Tips on how to use your balloon pop up thinlit as a card front

Quick video with tips using the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Dies as a card front!

I have been creating and having fun using my Balloon Adventures Bundle so I thought it was time to share!
Last year I made a decision to be better about sending out birthday cards and I have been using this bundle to help me do just that! 
While I was preparing for my card making class featuring the Balloon Adventures Bundle I decided to attempt using just the balloon bouquet and banner from the pop-up die to create a card front without the “frame” created by the die. This meant some snipping and fussy cutting had to take place. Uh, oh! Right? Sometimes, it can be challenging to fussy cut things out and still have them look nice!

This die does create some score marks that outline the banner making the banner portion easy to cut out so the biggest challenge was cutting out the balloons. I shared my tips for cutting out around the ballooons on FB Live but have edited it and am giving you the short and sweet version (less than 10 minutes!) that you can watch here:

For your convenience, I have listed most of the supplies that I used creating this card below. Clicking any of the images will take you to my 24/7 online store where you can have fun shopping for your own creative supplies! Thank you so much for stopping by to create and learn with me at inkheaven. See you next time as we create, have fun, share, and repeat!
