Designer Tip: 1) Cover the card with brown cardstock. Cut a 4 5/8”x6 1/8” pink patterned paper. Place a 3”x4” piece of craft foam beneath the upper left corner of the pink paper, with the backing on top. Place the balloon cutting die on top of the pink paper, 5/8” from the left side and 1 1/4" from the top, angled as shown. Run it through your die cutting machine. Ink the edges of the balloon-shaped opening with Timber Brown ink. Die cut 1 additional balloon from each of 3 papers: aqua stripes (from the butterfly corner sheet), pink/aqua/gray/white stripes, and aqua geometric paper. Ink the edges brown on each. 2) Place the pink patterned paper centered on the card front. Align the aqua geometric balloon die-cut beneath the balloon-shaped window on the brown cardstock. Glue the die-cut in place. Remove the pink paper and place acetate between the paper and craft foam to line the window. Glue the acetate to the paper. Remove the backing from the craft foam and place on the acetate, aligning the window openings together. 3) Place some pink sequins on the aqua geometric balloon die-cut on the brown cardstock. Apply foam tape on the back of the paper to areas not covered with craft foam. Apply glue to the craft foam and place the paper centered on the card, again aligning the balloon opening with the die-cut. Press in place. 4) Add brown jute twine to the striped balloons for strings and foam tape the them overlapping on the card as shown. Add jute twine for the shaker balloon and Zot™ the 3 strings together, 1 1/2" from the bottom. Tie a bow and Zot™ as shown. Add Dazzles™ as shown.
