Little Balloon notes

I kept looking at this balloon from the new feel better set thinking you know this could stand alone on a card so, I tried it. Each of the balloons on these cards were paper pieced from scraps of prints in my scraps bin. so, the mfg info of those are unknown.


 This particular card is an A-7 in real life, the balloon panel was stamped with Versafine onyx black and die cut with an Spellbinders long rectangle die, and so was its frame so they are taped back together on the back sides and up on pop dots. because, I like how embedded die cuts look. There is also a little bit of white gel pen into the detail of the balloon where the light would hit on each of them. The sentiment on this one is from the every day sentiments set.

Now these are only 3" square notes in real life, so the balloons string was stamped off the edge of these fronts and the sentiments are also from the feel better set. the one in the center that has the hearts those were the scraps of a die cut done with mirror paper from a precious mobile die from Memory box and I thought they just might be use able ( that piece that cuts out of a frame) so, they happened to be sitting on the table while I was poking around in the scraps bin for things with a small enough scale to suit these balloons so, I don't know how visible it is but, that red balloon has Love words all over it.
These are just that size that works for lunch boxes or purse's or tucking into a coat pocket, you have enough room to write a quick note on the inside but, its not a labor intensive scale. either decorating the front or writing a novel on the inside. I think that makes the 3" size just fun to play with that way.
There are still a few more days left to play along with the color challenge this month and have a chance to win a shopping gift card to the store. you can find the details for that here.

These are adorable, Stacy, and I especially love the little note cards! Sometimes I just need a quick little note to put inside something I'm mailing - like a gift. Love them all! Hugs, sweet friend!
