A Pom-Pom? Why not?

I found a challenge that asked for a card in which a pom-pom was featured.  Well!  How could I resist that?  Especially since I had some tiny pom-poms in Daffodil Delight.  A card was just asking to be created.

I used a base cardstock of Tangelo Twist.  Then I added a layer of Daffodil Delight from which I had cut a star in the upper left portion and then I had run it through my Big Shot using my Decorative Dots embossing folder.  I loved how that let the Tangelo Twist come through in a star shape.  Then I cut a smaller star from Whisper White and stamped that with the party hat from the Sketched Birthday stamp set.  I coloured the hat using my Daffodil Delight Blendabilities and then sponged a bit of Tangelo Twist ink around the perimeter of the star before attaching it in the centre of the star cut-out using Dimensionals.

I also stamped a balloon from the Sketched Birthday stamp set and fussy-cut that out after colouring it with my Tangelo Twist marker.  I attached the balloon on dimensionals and drew a long black "string".  Then I stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the Sassy Salutations stamp set in black ink on a piece of Tangelo Twist cardstock.  I cut that out curving around the letters and then sponged some black ink around the perimeter before attaching it to the bottom left using dimensionals.

Finally I attached a small pom-pom to the top of the party hat.  And my card was complete.

  1. Very cute! I love the little pom-pom on the birthday hat! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

    1. Thanks, Heidi. It was just a stroke of luck that I had some of the pom-pom ribbon (retired) in Daffodil Delight. The rest of the card was designed around that. :)

  2. Thank you for joining us at The Friday Mashup! I love the sponging you added to your star and sentiment. Great card!

    1. Thanks you very much, Avery. Sometimes you know sponging will make a big difference.
