Now for today’s post!

Every blue moon, I get an idea that excites me! Today…there’s a blue moon!

Today’s card is uber simple with one feature that I think is one of my more noteworthy discoveries 
(now, I could be totally wrong about this – but just humor me 🙂

First – here’s the card

See that vase  – well, I made it with the Papertrey Ink Up, Up & Away air balloon die!
I just flipped it over and cut away some of the balloon top, to give my vase a flat bottom!
I don’t know about you, but this discovery made me SO excited!
(Maybe I need to get out more, huh?)
To finish off this project, I made a simple lined envelope and even used this technique to add a fun address box to the front of the card.
Thanks for stopping by for some Damask Love!

  1. That card is super cute! I flipped when I discovered the vase in the balloon too. I even wrote an article on it a few months back for Scrap & Stamp Arts mag. I love it when you find new uses for stuff. 🙂 Your address lable tut is great too. Love it! Love it ALL!

  2. Amazing card! I can’t believe that’s the balloon – you go girl 🙂 You amaze me.

    I’m kind of a physics geek, and blue moon is the name for the 2nd full moon in one month (we had one on new year’s eve – they happen about every 2.7 years). Tonight is a perigee moon though! – closest in it’s orbit to the center of Earth. So there’s sure to be some good tides!

  3. Amber this is gorgeous! I don’t hink you need a blue moon to have a fabulous idea strike you though. 🙂

    LOVE the balloon as a vase. Genius!
