Happy For You!


One of the long-term subs at my school just got a permanent position for next year, and I just had to make her a card!  I had this idea to have the word "happy" spelled out on a brick wall, with some balloons taking away the "h".  I found the perfect background paper in the Echo Park Scoot 6x6 pack!


To make my wall, I embossed a piece of gray cardstock with the Cuttlebug Bricks embossing folder.  To make my letters super thick, I cut three layers in white and then one with the red polka dot paper, using My Creative Time's Lowercase Fun Dies.  The "For You" is part of a sentiment from MCT's Gift Card Sentiments stamp set, stamped on a portion of a die cut made with MCT's Vintage Stitched Label Dies.


I cut three balloons using an ornament die from MCT's Warm Holiday Fun and tied them to the "h" with some Thin Hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  So fun!
