Instead of adding a spot for tickets I left much of the card blank (I'll be adding Elora's "stats" now that photos have been taken). The CD itself will hold ALL of the pictures and video that I've taken of Elora from her birth to the day I mail out the cards.
I used the CTMH stamp set, "Happy Forever", and I mean I literally used all the images (I didn't use the tiny heart and two of the three sentiments). I used my SU watercolor pencils to color the little guy... when I make the second one I'll use proper watercolor paper for the CD "sleeve" since I found the cardstock I did use didn't react well with water, limiting how much blending I could do.
For the front of the card I used two different sizes of dimentionals (SU and dollar store stuff) so that the middle balloon pops just a little bit more. The kite is also popped off the page.
I used an extra piece of cardstock on the back to cover the ribbon because it's the type that adhesive goes kind of "through" and I wanted to make sure the ribbon wouldn't fall off. (Don't mind the block over my email address, or the shadowing on that stamp... oops!)
I'm super happy with how it turned out and I'd definately use this template and this stamp set again.
Now to get crafting on the second one!! Thanks for stopping by!
