Happy, Happy, Happy!

I love using Avery Ellie-Ments sentiment dies! They're big and make a bold statement on the front of your cards.


I cut the "happy" sentiment out three times on the front of a piece of green card stock. Then I applied a piece of turquoise card stock to the back of the negative cut, to show through the cut out. I can keep my " three happy words" to use on other cards.
Next, I used the Paper Smoochy Balloon die to cut out some contrasting balloons and attach them together using twine. 

Then I adhered them to the card using some foam dots
 for a three-dimensional effect.

I'm using it again this year for Father's Day cards..

This happy sentiment could be used variety of occasions:
birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduation and the list goes on!
