Up, Up And Away!

Good morning ~ Birgit here with you today. 
 Masculine cards can be challenging for me so when I saw the Hot Air Balloons from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I just knew this would be perfect for a masculine card.

I started by cutting a Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud die out of a piece of scrap paper and using it as a stencil to create the sky scene using distress ink and a blending tool.

Next, I cut two mountain ranges using Impression Obsession Mountain Landscape Layers and layered them over the cloud background.

I cut the Elizabeth Craft Designs Hot Air Balloons out of Soft Finish Cardstock and added color using distress inks and a blending tool and assembled the balloons.  I used a computer generated sentiment and cut it using an Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Fishtail Banner and finished the card off.  

Here's a list of products I used that can be found at Dies R Us
