Balloon Adventures Birthday Card

I have the great privilege of helping my good friend host a Stampin’ Up! party this Friday.  I’ll be providing all the goodies to make four cards for her guests and because it looks like she’s going to have a great turnout, I wanted to keep them on the simpler side.  Having said that, I also wanted to show another option for the card going a step further in the design – the “step up” card.

My card uses Emerald Envy as its base which I layered with Whisper White.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set in Pacific Point.  I created two balloons using Pacific Point, Emerald Envy, and Crushed Curry cardstock and ink and the Balloon Adventures Bundle.  I added two patterns from the Party Animal DSP to the bottom of the card.

For my “step up” version, I used basically the same ideas as the other card but created a pop-up card using the Balloon Adventures Bundle.  Because it makes a thicker card, I knew I needed a belly band to keep it closed.

This time I stamped the “swirlies” in Crushed Curry at the bottom of the card and made the belly band using Emerald Envy cardstock and the same patterns of DSP.

This is the first time I had made a pop-up card and it was super easy after I watched the Stampin’ Up! Balloon Pop-Up video which gave clear instructions.

Here’s how the inside of my card turned out – not bad for the first time!

Enjoy!
