3-D Hot Air Balloon Valentine Card

Create this Love You More 3-D Balloon Card with the Lighter Than Air Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin Pretty

Seriously . . . this 3-D hot air balloon created with the heart die from the Stampin’ Up! Hot Air Balloon Dies couldn’t be easier to make. Crop three Basic White Hearts. Score each down the middle (I used the groove in my Paper Trimmer and a bone folder) and adhere. Voila!

WHAT I LOVE!  The Stampin’ Up! Lighter Than Air Suite (includes the 10% Off Hot Air Balloon Bundle) made the list of My Favorite Things from the Spring Mini Catalog! I love the impeccable coordination of the Hot Air Balloon Bundle with the Lighter Than Air Designers Series Paper, Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots and Bakers Twine 3 Color Pack (Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lolly, Balmy Blue)! Also featured today and on the list of My Favorite Things is the “dotted” die from Everyday Details Dies.
