At noon today, Tanner will be 5 years old!! He was our surprise blessing and has kept us on our toes! I made this card for the Gypsy Challenge that ended 11-5. The Challenge was:
Theme: Birthday, Thanksgiving or Christmas ~ Birthday
1 Weld ~ Balloon, 5, words
1 Word ~ You Are
1 Stretch ~ Balloon
1 Flip or rotate ~ You
2 Pieces of art ~ balloon & 5
I used Fabulous Finds for the shape of the card. I sized and copied the square and hid the cut out on the second square. I used Celebrations for the balloon. I did not want the stars so I hid them with Hide Contour. I used Don Juan for the 5 and Cuttin' Up for the words.
When making a window card, I put the pieces where I need them in order to weld in the frame ~ but before I weld, I make a copy. This way the size is exact for the top layer.
Here is the paper I used. Tanner wanted blue and purple on his card as these are his current favorite colors!
Here he is playing on the computer while I am crafting!
And here is the card all put together!
