Taking the white cardstock cut the lace frame using the Round Window Frame die, with the Blue sky ink and bring the color to the lace frame with the inking tool, dauber. Taking the white card stock and the stamps and dies used for this card, make the embellishments. The embellishing list: x6 the balloon, x2 the Koala’s x1 the Raccoon, x1 the Elephant, x6 a larger sized flower (to make 2 flowers), x10 a smaller sized flower (to make 2 flowers and 1 bud), 15 the leaves, x1 baby and boy, x8 both baby and boy from card.Once the elements are stamped and die cut bring color to them by using the inks and ecocline pens.

For the balloon, trim away the ropes on 4 of the balloon. From the remaining balloons trim away one on the left and the other on the right. Using the score-pal, make a score line in the centre of each balloon and make the fold. Adhere all the folds together but making sure you have the ropes and basket on each outside. Adhere the baskets together so they form one basket. Make the flowers and leaves ready to adhere in place.
Adhere the lace frame in place then the air balloon, when adhering the basket in place do this only around the edges so you can slip the Koalas into the basket. Do this. Adhere the baby boy in place then the flowers and leaves. Last adhere the raccoon and elephant above the flower cluster. When all is secured, apply the stickles to the flowers on the critters and the edges of the words. Apply also to the hearts on the air balloon. With your finger or a sponge apply a little gesso on the air balloon edges, the lace edges and the leaves and flowers.
