Cody's Balloon



Hello, I hope you've all had a lovely weekend!  Mine was spent making this for a friend of a friend - well sort of!  This is for the lady that asked for the baby girl Christening card that I made earlier this year well she came back and asked me to make a card for her Son's 1st birthday.  Oh I was all a tremble as it is such an important card, I can make cards for everyday occasions but when it comes to special cards I loose all confidence!  
Anyway, I gave it a go and here is the box I made to hold it.


This is Cody's Balloon from Mo Manning and is my latest acquisition.  I made a practice card which I will keep to show for another day.  Ive paper pieced him using denim paper scraps stuck onto a full A4 sheet so they went through the printer!


So here is the easel card with the box behind.  Im quite enjoying making boxes at the moment only because the last 3 have gone well (did I ever mention that Ive got millions of little card boxes scattered over my desk to store lots of odds and ends - the ones that didnt fit together!)
I was going to use Glossy Accents on the balloon but as it was quite large I didnt want it to buckle whilst drying.
Hope you have a great week,
Keryn x

Wow Keryn!!! all that worry and look how beautifully it turned out. You are so much like me but i think sometimes the cards actually turn out 10 times better than we think when we stress over them!!!. Such a gorgeous image. That lady will be over the moon with it. Big hugs Clare xxx
