Balloon Adventures

Happy New Year!  It's hard to believe another year is upon us.  Where does the time go?  My share with you today is using some of the new products in the Occasions Catalog going live January 4th, 2017, so just a couple more days to wait.  It has tons of fun things coming your way.  This card was made for my 5th grandchild's 1st birthday.  His Mommy and Daddy are Denver Broncos fans and that was the theme for his party so I pulled the orange and blue from the Party Animal dsp.  I started with a base of Pacific Point and then a layer of Whisper White embossed with the Confetti embossing folder.  I layered a strip of the design paper onto some Tangerine Tango cardstock and put that along the left side.  Some Emerald Envy 1/8" taffeta ribbon and an embellishment from the Party Animal embellishments finish off the strip.  On the right side I used the Balloon Bouquet punch for the Pacific Point balloon and then layered a cutout from the Balloon Pop-Up thinlits die in Tangerine Tango.  The tail of the balloon was stamped in Emerald Envy ink and finished with an Emerald Envy bow cut from the thinlits die.  The inside was made with a piece of Whisper White cut with the Balloon Pop-Up thinlits die.  I stamped 2 of the balloons in Tangerine Tango and the middle one in Pacific Point.  To the middle balloon, I added a Tangerine Tango cutout.  The banner was stamped in Tangerine Tango and the greeting in Pacific Point.  Another Emerald Envy bow holds the balloon strings together and little strips of the dsp finish off the inside.  I also used the dsp to make an envelope and cut Cole's name out of Tangerine Tango cardstock using the Large Letters Framelits.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!
