myStampBOX: Card Inspiration

Fellow myStampBOX design team member Tracey Taylor recently posted this super cute card using products from our partner companies Kiki Art and Helmar. I knew that I needed a birthday card for a little girl we know, so I decided to put my own spin on this card.

I chose a different girl and hot air balloon from the Kiki Art paper and handstamped the greeting using the Lines of Life set of myStampBOX stamps. I loved Tracey's idea of adding stamped clouds to the card to match the background paper, so I decided to add a bit more texture. I adhered white felt to white cardstock and stamped some clouds from Wishing You Sunshine onto the cardstock backing. I handcut the clouds and adhered them to the card front, layering the hot air balloon over the top. I love how this card turned out, and the birthday girl loved it, too. Inspiration is everywhere, just keep your eyes open!
