Spellbinders ~ February 2021 Clubs Blog Hop & Giveaway!



Hello friends!  I am thrilled to be a part of Spellbinders February 2021 Clubs Blog Hop and Giveaway! 


 

My card today combines the January Card Kit of the Month "Let Your Heart Soar" and the "Scalloped Rectangle Glimmer Essentials with Sentiments" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit.  

 


I started with the hot air balloon die that is part of the January Card Kit of the Month.  I die cut it using true black card stock and two of the pattern papers that come in the paper pad included in the kit. I ink distressed the edges of each piece of the pattern paper using brushed corduroy ink with blending tools.  I backed the hot air balloon frame with a small piece of true black card stock.  I in laid each of the pattern pieces into the hot air balloon. 


 I trimmed the sky pattern paper and ink distressed the edges of this panel using the same ink.  I added scalloped borders to either side of the focal panel using this month's "Scalloped Rectangle Glimmer Essentials with Sentiments" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit.  I used gold foil and ink blended memento tuxedo black ink over and wiped off excess with a dry cloth.  



 I trimmed one of the included textured card bases for the raised panel. I ink blended the edges using more brushed corduroy ink so all elements would be unified. I used more brushed corduroy ink to distress ink stamp a retired script background stamp to give the white panel a bit of interest along with the texture.  I used some foam tape to pop the panel up onto a top folding kraft card stock base which I ink distressed using brushed corduroy ink and a bit of walnut stain ink for added depth.  I combined all the elements onto the card.  I added sentiments included in the die cut pack from this month's kit. I finished the card with a few clear sequins.
