Anniversary Balloons by Deana


Deana's here with a tutorial on making eye-catching balloons out of SRM Stickers. They're a perfect (and easy!) embellishment to birthday cards, congratulations cards, or in this case, an anniversary card... Here's Deana with more;



Today I want to show you how to use your circle punch and some round SRM Stickers to create handmade embellishments for your cards. To make "balloons" for my card, I used a circle punch & went with a patterned paper that has some very small "love" sentiments on it. Since the stickers are CLEAR (love that!), they work seemlessly over the text on the paper without it being too distracting. The sticker sets I chose are Quick Cards #52005 Love & Sticker Sentiments #51004 Love.



After I punched out 5 circles, I adhered my round SRM Stickers to each one & then added a pop dot underneath to make the balloons appear to be floating on my card. I then cut several pieces of baker's twine & tied up my bunch with another piece of twine to hold them all together. I adhered my bunch of string underneath the balloons.



I finished building the rest of my "scene" on my card before adding my last sticker to the front, "LOVE IS IN THE AIR." The final stickers were put on the inside of the card. I really love how many sentiments are available with SRM Stickers. It makes creating cards SO easy!



Now you have a unique anniversary card with a touch of whimsy!






Join us tomorrow for another fabulous SRM Sticker project!
