MIM #124

This was really an excuse to try a masking technique I saw for use with embossing folders. It took me a few tries to get the thickness right in the Big Shot, but it worked rather well.
For the envelope I stamped off the balloons first to make them slightly lighter to stamp the name over.
I tried stamping the bow for the balloons in ink first but it didn't stand out enough so I added a real bit of twine over the top
