Stampin’ Up! Above the Clouds Hi, Friend Card

Believe it or not – Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow!!!!

If there’s anything you were still looking to snatch up don’t miss out!  For a look at what’s available with qualifying orders, click here.

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I then cut out a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies and trimmed off one of the sides.  I stamped the clouds from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set on it in Pool Party ink.

I stamped the outline of the hot air balloon and basket in Calypso Coral on Whisper White cardstock and the inside in the same, only stamped off for a lighter shade.  I cut them out using the coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch.

I stamped the outside of the flag in Pool Party ink and the inside in the same, stamped off.  I fussy cut this out to adhere over the balloon.

I stamped the sentiment from the Above the Clouds in Calypso Coral ink.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I shortened the size to make it fit better.

To see how I shortened the die, you can check out this video I did for a different card that uses the same technique.


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
