Make A Wish | SSS APril 2015 Card Kit

Hey everyone! Today I have another card to share that uses the April Simon Says Stamp card kit. For my last card I went really colourful and bold so I decided to mute this one down a bit and use the awesome kraft foil paper as the focal point on the card.

I used the Simon Says Stamp balloon dies to create the three balloons on the card. I diecut two of them directly from the white cardstock piece and the third from the foil paper. To create dimension, I layered the white diecut piece over the pink card base with foam adhesive and added a different pattern of the foil paper beneath each one.

I stamped the sentiment onto the white cardstock panel with Doll Pink ink and then stamped over top of it with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I love the texture and shine the embossing powder adds.

I added strings for the balloons with a black pen and adhered the third balloon, slightly overlapping the largest balloon. I completed the card with sequins and stickles for some added detail. ;)

You can see how I created the card in the video below:
