Papercraft

Here’s to another year

** 7/2/17 DT Favorite at Crafting When We Can! **
** 7/2/17 Winner at A Bit More Time To Craft! **

Hello, my crafty friends! Happy Saturday – here’s to an awesome and crafty weekend! Our June challenge over at Let’s Craft and Create went live on the 5th and I’m excited to share my mid-month DT inspiration project for Challenge #126 – Girls, Girls, Girls! This is my last post for Let’s Craft and Create, and I’ve truly enjoyed my time with this amazing team. Thank you, Mary, for your wonderful leadership and support! We’ll see all you ladies around blogland! <3

You know how I love fancy folds and I’ve created another Z-box card. These are so much fun! I used the amazing Stampin’ Up! Balloon Adventures stamp set along with the coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch. I also used some new floral papers that I’ve fallen in love with!

I leaned toward a shabby chic style for this card, using lots of girly elements like glitter paper, flowers and lace, and distressing all the elements.

I used my stitched oval dies along with a new Party Banner die. I created a bouquet of balloons secured with a bow.
