Hot air balloon card

A card that will stand out from the rest on Valentine’s Day

If you fancy making a creative voucher for your Valentine, or even flying away together in seventh heaven, this is definitely the right Valentine’s card for you. The ingenious thing about this card idea is the 3D effect of the hot air balloons. The two balloons are made up of paper hearts in different colours which are used to decorate the card. The edding 1200 colour pens are just perfect for adding colourful touches. What makes them so special? These popular fibre pens are available in six shimmering metallic shades. The nib is exceptionally soft and produces a bold, opaque colour. The metallic colour pens are great for designs on light-coloured paper, but they stand out even better on a dark background. Once you’ve completed your design you can, of course, continue using the edding 1200 metallic colour pens for the written message. Simply remove the cap, get designing and go wherever your imagination takes you!
