Masculine Birthday with MFT Chevron Coverup II

Great cards can be made using negative elements from a graphic die. This card that was made using the negative space leftover from My Favorite Things Chevron Coverup.

A piece of Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and used the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool to create an ombre of color with the following Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick.  The panel was run through the Big Shot with My Favorite Things Chevron Coverup.

To add dimension to the chevron stripes I cut thin strips of 3M 1/2″ foam tape and applied it to the back of each strip.  (In retrospect I think it would have been much easier to cut the die again using Darice Adhesive Fun Foam.)  Using the cutout panel the strips were adhered to the front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

Matching balloons were die cut from scraps of paper with Lawn Fawn Party Balloons and adhered using 3M 1/2″ Foam tape, with the front balloon using a double thickness of foam tape.  The balloon ties were made from red DFN Craft Thread.  To keep the loops I put a dollop of Tombo Mono Multi Glue on my thumb and applied it to the thread.  This allows it to stiffen and it can be shaped while still wet and will dry in the desired shape.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Big Birthday Sentiments stamped with VersaMark Ink on Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White Embossing Powder and then adhered to the front of the card with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.
