Rainbow Watercolor Balloon Card – Video Tutorial


Hey Stampers!! I’m so excited to show this Rainbow Watercolor Balloon , it so fun, it’s a step up kind of card for sure. Even though there is a lot of steps involved, relatively easy to do. It’s such a pretty and elegant card,  it is sure to wow everyone!! However, I do have to admit that I Case’d this card from the front of the Occasions  Catalog, and that is okay to copy cards out of Catalogs, to get the those creative juices flowing or to step out of the box.

I certainly hope that you love this card as much as I do, and if you have any questions about the tutorial feel free to ask. Also take the time to refer to the video as well.

Happy Crafting!!
