Hot Air Balloon Twist Card (NEW RELEASE)

Good morning friends

This is actually the first card I made with Karen Burniston's NEW Occasions Release, for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I love that the dies are completely generic and can be used for any occasion or theme. I had this sunny yellow piece of Soft Finish Card Stock sitting on my stamping table, and that was the jumping off point for my card.

When you open the card, you can see the hot air balloon on it's side ...

... and when it's fully open the hot air balloon twists and pops up in the centre of the card. SO cool!

There are lots of Decorator Dies included with the Twist Circle Pop-Up, including this cute HI circle. Here I cut it out of teal and white, then inlaid the white HI into the teal circle. I added banners from the new Anita Frames Pop-Up for some pizzazz. Banners and hot air balloons go hand in hand, don't you think?

The new Circles and Labels set is going to be very versatile - you will be seeing a lot of that set used by the Designer Challenge team for sure.
