Up Up and away Spring is coming! Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaron.

I wanted to show more sky and I wanted to feature the Peekaboo Peach with the Mint Macaron.  So here is my offering for today.  I fun fold, and this card was so easy to complete after laying all the pieces out they all fit together perfectly in this little tableau.

The card base is Peekaboo Peach Card Stock cut at 8 1/2 ” X 4 1/4 inches.  Then I folded each side in to meet in the middle by scoring at 2 1/4″ and 6 1/4″ on the long side. Next use a  piece of Carried Away Designer Series Paper (FREE in the Sale A Bration Catalog with a $50 purchase). I used coordinating prints on the top of bottom flap.

Next I Die cut the balloon in Mint Macaron using the Up and Away Thinlets Die.  I also first laid out the colors I wanted in the order I wanted them on the inside of the balloon.  I sued Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder Card Stock die cutting the strips from the Up And Away Thinlets dies.  Using a silicone sheet and Fine Tip Glue  I carefully glued  all the inside balloon pieces.

I also die cut the little clouds from the same die cut set using Thick Whisper White Card Stock.  The ballon was adhered carefully overlapping just a bit with SNAIL Adhesive.  I then adhered the clouds using Stamping Dimensionals.

The Sentiment is fro the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and stamped on the lower right front in Basic Black Ink.

The inside was finished by adhereing a piece of the Carried Away DSP to the middle part of the card.  The adhereing a second layer using Whisper White Card Stock.  I stamped the smallest ballon stamp in Peekaboo Peach.  I also finished the back of the balloon by die cutting matching stripes, gluing in place with the Fine Tip Glue Pen and trimming to fit with small paper snips.   img_6058_edited-1

This card is so colorful and cheerful, it would also make a nice get well card with the right sentiment.
