Hot Air Balloon "Happy Birthday"
I still have some catching up to do with cards we made in 2015.
Here is a wonderful Hot Air Balloon Birthday card we made. The balloon base card was cut with the Cricut and used the Close to My Heart cartridge "Artfully Sent" (Z3168). The balloon part is usually open, but we placed red cardstock on the back.
The middle piece with the clouds was also cut with the cartridge and we placed a piece of white cardstock behind it to show off the clouds.
Inside we stamped a "Happy Birthday" phrase and decorated the balloon with some rhinestones.
The little bakers twine makes sure the card stays closed.
The cut out pieces from the clouds were used to decorate the front of the envelope.
