What do we have here? Well it happens to be a card I made for Heartfelt Creations with a Couture Creations Embossing folder from the World Fair Collection called Ascension. I really would have liked to try my hand at steampunk with this, but I will another time for sure. This embossing folder really sparked my creative interest.
To create this, I just embossed the balloon on designer paper (which is the teal underneath) and white paper. I cut the balloon out and with my Martha Stewart craft night I cut out some of the panels in the balloon. to get the round curved effect on the balloon I used varying degrees of thickness of foam squares under it and mounted on the teal balloon. Then I just ran pearls around the whole thing. Here is what I used to create this:

HCD 716 Layered Elegant Swirl Die
HCD 713 Decorative Lace Border Die
HCD 703 Daisy Patch Die

Product ID: 354810 Spellbinders Classic Scallop Circle Large
Other: Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Recollection Pearls, Crochet thread,Stardust Stickles, Ribbon, White and Black Cardstock, Designer Paper.
This was fun to make. I really enjoyed putting this together. It was different. Hope you have a great day and a wonderful day to craft!

Carol, this is so pretty. Reminds me of the days when I was on a Hot Air Balloon team in NM. We would launch the balloon early in the morning in Albuquerque and some times there would be a sky almost this color and some mist. There were no flowers though - only tumbleweeds. Of course, I love, love this card and wish I had made it myself. Viewing it was a pleasure. Hugz to you sweet girl!!!

Now, come again on that description. I didn't quite get even close to understanding how you made this card Bearzi. It is so fabulous. All the embossing, cutting, diecuts, pearl swirls, layers - it's just awesome my friend. I hope your blog is okay as I see someone said it has been spammed. I really hope not. Hugs!
