I discovered some wonderful hot air balloon Valentine paper in my stash recently and wanted to work it into a card. I often struggle with incorporating prints into my projects and thought this would be a good challenge. I decided to use the Hot Air Balloon Card from the Creative Cards image set, which is included in Cricut Access. A card can be as “from scratch” as you want it to be. I enjoy taking a basic design and putting my own spin on it.
Supplies I used:
- Echo Park Lucky in Love paper (available digitally)
- Tape runner
- Glue dots
- Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue
- Foam squares
- Cricut Glitter Gel Pen
I found a free “Love is in the Air” image on LoveSVG.com. I duplicated it, and hid the inner cuts using the contour feature. I matched the colors as best I could. I flattened the two layers together to convert it to a Print then Cut image.
I used the Blossom writing font for the inside sentiment.
The balloons have several layers. I glued them together with clear gel glue and used my brayer to smooth them down.
I used foam squares on one of the balloons and the heart for dimension.
