Designer notes:

1. I really love the shape of this card from Doodlebug Designs and the color of the card inspired me of sunshine, summer, and hot air balloons. So, I decided to use the Hampton Art - Art Warehouse - Hot Air Balloons stamp set. The shape and height of the card really allowed a sweet setting of hot air balloons. I mixed up the different size hot air balloons for depth to the card in using a range of the large, medium, and small balloons. I like to stamp/create in “odd” numbers for balance. So, I stamped 4 balloons and then added the 5th element with a dimensional hot air balloon sticker.


2. Then, I stamped a sentiment (“unforgettable memories”) from one of the Studio G collections. Additionally, I embellished the card with sprinkles of wood veneer stars and a metal clockwork part for a steampunk feel that draws interest to the dimensional sticker that also has a play on steampunk.


3. Another thing I really love about this card is the inside view that folds out for a perfect backdrop for a stamped greeting using the “The Best Things In Life Are Free” stamp from the Hampton Art Ditto collection.
