Hot Air Ballons Card (Design Team Project)

by Anne Harada

Hot Air Ballons Card

For this project I used two of Frantic Stamper's own line of stamps, the medium and the large balloons from plate #116. Aren't they just wonderful? I also used papers from the Max and Whiskers Basic Grey collect.

Here's how you can replicate my card:

  • Layer a 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” orange shaded panel of DP from Max and Whiskers collection onto 4” x 5-1/4” Black Cardstock mat.

  • Stamp the large and small balloons onto the panel as shown in finished sample.
  • Stamp the large and small balloons again, each onto different pages of DP from the Max and Whiskers collection. Cut each image out and paper-piece over images stamped on main panel.

  • Stamp the large and small balloons again onto brown shaded DP, but this time only stamp the very bottom part of the images where the basket and rings of the hot air balloon are located. Cut out the basket and rings and paper-piece onto the balloons on the main panel.

  • Stamp your choice of sentiment onto the main panel.

  • Optional: Stamp and cut out one of the balloons again to raise using dimensionals (the center balloon is raised in this sample). Do not add the raised balloon to the main panel until after the next step.

  • Turn the completed image over, draw a line ½’’ around each side of the panel, spaced evenly from the edge to form an inside panel. Use your craft knife to cut along the lines and dislocate the inside panel from the frame you just created.

  • Mat the inside panel onto a 1/8” wider mat of black cardstock. Add dimensionals to the back of this inside panel. Position the inside panel back onto the center of the frame and adhere with dimensionals to raise it and separate it from the frame.

  • Adhere completed panel to 11” x 4-1/4” folded Kraft card base.
