It’s a Boy

My cousin is expecting a baby boy. I created this card for her baby shower.

The hippo and balloons outline stickers are from Krazy Kreations. Click here to see how I add glitter to an outline sticker and then color it.

NOTE: I added the nose and mouth pieces to the hippo after it was colored and glittered.

Adding string on balloons can be a bit challenging, so I wanted to show you a couple of ways to do it.

For these balloons, I placed some Designer Dries Clear Adhesive under the balloons and stuck the string into the middle of the puddle of glue. I knew I wanted to use dimensional foam adhesive to adhere the hippo, so I secured the bottoms of the strings with a piece of transparent tape. Super easy!

Then I added a sentiment from Elizabeth Craft Designs and some google eyes … what do you think?
