I needed a fast card for a couple birthdays, so I did a combo of Cameo cutting and die-cutting. I've seen the large balloon cut like this in dies, but just don't remember which brand. I wanted a background that didn't overtake the sentiment or the number "50" in the first card. It's for my first foreign exchange student who came over from Germany over 30 years ago. My middle son and he became friends and now my son is visiting Germany as I write this post.
Since I was doing one card, I made another card for my girlfriend.
I used the same type of design and am happy with both.
Follows the list of supplies I used to create these cards.
- Intricutz dies Couture Creations (50)
- Elizabeth Craft Design Happy Birthday at Dies R Us
- Elizabeth Craft Design Sleigh at Dies R Us (presents)
- Cameo die (balloon)
- Paper in stash
- Vagabond die cut machine
