A Balloon Card...
...Lovely for children to receive or make

The Balloon Card is such an easy card for your children to make and give to their friends, and they can use simple shapes  created with punches or dies

These pretty papers have been cut into shapes from a die cutter, and many of them are the nesting shapes that are readily available on the market

But you may have punches that will produce the same thing, or even shop bought shapes that you haven't used up yet ... so now is the time to make that balloon card

This is a really good way to use up all the pretty odds and ends of paper that you just can't bear to throw away.

Use up your scraps of foiled, embossed or glitter card too for a fancier look to your balloons

Make your balloons in different sizes too and layer them onto the card front, with foam pads underneath some of them, for a really good effect.

Once you have all the shapes cut, then you can ink the edges of each one just a little to help give them definition.

I have drawn a line using a white Sakura gel pen to one side of each of them to represent where the light would be reflected, though it doesn't show up well in the photograph.

The strings from each one of them has just been hand drawn with a coloured Sakura pen, and the tiny bow has been glued in place where all the strings would join up.

The edge of the card is finished with Faux stitching, again using the Sakura pen and it is easy to do, and yet looks real.

Many of the cards in the Novelty Section are produced in the same way from the bits you may have just thrown away in the past, and they are all cards that your children will enjoy making.

The younger ones may need supervision and guidance but the older ones have vivid imaginations and can very well come up with design you would not have thought of.

And add the sentiment for your occasion to the front of the card

This little card could be used a Party Invitation for the children to send out to their friends when it's their birthday.

And if you have involved and taught them how to make their own Cards then they will feel really pleased with their efforts when they hand them out to their special friends.
