Make A Wish!!!

Today I’m sharing this adorable Balloon Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image and sentiments from KLM Digital Designs new release. This little gnome is on his way to bring a special someone their birthday balloon. Make a wish!!! It could be you. LOL!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. For the sentiment inside the balloon, I split it into 2 lines using Microsoft Word. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then used my Brother Scan and Cut machine to cut it and the black background out behind it. I cut the main sentiment out by hand, glued it some black cardstock and cut around it again leaving a slim border.

For the main background, I used a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. I layered some balloon paper cut at the same size from Forever in Time – Birthday Blast. Then I added some blue cardstock cut at .5″ x 4.25″ inches and added it to the top and bottom of the base card after edging around it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon and a small dauber. Once that was complete, I edged around the entire card with the same ink.

I popped up the image and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to complete the card.
