Celebrate...& My 300th Blog Post!

Hi Crafty Friends!  I'm so excited to share today's card with you!  Oh, yeah, and this is my 300th blog post!  

Over the 3-day holiday weekend, I was able to get in some much-needed crafting time.  I created some cards that I am super stoked about, so you'll have to check back in later this week and next as well to see them all.

I promised myself when I sat down to create that I would use new stamps and Framelits dies, as well as revisit some techniques I hadn't used in a while like embossing.  

For today's share, I made this Celebrate Card using some very simple ingredients:  embossing powder, the Heat Tool, the Big Shot, and vellum--YUM!  

As you can see, this card is very simple.  I die cut a few balloons and banners using the Balloons Framelits Dies, and stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Today Stamp Set onto vellum and heat embossed it.  Easy, right?

I love how the balloon colors play against the bokeh background from patterned paper in the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!).  Gotta love bokeh!

I hope you like this card, and thank you for celebrating my 300th blog post by visiting with me today!  I enjoy blogging and sharing my creations here with you.
