Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up Bundle puts love in the air! 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This was a fun card to put together. The different levels of layer and texture give it great visual interest and except for placing the balloon basket, very easy! (And that really wasn’t hard, it just required a few extra steps.)
It is difficult to see in the photo but the balloon is cut out of the Real Red and recessed into the Whisper White. The clouds add another dimension as they are cut out with the dies and layered on top of the card. And, with the Falling Petals Folder adding “hearts” to the Real Red layer it looks great! 
To get the basket placed, I lightly tacked down my Real Red layer and lightly penciled in where the basket needed to be stamped. Then I removed the Real Red layer and stamped my balloon basket over my outlined area. This is one place where photopolymer would have appealed to the lazy side of my stamping! However, I have this set in clear mount so I had to pull out my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the proper placement (woe is me, right? I’m such an eyeball-er! ha ha). Once the basket was stamped the Real Red layer could be permanently applied to the Whisper White card base. (Note: The balloon was die cut prior to being ran through the Falling Petals folder.) 
After the Real Red layer in set in place, it’s pretty easy to center the love heart in the center of the balloon.  
Since the clouds are die cut and added on top those are pretty simple. I did have to stamp the sentiment on Whisper White prior to die cutting my cloud. It.Just.Fits! I layered those with glue dots. I wanted just a “little” pop-up.
Have I mentioned before how much I love the Falling Petals embossing eolder? I love how it looks like hearts and can’t wait to start playing with it more as a floral texture later. It’s been a great texture add to those Valentine Cards!
