I worked on my cards for the Online card class yesterday. The first one with the balloon came out great and I was so pleased with it. The balloon is strips of colored cardstock glued on white paper then die cut. Then you die cut the card front and inset the balloon. Then just cut a strip of the colored paper and use as a strip along the side. The colored paper was wider than the die, so that is why there is red in the strip and not the balloon! The second card went well too, until the last step. OMG, did I blow it. When I cut out the hello the whole thing fell apart. I had strips of paper behind the two speech bubbles but not high enough. So it is glued here and there and messy. Then the white was showing through the h and ll's. I kept looking at it last night and this morning I added a blue in the h and yellow in the ll's and o.  Now it's a little better but still gluey. I did learn a lot though. Today is another day. Be kind to one another.
