printed All 3 Monsters onto a Neenah Solar White paper and I couldn’t decide which one to use so I decided to used all 3. I colored the monsters using my Copic markers. I used the Inktense Pencils on the watercolor paper to add some color to the Balloon panel. I used 3 different colors for the 3 circles and then used a brush and water to liquify the colors. I tried to match the hole to the color of the monsters. I then used the Peacock Feathers on the rest of the balloon. I attached the acetate to the front balloon and attached the foam. In the circles I added some small seed beads, I didn’t add to much because I didn’t want to cover up the monsters. I added some bakers twine bow at the knot of the balloon, and put a Happy Birthday sentiment. I do have a Full Tutorial on how I made this card on my Youtube Channel, if you’d like to check that out.
