Today I’m sharing a fun card project featuring some brand new products from Waffle Flower Crafts.
I’m using a cool Balloon Background Panel Die and a Balloon Background Stencil Trio designed to work beautifully with the die.
I love using ink blending to add color and this trio of stencils worked perfectly!
Here is my tutorial to show you how I created this card:

I’m all about balloons! And not only did you make them look dimensional with your ink blending but you also gave the illusion of the balloons to have a “rounded” look. Very cool!!
