Hello FPTFY Readers! Isn’t Keren just super fabulous? Her crafts are always incredibly inspiring and her freebie goodies so beautiful. I count myself completely blessed that I can call her a good friend. So hi there! My name is Jessica and I write the blog Two Shades of Pink. I also craft for a local magazine called Good Living which is loads of fun. One of the issues, I was asked to do thank you cards for the Thanksgiving issue and I came up with this balloon pocket card…
The beauty of this card is that you can use it for ANY occasion. So today I am going to share with you how to make one for Mother’s Day that is a bit more girly but just as much fun!!
First we need our templates and our supplies. I created the card template for you as well as some tag templates. I aslo used Amy Butler’s Paperbut use whatever you like!
You really don’t need a circle punch but if you have one…great!
Let’s get started…
This one will be your front pocket.
(The ribbon will finish off the top edge of your pocket)
(This is the back of your pocket)
The card part is now done! Now for the balloon message…
I think the “Excuse me…I need some air” tag is hilarious and would elicit a smile from anyone who reads it!
This is really easy to make and a great idea for multiple cards like birthday invites, baby gender announcements (how funny would it be to write “It’s a girl!” on a blue balloon?), or shower invitations. The sky is the limit!
I am so happy and thankful Keren let me visit and share with you this card. Please feel free to stop by (twoshadesofpink.com) and say hello anytime. I would LOVE it if you let me know if you ever make this card…I would be so excited to see it!
Hugs to all of you!
Jesus said unto him, If thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
