Birthday Balloon Step-Ups

 

Happy Friday!

This is my card for the MIX109 challenge and the F4A262 challenge on Splitcoast this week. I used a very fun card die set from Sizzix. This is the Sizzix Thinlits Step-Ups Balloon Set. Papers are from Papers and More. Love it!

You can see the full supply list below.

I started by die cutting the card base. All the folds are created for you. Balloons 1 Jeanne_Streiff

I watercolored and splattered (white acrylic paint thinned with water) some papers and used them for my panels and balloons. I used the Sizzix Magnetic Platform and my Sizzix Big Shot. The Magnetic platform makes it easy to use multiple die cuts in one cut in the area of the paper you want to use. Balloons 2 Jeanne_Streiff
