Stampin’Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card

Stampin'Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card

This cute Stampin’Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card is actually quick and easy to create.  Just one run with the Bigshot die cut machine!

The whole background is a sheet of Succulent Garden DSP (but you can use any coordinating paper!)  Punch two silver foil paper clouds and punch with the Tree Builder punch.  Stamp two clouds in smokey slate ink and punch these.

You can run the hot air balloon from the Up & Away thinlets in Bermuda Bay at the same time you run the three white backing pieces!  Attach the white pieces to the back of the balloon.  This gives a spot to hide the pop up dimensionals!

Attach the white ribbon, and make a looped bunch of silver thread.  Attach with a knot.

Stamp your sentiment and flag the ends.  Remember to make the envelope pretty!
