A Balloon Pop-Up card!

Here is another fun fold card that everyone joining me for my February monthly classes got to make.
It is a cool black & ivory card, using the new Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies & the coordinating 'Balloon Adventures' stamp set!

The center of this card doesn't actually pop out.  I adhered it directly to the center of the card & decorated it.  
This card measures when folded a standard size card at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
Here it is as it is starting to open up!

I think this would be a great card for a birthday, retirement party or it would even make a great graduation card!  
Didn't it cool!!  Who wouldn't love getting a card like this!  I really like it!!

I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch & the Urban Underground DSP to decorate the Balloons in the center of the card.

The 'Lets Celebrate' words are photopolymer, so I curved them a little when I placed them onto my clear block.  That way I could stamp them on a 1" strip of Very Vanilla card stock & then punch them out using the Duet Banner Punch! 

How did I do that?

Yesterday I spent my morning working on Stampin' Up! bookwork.  And the rest of the afternoon I spent working on farm bookwork.  

Last night we went to Brayden's ballgame.  Afterwards we ate supper with Sarah, Nathan Brayden & Masen & Sarah's parents in Hedrick.

This morning Deke is off to powerwash all day.  And I'm off to work on bookwork all day/night!  

I hope you have a SUPER Sunday!
Happy Stamping!
