Happy Thursday to you!
After starting the week off kind of rough and fretting over not being able to print any images or use my cricut, I realized that I have this whole bin of rubber stamps that I have collected over the years and I never use them! So now is the perfect opportunity for me to start doing that!
Making this card took me way back to the days when I first started paper-crafting. I even pulled out the stencils to cut shapes out by hand! But honestly, I absolutely love the way this card turned out :)
The sentiment is a stamp from the Verve set Wonderful Wishes. The balloons are from the Black Tie Birdies set but I only stamped the outside line and not all the interior detailing. While I love the detailing on those balloons, I wanted them simple for this card :)
That's it! I think my favorite part of this card is the bright pop of color coming out behind the pup in that patterned paper :) Just love that!
I've learned today that rubber stamps and stencils are still great tools to use when making a card. I'm glad I've kept them all these years :)
