I made this card for my father-in-law; it's his birthday next week and hopefully he'll get it on time or just a bit late! I embossed the card base with my new Cuttlebug embossing folder and used the coordinating border folder to emboss the brown strip of card. I made the tag from cream card and coloured it with Promarkers shading from the darkest to the lightest. I know that a hot air balloon is not original for the cue word "UP!", but it's just perfect for this card! I found this ribbon in my stash, cut it in half and attached it to the card with a staple. For the inside I made a mat in brown and stamped a number of balloons around a simple greeting.
It does feel good to get back to making some cards for my favourite challenges!!
That's all for now - off to make dinner. And then this evening we sit down to watch Dr Who - our favourite family viewing. See you tomorrow.
