Balloon Celebrations - Global Design Project #GDP023 Theme: Balloons

What a fun theme it is in this week's Global Design Project  #GDP023. Nothing says fun more than balloons. I have entered a card in a box with the balloons popping up and floating.

The card base uses the gorgeous Shine on Specialty designer series paper and is the perfect base to use being thick and sturdy, plus you get the patterned design on the back. I really love the diagonal pin stripes with that great metallic sheen - just looks so stylish.

The balloons are taken from both Party Balloon Celebrations and Party Wishes stamp set  and comes with the coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch and Party Punch pack. Having the punches to cut out the balloons makes it so easy - and aren't they just adorable? I have coloured in the larger balloons using sponge daubers to get that great blending of the colours.  The Happy Birthday die cut is taken from Party Pop Up thinlits dies as part of the Party with Cake bundle and have used the silver foil sheet to match the pin stripes and acts as a coat hanger to hold the balloons up hehe. I have also punched out the cute little candles and added them on the sentiments, and have been gold heat embossed to make them pop. I have also used foam dimensional to make the balloons and layers pop where needed. Silver glimmer stars were added for that extra shine!

These 3 amazing products help to create this wonderful birthday card and makes it so easy to construct. The sky is the limit as to how you can create and decorate your card. This card in a box is available in a kit and all you need is to purchase the stamp sets and you're all set.
