Happy Tuesday!! You know what that means! I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! Check out this fun floating Hot Air Balloon Card!!! I love how Window Sheets can create so much illusion on a card!!!
All the beautiful Hot Air Balloons floating in the sky. I have been to St. Louis to the Hot Air Balloon Race and it was amazing. I would love to go to the one in Arizona!
This card has a Seaside Spray card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11. I started by stamping the clouds and small hot air balloons all over the center of the card front. I used the stamps from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set. The clouds were stamped in Seaside Spray and the balloons in Basic Gray. Be sure to stay in the middle of the so that your images aren’t coming out the sides from your frame. I placed a scrap piece over the edge if I wanted an image near the edge.
Next, I die cut the Stitched Rectangle frame by placing the 2 framelits down and securing them with a Post It Note so I could create multiples and they would stay in place. I added a piece of Window Sheet to the back of the frame and then added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
To finish off the front of the card, I added a Hot Air Balloon flat on the Window Sheet for that floating Hot Air Balloon look. There are 2 different styles of balloons in the Above the Clouds Stamp Set as you can see in the photos above. Using Stampin’ Blends, I colored them in and punched them out with the coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch. The baskets were both stamped onto Basic Gray and punched out. I thought the border needed a little something so I tied a little bow with some Whisper White Baker’s Twine and secured it with a Mini Glue Dot.
Of course, I had to stamp on the inside with a few clouds and balloons and that fabulous greeting! I think this will be a perfect card for my nieces and nephews!
