COVID-19 really put a damper on my craft blogging resolution for 2020. It's not so much that I haven't made things throughout the year, but mostly that I haven't taken pictures of the projects or created any content for this blog. So, now it's November, and I'm attempting to get back at it.
Because Coronavirus cases are not under control in Kentucky, my cousin won't be able to have a birthday party this year. Social distancing can be hard, especially for teenagers, so I wanted to make her a special card to make her smile for her birthday.
I decided on a shaker card in the shape of a balloon. Who doesn't love a little sparkle? Especially when it's contained! Shaker cards are perfect for that. Inside the balloon, I used purple micro beads, pink heart confetti, and blue/purple confetti dots against a blue background. For some extra fun, I added a twine string detail to the outside of the card.
