What a Loot

Had some time yesterday to make a card, and I decided to use the cute stamp "What a Loot" from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong collection, to play in a few challenges.
I decided to make it a little different from my regular "fold in the middle" cards, and thought I'd give Lori's crisscross card tutorial a try.


 I followed Lori's tutorial from Whimsy's Tips and Tutorial Print Magazine . I would give you the direct link to the tips and turorial magazine, but since the cost includes shipping it depends which country you would order it from, so I am just linking their entire print magazine collection, and you can find the right one for you, should you decide to pre-order it.

The tutorial  can also be found in Issue #8 of Whimsy' free online magazine.



I made a tag to go into the pocket, using a stamp from the set "Birthday Greetings", also just released in Whimsy's last rubber stamp release.
It's hard to tell in the photo, but I added glassy glaze to the balloon, and glitter on the party hat and bows.



The balloons on the left were done using Whimsy's balloon cluster die. But I cut them apart and only used 2 of the balloons to make it work with my design.
