Masculine Birthday Card
My card base is white card stock cut and folded to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" and is a portrait card. I used my Imagine and the Best Friends cartridge to print out the cloud paper and cut it to 4" X 3 1/2". The green patterned paper is from my stash and is cut 4" X 2 1/2". The hot air balloon is from the Summer in Paris Cricut Mini Cartridge and is cut at 4". I used my Imagine to color the balloon's layers. Once cut and removed from the mat I sprayed the brown layer lightly with some Coffee Shop glimmer mist and the blue layer with some Dragonfly Glimmer Mist. This just helped enhanced my colors on each layer and covered a few white edges that showed on the blue layer. I adhered the two layers together and pop dotted it to the front of my card and stamped happy birthday in some brown chalk ink. Pretty quick and simple card but seems to work for a man's card. What do you think? Thanks for visiting.
