Balloon Card

Another shaped card today, this was going to be a scalloped card but as I opened my die storage the balloon stax called out to be made into a card and as I was using a balloon image it seemed a match made in heaven. The mft balloon stax don't contain the same shape balloon descending in size order so I had to make the paper base but cutting around the inside of the die by hand. As I was making it I kept thinking this needs cloud paper and now I kind of wished I had listened to my inner voice, oh well there is always next time.

I had to make a matching envelope and was presently surprised to find this is almost a 4-bar card size so I think I might make more of this size in the future as its uber cute.

Paper: "happy day" MME
