Follow Your Heart (To Paris)

Hi, I am currently working on a large invitation order for a 21st, so today I thought I'd share with you one of the DT cards I recently made for Scrappy-Go-Lucky. I have used Summer in Paris - loooove it - all the designs are so pretty and intricate. One of my favourite cuts on this cartridge would be these gorgeous hot-air balloons (imagine them floating past the Eiffel Tower).

The pale plum matt (with distressed edges) and balloon cut is from the Kaiser "Made With Love" collection - it actually has shiny pink hearts that can just be seen among the swirls. The balloons and shadows are all cut at 4".

After adhering the top layer - before the glue dried - I covered the balloons with glitter so it would stick to the edges of the swirls, it looks really pretty.

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, and is on a pale plum tag with some inking around around the edges. The scalloped layer was embossed using the Cuttlebug "Distressed Stipes" folder.

The dark balloon and sentiment were adhered using foam dots to add dimension.

I then added some organza ribbon to finish. Voila !!

Till next time,
Luv, Tereesa.
