Cut 5 x 2” and score 1/2, 1 1/2, 2. Cover the 6 x 6” with blue paper from the pad. Form the largest step and adhere to the bottom centre of the 6 x 6”. Once adhered repeat with the next size down steps. To ensure all the steps line up with each other lay the card flat. Form a stand to adhere to the back of the card creating a T shape and trim off any overhang. Die cut white cardstock with Fleur Border Basics to create cloud/sky. On the front of the card, edge the sky and create clouds with Archival Sky Blue. Create your own stencil to create the clouds from cardstock, packaging or heavy weight acetate. Select two green pattern papers and die-cut the hills using the Fleur Border Basics Die, overhang the hills on the steps to create 6” width. Edge the hills with Archival Leaf Green and create a stitched effect with a white gel pen prior to adhering. Cut a construction weight acetate strip approx. 1 x 5” to float the balloon.
Stamp out in versafine smokey grey and clear heat emboss Baby’s Air Balloon and basket banner, Baby’s Friends and Welcome Baby. Color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and die-cut with coordinating dies. Use gel pens to colour the cheeks and bouquets. Stamp out ‘Welcome’ on the basket banner and adhere with foam pads. Adhere ‘Baby’ to the bottom of the basket.
Adhere the acetate to the back of the balloon using strong double-sided tape and adhere to the back panel. Adjust the position to get the correct balance of the balloon. Once in place, cover the back panel with the pattered paper. Decorate the card with Baby’s Friends and Welcome Baby die-cuts.
