Hot Air Balloon Baby Card

I created these cards for my friends and wanted to share the materials and instructions.  Keep in mind that any small embellishments would be cute to have attached to the hot air balloon. Cut the 8.5” by 11” lengthwise or widthwise, depending on the style card you want. Use the corner rounder if desired. Add a piece of designer (5.25” by 4”) series paper to each using the rolling adhesive. Cut out the large, detailed hot air balloon using the Big Shot and thinlet from the Lift me Up bundle. Cut out a solid balloon shape for the background. Use sponge daubers to ink the solid balloon before attaching it to the intricate die. Cut the basket off of the balloon and replace that with the precious cargo the balloon will carry. Stamp the sentiment onto a smaller shape (cut with punches, the Cricut, etc.) and outline them with a slightly larger shape sponged with a coordinating color. The It’s a Girl and It’s a Boy sentiments are from the So Many Sayings set. The Oh, Baby is from the Pocketful of Cheer Paper Pumpkin kit. Embellish with buttons, ribbons and stickers. Use foam adhesives for the balloon, sentiments and embellishments.
