This is my 200th post!!! How cool is that? I'm pretty excited about reaching that milestone. Today's challenge is to make a birthday card to celebrate seven years of Papertrey Ink. We were also supposed to take a picture of ourselves with the card. I barely made it before the sun went down. It's not the best lighting, but it works!
I glued narrow strips of colored cardstock on a piece of white cardstock and then cut it out with a By the Numbers Mat die. I also cut the number seven out of a white mat, stamped my sentiment, and then textured it with the Linen & Canvas impression plate. I then glued my striped number in place.
I stamped the balloon strings with Tuxedo Black ink. I die cut the balloons and then stamped them in Limeade Ice, Hawaiian Shores, and Harvest Gold ink. I stamped the tiny heart with Hibiscus Burst ink and then cut in out to glue in place.
I wanted to keep this card fairly flat for mailing to save on postage. Sometimes simple is best! :)
