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.
I think this would be a great card for a birthday, retirement party or it would even make a great graduation card!
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!
