Balloon Trio with Bow

Our community's senior center asked me to make 30-plus blank "just because" cards.  Another volunteer will write cheerful notes inside, and they will go to clients of the adult day care center located in the same building.

I designed a balloon trio, tied with a bright bow.  All the cards are the same design, but with a variety of different prints and color combinations for the balloons and bow.

Note: the gray border is background, not part of the card.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Neenah solar white.
  • Patterned papers are bitty dot, polka dot, and leaf prints from Papertrey Ink (PTI) Hawaiian shores (turquoise), summer sunrise (yellow-orange), and berry sorbet (orangey pink) pattern packs (tone-on-tone prints - retired).
  • I pierced two holes in my card front to tie a bow with green embroidery floss, an old unidentified skein from my stash.  The bow knot is secured with a drop of Ranger multi medium matte.
  • Die is PTI birthday balloons.
  • The sentiment "just because!" and the balloon strings are computer printed in PowerPoint.  The sentiment font is Handwriting - Dakota, bold, with the two e's in a larger font size.
  • The lines across the balloon knots are drawn with Copic 0.5 black multiliner.
