As soon as I saw the new Amazing Paper Grace 3D Vignette Hot Air Balloon Etched Dies from 3D Vignette Collection by Becca Feeken from the Amazing Paper Grace 3D Vignette Collection I instantly thought of creating a sweet baby card. This design would be perfect done in so many colour combinations to suit all tastes. I used this as an opportunity to make some gorgeous flowers to decorate the balloon for a pretty and feminine finish to the card.
Dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace were used in today’s creations.
There are 21 dies in the Amazing Paper Grace 3D Vignette Hot Air Balloon
My Projects for Today
For my 4″ x 6″ card I have added a pretty embossed base for my hot air balloon. I have added a pink and white balloon with silver trims to the card front and popped some clouds behind the balloon. The sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace My Sweet Friend Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken. I have handcrafted roses from the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud die and the small flowers are from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken. To finish the baby card I have added a foiled sentiment from a Spellbinders Sentiments for Everyday Glimmer Plate and Die set.
This sentiment from the Spellbinders Sentiments for Everyday Glimmer Plate and Die set is perfect for this card.
I have die cut three ‘Baby Girl’ sentiment out of pink cardstock three times and stacked them together to create more dimension and help the sentiment to pop from the background.
I sponged the basket with Sepia ink for a more dimensional look.
The roses have been coloured with pink and yellow inks to create a two toned effect.
I have angled the balloon on the card to enable me to add the sentiment to the base of the card.
I have used the same yellow in the rose for the smaller flowers and the small blue flowers are the same colour as the clouds to help create a harmonious colour palette.
The flowers have been painted with a clear gloss medium and sprinkled lightly with ultrafine crystal glitter for some sparkle.
