None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Up, Up & Away ...

In a rapidly ascending balloon were two men.
One watched the earth getting farther and farther away.
One watched the stars getting nearer and nearer.
~George Jean Nathan, "Viewpoint," A Book Without a Title, 1918

Good evening!
I am here to share a card that I made using the August Facebook Progressive Freebie from DigiStamps4Joy!

When I first received the image I immediately thought “Gingerbread House” Balloon. LOL … As you can see, I did not make the house into a gingerbread one but I did make a Christmas card.

Before attaching the design paper to the card base, I created a frosty border on the base using a little bit of clear Elmer’s glue and ultra-fine glitter. When thoroughly dried, I used a strong adhesive to attach the first layer.

  • Image printed on Georgia-Pacific Premium Cardstock 110wt/92bright and colored with alcohol markers
  • 1-inch circle punch from Marvy
  • Card stock from The Paper Studio (Base), American Crafts, Stampin Up! and The Paper Temptress
  • Design paper “City Sidewalks” from Close to My Heart
  • Elmer’s clear glue
  • Extra fine glitter “Crystal Diamond” from Sulyn
  • Rhinestones from Made by Me
  • Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart
  • Studio G Clear glitter glue

Thanks for stopping by!
(Hugs) Cara
