While I was still playing with the sketch from Freshly Made, I thought I would extend myself and create a card using the Balloon Adventures stamp set and matching Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Dies. I started by adding three strips of Animal Party Washi Tape across the top of Whisper White card before attaching to scored and folded Crumb Cake card. I stamped the balloon string three times onto Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink. I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Dies to cut three balloons, one from Tangerine Tango, one from Crushed Curry and one from Emerald Envy. I attached the balloons to scrap Crumb Cake card and trimmed around them. I attached the two outside balloons and then the Emerald Envy balloon using dimensionals. I wrapped the Whisper White card with 1/8″ Emerald Envy Tafetta ribbon and tied a bow before attaching the panel to Crumb Cake card and then the card front using dimensionals.
Now comes the fun part, I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Die to cut Crumb Cake card and carefully folded the score lines before attaching to the inside of the card. I once more cut three balloons, one from Tangerine Tango, one from Crushed Curry and one from Emerald Envy to attach over the die cut balloons. I also cut the banner part once more from scrap Whisper White card. I stamped the greeting from the Balloon Adventures stamp set onto the Whisper White banner using Emerald Envy ink and attached it over the Crumb Cake banner. I attached Whisper White card to each side of the balloon pop-up and also added a row of Animal Party Washi Tape down each side.
Wow, I am impressed, this is such a fun card. It is such a surprise to open the card and find that gorgeous pop-up. I know my grandchildren would just love this. The only thing is, the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Dies didn’t make it into the 2017 Annual Catalogue, they are on the retired list. So if you want this one, don’t delay in placing your order.
Now to find someone special to send this card to.
