Hello everyone! I have some cards the next couple of days that I have made for retirements and birthdays. I will apologize in advance that this one and one other uses one retired stamp set (the "celebrate" sentiment) because I needed something to make the card pop and this was the perfect size. So, I made this pretty simply. I used two layers of Whisper White cardstock. On the front layer, I stamped out the clouds from the stamp set Up and Away in Soft Sky and then one more on a scrap and cut it out using the Up and Away Framelits.
I cut out the square using the Stitched Shapes dies and cut it out of Crumb Cake card stock. I stamped the hot air balloon in Real Red on Real Red card stock and cut it out with the matching die.I tied some Night of Navy Baker's Twine behind it before adhering it to the card. I popped both the hot hair ballon and the cloud up using Dimensionals. I finished off that part by using a Soft Subtle Enamel shape(heart) on the front of the balloon.
And here's the retired "celebrate". I stamped it in Real Red and then stamped the other sentiment from the stamp set Happy Celebrations in Basic Black ink onto Crumb Cake card stock and just fussy cut it out.
I'm leaving for Hawaii in 7 days! I will do my best at getting the rest of my cards blogged for you before I go.
Have a great Thursday!
