Up, up and away!

Hello, Janice here with you again to share my latest card 
made for the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.

I recently made this card for my friend's Dad who was celebrating his 70th birthday.

For my card I have used a 7" x 5" card blank, and embossed a smaller piece of
white card with the Darice Clouds embossing folder. Using my blending brush and my Tumbled Glass distress ink, I lightly coloured the clouds, then Matt and layered it onto the base card.

Next using the Memory Box  - Country Landscape die, I cut a small piece of
green card to create the scene and adhered to the cloud card.

Using the Memory Box - Bright Balloon die, I first the balloon on plain white card, and cut another on patterned paper. I coloured the basket with a Promarker pen, and stuck the paper balloon to the white card. Using 3D foam pads I placed the balloon on the card, and drew in the wires.

Finally, I generated a greeting on my computer, and using the Spellbinders - Ribbon Banners, I die cut the greeting and then cut around the die freehand in blue card to give it a border.

Here are the dies I have used:-
