Now when I first saw this challenge my heart kinda sunk little and I wondered what on earth I could do! Then, as it does, inspiration struck and I thought I'd literally make something Out Of The Box! :D
So I've made DS his birthday card ready for September (oh get me Mrs Organised!!!), and this is what I've come up with - what do you think?
This was a really easy card to make once I sussed out the basic popping mechanism and how to best place the monster so that the majority of him was on display!
The card base measures 6" x 6" and is made from Kraft cardstock. I've used some old papers by Basic Grey that I found in my stash. The glitter dots on the kraft card have been punched from the same papers, glued in place and then stickled. The image has been coloured with Flexmarkers and then accented with Glossy Accents and Stickles. I've used a white gel pen to write the message on the sign.
I drew the balloons and coloured them with metallic Promarkers before attaching them to some acetate. The stars are from a bag of table confetti and I've simply heat embossed them with some copper embossing powder.
All I have to do now is keep my fingers crossed that a) I remember where I've hidden it and b) that DS likes it!!!
Thanks for stopping by today.
