May All Your Dreams Come True!

I made this card to give to my friend for her birthday. I wanted to give the hot air balloon the illusion of floating in the sky. So, I put it together as a tri-fold card. The front and middle panels were cut out with an oval nestability. The front panel was layered with acetate to make the window. The hot air balloon was suspended with thread and a small piece of acetate on the middle panel. The back panel a solid piece of cardstock.


The hot air balloon image is by Julie Fujii, formerly, Juju's Tiny Treasure, now, Create in Me. The cloud image is by Great Impressions. Instead of coloring in the balloon, I stamped the image on printed paper and cut it out. To try to add some depth to the card, I sponged clouds on all three panels.


I didn't have a sentiment that matched the hot air balloon, so I hand wrote the sentiment, "May all your dreams come true!".

That card reminds of that movie "Up". It's a really cute card! I like how you wrote the sentiment. It's actually better to write it than stamping one. Your handwriting is really nice. The time I couldn't find the right stamp I should have asked you to write it. Next time I know what to do! LOL.
