This is an easy two-tone birthday card using paint store swatches!
The background was stenciled with paw prints from My Favorite Things ‘staggered paws’ stencil, and three different shades of light grey to black were used to try to create an ombré effect.
The balloon die cuts are Mama Elephant and came in a set with a few scalloped circles (sorry I can’t remember the name of the set of dies!).
I used regular black string to attach to the back of the balloons, and made the gift (which is from Avery Elle’s Bah humbug set) appear like it was being floated away with balloons!
The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp, and the dog is from My Favorite Things.
Thank you for stopping by to say hi!!
