For the front I die cut round and long balloons and punched smaller oval balloons. I glued each color family onto a base, using foam tape for the last two layers.
I added matching bakers twine to each set and adhered them to the front of the card. I wanted 90 balloons, but there wasn’t enough room. The ladies name and age were added to the front with stickers.
What a great opportunity to use my pop-up cake die! I made it with pink dotted cardstock decorated with ribbon and fuzzy trim.
It came out more oval than round and the tops don’t open flat, but I think it is pretty good for my first one. One of the ladies said it looked like a cruise ship, which it does – maybe another use for this die! In order to keep the card closed I glued a little Velcro on each side.
