'Tilda with a Balloon' Card by Melissa

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Melissa has created a super sweet card to share today.
I hope it gets you feeling crafty too!

•    Base Card – Cut white card 14 x 21cm and fold in half.
•    Cut a piece of white card 10 x 13.5cm.  Colour edges with copic marker.  Adhere to base card.
•    Cut a piece of white card 9.5 x 13cm.  Emboss this card using the ‘Musical Flourish’ Embossing Folder.  Adhere to base card.  For something different, I like to use the other side of the embossed card to give another effect.
•    Cut a piece of white card 7.5 x 13cm, colour edges with copic markers and adhere to base card.
•    On a piece of XpressIt blending card, stamp ‘Balloon Tilda’ with Momento Tuxedo Black and colour with Copic Markers.  Apply glitter to balloon.  When dry cut around image and adhere to base card with foam tape.
•    Stamp Sentiment onto white card.  Trim around edges.
•    Cut a matt of white card for sentiment.  Colour with copic markers and adhere sentiment to each.
•    Adhere sentiment base card.
•    Cut banner from pattered card and adhere to base card.
•    Using a Copic Multiliner, draw the ‘string’ for the banner.
