Balloon Adventure Pop Up Card

Hey guys, long time no see! I completely missed my Tuesday post, oh what a day that was! You know those alarm clocks with dual alarms...yeah, those ones! Well, I accidentally turned on the wrong alarm Monday night and needless to say, Tuesday morning I over-slept! I turned on my husbands "I worked a double shift, got home at 8am and need to get up and back out the door for the next shift" alarm which is set to go off at noon instead of my alarm that is set to go off at 4am. No, I didn't sleep until noon, but I did not get up until 6:45am (I should have been pulling into the hospital parking lot at that hour!)So needless to say, I was all messed up all day. I think the lack of coffee and the high speed in which my day took off, totally threw me off my game. So, as a result, I never made my way to my blog. Hopefully, it is worth the wait as I created this card by casing the new Occasions catalog. I just love this catalog and I love this set. It makes birthday celebrations so fun!

Supplies: 
Stamp Set: Balloon Adventures
Paper: Crushed Curry 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4"; Party Animal DSP cut 5 1/4" x 2 1/2"; Whisper White cut 3 3/4" square and another piece cut 8 1/4"  x 5 1/4" scored and folded at 4 1/8" (this is for the inside pop up) Scraps of Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Emerald Envy.
Ink: Pacific Point; Crushed Curry; Tangerine Tango; Emerald Envy
Misc: Emerald Envy 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits; Big Shot; Stampin' Dimensionals; Fast Fuse

Directions:
Adhere the DSP to the center of the card base, stamp the sentiment onto the Whisper White 3 3/4" square with Pacific Point ink, add the party confetti image using Crushed Curry to the bottom of the piece and stamp the balloon and string using the Tangerine Tango. Using the Striped Balloon thinlit, run a scrap piece of Tangerine Tango through the Big Shot and adhere this piece over the stamped Balloon image. Wrap the card base with the Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon and adhere the Stamped piece with Stampin' Dimensionals.
For the inside, Take the folded Whisper White piece and open it up, align the Balloon pop up thinlit arrow up on the fold mark and run through the Big Shot. This will create the pop up. Now, stamp the balloons lining up the stamp to the die cut images. I did Emerald Envy, Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point. Then cut a polka dot and a stripped balloon from scraps of Emerald Envy and Pacific Point cardstock and adhere them to the corresponding balloon. Stamp the banner and sentiment with Tangerine Tango ink. Adhere this piece to the inside of the card and attach the 2 1/8" square DSP pieces to the bottom of each Whisper White panel as shown in the photo below.
I hope you have enjoyed this card. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. I hope you all have a great day.
Happy Stamping,
Katrina
