Craftie Cafe: Party Invites


Hello paper crafting peeps and welcome to a fun colourful blog post for Craftie Cafe. The theme for today is Party / Party Invites.

These awesome balloon die cuts from Taylored Expressions can be quite versatile however in today’s card creation I have used them for what they actually are (fun balloons) which I have inked up with Lawn Fawn Inks.


Lawn Fawn Inks –

  1. Sunflower
  2. Chili Pepper
  3. Freshly Cut Grass
  4. Fish Tank

Once each balloon has been inked up I have spritz water over them and picked up any access water with a tissue.

I have placed these balloons down on the top folding card base and have hand drawn with a black markers the strings. Don’t be afraid to add a little hand drawn element to your card. This makes it even more the hand made feature that recipients always love.


Tip: to add a faux layer of the sentiment I have off set to the sentiment diecut to add the illusion of a shadow.
