We rise by lifting others!!! I just love this greeting. It is not only good for cards but would make a wonderful home decor piece! So inspiring and uplifting which is just what this world needs more of!!!
Blue and yellow are so fresh and fun and make this card brighter and fabulous! How would you feel if you got this card on a random Tuesday??? Let me know in the comments below!
I started with a Seaside Spray card base. Next, I cut 2 pieces of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″; one for the front and one for the inside! I added a strip of Pineapple Punch Designer Series Paper on the bottom for a little pattern and pop of color! Then I stamped the balloons and birds in Basic Gray and the clouds in Seaside Spray. These images are all from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set. Using the Pineapple Punch and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers, I colored in the hot air balloons!
For the focal point, I stamped the hot air balloon and basket on a scrap piece of Whisper White. I like to stamp in Basic Gray because it is a softer look that using Black. Coloring these balloons is so much fun because there are so many different looks for each balloon! There is a coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch (Bundle & Save 10%) which punches out the basket and the balloon. I added these to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture. The greeting – We Rise By Lifting Others – was stamped in a piece of Pineapple Punch and the banner tips were punched out with the Banner Triple Punch!
I stamped some clouds and birds on the inside white piece to really pull everything together for this card! I just love the beautiful sky look!!!
