Polka dot balloon


Hi there!

Who can resist a polka dot challenge? Combine it with a balloon, rainbow colors and foil, and you have a recipe for fun!

Just the right thing for a happy birthday wish!


up close:



... and another angle:



I filled the balloon with polkadots, printed with my laser printer and added rainbow Deco foil from Thermoweb ,with a laminator.

The string is from Design ID #76115 in the Silhouette store, and the balloon is a free dingbat font called "balloons".

The sentiment is my own, created with the fonts "Anton" and "CF Jack Story".

I finally added a tiny punched bow.

Really wish you can see the foiled effect IRL. So fun!

My card was inspired by the following challenges:

This card SCREAMS "happy"!!! Awesome fun colors! The sheen/sparkle/shine steals the show! Really, really cool how your 'happy' mimics the curve of the balloon string! You are soooooo clever!!!

Wow and wow, this card is mind-blowing! The making of it sounds quite complicated, I've never heard of this foil, but I can believe the results look so fantastic and shiny IRL! Absolutely brilliant card! Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational!

Baie, baie, baie oulik, vrou!!!!! Daai ballon met sy blink polka dots is eenvoudig 'n wenner en ek's mal oor die pikante strikkie!!!!!! Mal oor die font van die 'happy'!!!!! 'n Absolute wenner!!!!

Hannelie...I can see the shine from your foil on my computer :-) Wow!!! You added so many clever details to your colorful and fun card. I loved the font on your sentiment too. TFS my friend. Hugs...

P.S. Did you see our new CAS Mix Up Challenge today and all the DT samples. I thought they were all so creative and fun. I hope you get to play along too. We just LOVE your CAS Mixed Media Style :-)

Fantastic Card, what a wonderful way to use the rainbow foil.

Super vrolijk deze ballon! Vind het zelf meestal lastig zo fel papier te gebruiken, maar zo ziet her er verfijnt uit!
Het is hier weer warmer en vandaag ook nog ietsje zonniger, dus zie ik de sneeuwklokjes met een rotvaart uit de grond komen en al bijna open zijn... Groetjes, Gerrina

Gorgeous!!! it nearly makes me happy that my printer just died ... I'm thinking I must have a laser printer so I can join in the foiling fun! OH thanks for the little IG video - LOve that holographic looking foil!

Very cute card! Love the sentiment. I googled "Anton" and I am pretty sure that is not the fun font you used with the swirl. Is there a chance you put the wrong font down. The other looked to be right. Thanks for sharing yuour talent...

Hello Hannelie,

j'aime beaucoup votre carte, je ne reçois plus vos NL et vais tenter de me réabonner !
j'ai trouvé la police du sentiment, Cantoni, qui va très bien avec le lien de ce ballon..
Mes amitiés de France
