Pastel Birthday

Adhere balloon circles together and create your own dimensional balloon. It will open and lay flat for mailing as well. This card fits an A-2 size envelope. What do you think?

   Celebrate Today
   Kinda Eclectic

   Certainly Celery A-2
   Cameo Coral 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)
   Apricot Appeal DSP (6)

   Apricot Appeal
   Certainly Celery
   Cameo Coral

   Die Cutting

   Apothecary Accents Framelits
   Balloon Framelits Dies
   Subtle Certainly Celery Brads

First, I die cut 6 balloons using the Balloon Framelits Dies and some Apricot Appeal DSP. 

Next, I stamped and die cut my sentiment. I sponged it using Apricot Appeal and added three brads to it.

Next, I stamped my card front. I stamped the sun in the upper right side. I laid down the balloon as a guide and stamped the balloon tails and the sparkles.

I then adhered one balloon onto the card front. I then folded the balloons in half and adhered them together, side by side. I followed a tutorial found at SCS called Honeycomb Shapes. You may want to take a look and then adapt it for your own card.

Lastly, I attached the sentiment using dimensionals and adhered all of the layers together. One of the Basic White panels was adhered to the inside of the card.
