Valentines 2021 - Balloon Heart

Today's card is a shaker design with some tiny confetti hearts inside. I had the idea of making it into a balloon with some silver thread and I don't think I have seen one of these anywhere else. The name for this card is "You lift me up" and I have added a sentiment inside to this...

These two cards are examples of ones that did not turn out in the way I hoped. I usually don't post these type of disasters up on the blog but I think that it is useful to show the ones that didn't work as much as the ones that did. That is really how you learn in life after all.

We are coming to an end of this short Easter series of projects, with a couple more egg themed cards to go. This one is so simple but looks expensive, with an embossed pearlescent egg and ribbon. Embossing folders and pearlescent papers are truly a match made in heaven.
