SENDING SMILES WITH THE LIFT ME UP BALLOON!

Another card to share with the Lift Me Up Bundle. This time I wanted to add some colour behind the balloon.  This is so easy to do with the shaped framelits in the Up and Away Thinlits set. This card was inspired by a card shared by a Demonstrator friend.

TO RECREATE THE CARD:

Adhere a piece of the ‘Falling in Love’ DSP to a Sweet Sugarplum card base.

Cut the large Hot Air Balloon from Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Using the shaped framelits in the Up and Away Framelits cut pieces in various colours of card.  I used Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and stick your card pieces down. Adhere the Balloon to your card.  Tie off some Sweet Sugarplum (from the Succulent Ribbon Combo) and some Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and adhere on to the Balloon with a ‘Falling in Love’ Embellishment.

Stamp the sentiment on to Very Vanilla Card and cut that with one of the shapes. Sponge the edge with Sweet Sugarplum ink. Cut an oval from the Layering Oval Framelits from Sweet Sugarplum and layer them together.  Raise them up with Dimensionals.

A really very easy card once you put your Hot Air Balloon together.  Try it with different colour combinations perhaps?

Have a great day.
