Birthday Balloon Ride

Hello, hello, I'm back again with another card that I made using the Up In The Air stamp set from MFT Stamps.

This time I colour co-ordinated all of the balloons and the houses and made a girly birthday card.  I didn't put a sentiment on the front of the card but I did stamp the Happy Birthday from the stamp set inside the card.

For the largest balloon, I first stamped the heart banner, masked it off and then stamped the balloon so the banner and balloon are one image.  I cut all of the stamped images with my Brother - ScanNCut.

I used masks cut with the Stitched Hillside Borders dies from Lawn Fawn, in order to ink up the hillside and sky with Distress Inks.  I then sprayed the inked area with a bit of water and blotted it with paper towel to add a bit more texture to the card.

Below is a list of the supplies I used.
