Stampin’ Up! Lighter Than Air Birthday Card

Happy Thursday Stampers & Crafters! I’m finishing off this week stamping with the Lighter Than Air Suite. Today I created this Fun Fold Lighter Than Air Birthday Card! I love an easy Fun Fold and this one is super easy I call it the Book Bind Fun Fold.

My card starts off with Lemon Lolly card stock. Next I matted two patterns of the Lighter Than Air Designer Series Paper to Balmy Blue panels.

I stamped the large balloon image in Azure Afternoon ink on Basic White card stock and die cut it with the Hot Air Balloon Dies. Then using the smaller balloon die, I die cut the ballon image out of the Designer Series Paper. Next I die cut the clouds out in Basic White card stock. Then I die cut the buckets out in Lemon Lolly and Bubble Bath card stock.

I die cut the tag out in Lemon Lolly card stock and stamped the sentiment in Azure Afternoon ink. Next I adhered the side panel of the book bind with Stampin’ Seal. Then I tied a double ribbon with the Balmy Blue Bakers Twine. I adhered the book bind with Stampin’ Seal. Then I adhered the larger panel to the front with Stampin’ Seal.

Next I adhered the clouds to the front with Mini Glue Dots. For the smaller balloon I adhered it to the front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Then for the larger balloon I adhered that to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also adhered the sentiment to the balloon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I added a little “bling” with the Rainbow Adhesive Backed Dots! Thanks for swinging by today I hope you liked my Lighter Than Air Birthday Card. Watch the video below to get step-by-step instructions on how to make this Fun Fold Card.
