Hot Air Balloon, in 3D!

Happy Thursday! Today’s card was made for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch — the ladies there are so nice! They leave such sweet comments–makes my day!!

This Light Than Air Suite is such a pretty suite! And, since Albuquerque is the home to the world’s largest balloon fiesta, I just had to have it!! For this card, I actually used some scraps of the designer paper (Lighter Than Air 6×6) to create the strips. Then I cut three of the smaller balloons from another pattern. Fold them in half, then glue them together to create this fun “3D” balloon!

The clouds were cut out twice from Basic White card stock, then stacked together. They are attached using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finished it off with the sweet Rainbow Adhesive-backed Dots. Below is a view from the top, so you can see the balloon.

  1. Super cute, Tammy! I went to the balloon fiesta once when I was a kid as my uncle used to live in ABQ. Mostly I remember being freezing cold and how my brother had neglected to pack socks for the trip 😀

  2. What an adorable card! I love the 3D nature of the hot air balloon and the beautiful patterned papers. Thanks for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
