This card took awhile to create just because you had to let the Whisper White dry after you used the Aqua Painter on it, coloring the sky, elephant, and mouse. The gold metallic washi tape is retired, but the card really doesn't need it unless you love bling! I stamped off with the flourish from Timeless Treasures in Crumb Cake ink on the Whisper White base. The fun part was using an exacto knife to place a small slit on the top and bottom of the elephant trunk AFTER the paper has dried. Take at least 6 inch lengths of the gold thread to tie around the base of each balloon and tape one end of the gold thread to the back of the balloon. Then use one of those blue "flossing loops" as your needle to pull the 3 gold threads through the slits in the trunk at the same time. Then you can adjust placement of the balloons on your card front.
This card goes together quickly with your Big Shot by your side. The small polka dot paper and basic black ribbon has retired. I learned a new trick on how to tie the ribbon that I can't believe I didn't know after 5 and a half years as a demonstrator. Check out the video at the link below. It is awesome!
Have fun making these cards and enjoy giving them away!
