Hot Air Balloon Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

Welcome to Day One of the January 2016 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge! The challenge was to create something with any of her new release through Elizabeth Craft Designs. Since I am thrilled with this entire new release, it was a little difficult to choose what to use! I narrowed it down to using the Hot Air Balloon Pop-Up since I love Hot Air Balloons.

This is a larger card ... 7-1/2" across and 4-3/4" down as I wanted lots of room to add two more Hot Air Balloons inside. The front has a Hot Air Balloon with pen work detailing, adhered to the card front with an Action Wobble so the balloon bobs and wobbles around. I added the Happy Birthday from the Happy Birthday Pop-Up, a strip of Washi Tape, and clouds with pen work from the Hot Air Balloon set.

Inside there is another pair of Hot Air Balloons - this die set comes with a two step Pop-Up platform that is great for all kinds of things. That little die will get all kinds of use, as it allows you to add a Pop-Up pretty much anywhere on the fold of your card!

These Hot Air Balloons have additional pen work and are joined together with one of the Ring Frame Edges (for the Ring Accordion) and additional banners from the Lots of Pops. I came up with the idea of using the Ring Frame Edges as a banner and I was so happy with how well it worked. You are going to see a lot of this idea from me in the future - it's so fun to come up with another use for your dies! Here I trimmed the white card stock to fit the orange Ring Frame Edge banner.

I added some stamping (coloured with pencils) and another strip of Washi Tape to complete the card.
