Slimline Card Blog Hop

 The Stamp of the Month group of Makers is hosting another hop for you. Slimline cards are trending right now so that calls for a HOP! The blog before mine belongs to Alyson Mayo. Click the link in each post to hop to the next blog! Sounds easy.....because it is!

I created a balloon bouquet knowing it would be perfect for a tall slimline card. The pattern paper is a perfect pairing for the balloons and festive theme! The balloons were easy to make with the Thin Cut dies. The strings have a die, too, as does the little tassle!

It's always hard to photo clear shimmer but you can kind of get the idea in this shot. All the balloons were painted in the clear shimmer and it adds a fun bit of bling to the card as do the gold sequins. That fun red check strip is one of our Zip Strips!

  • Cardstock: White Daisy, Scarlet
