Explosion Card

Today I will be making a 3D Explosion Card using the Balloon Ride Paper Packet and the Give A Lift Stamp Set!!!!

Explosion cards are a  hot trend right now and this was my first attempt! They are perfect to send in the mail {would require a custom envelope} because they lay flat and then they pop open!!

Using Saddle Cardstock and Balloon Ride B&T Duos™ I created the card base, adding the zip strip to the flaps of the box. The hot air balloons {from the Give A Lift Stamp Set} are stamped on Colonial White Cardstock using Saddle Exclusive Ink™. I used CTMH’s Watercolor Pencils {temporarily unavailable} and a Blending Pen to add color. I added clouds cut at various sizes from the Cricut® Artiste Cartridge and gave added dimension using the Dot Embossing Folder.
