Double D Balloons

Our challenge at Double D Challenge Blog is all about balloons.

I needed a birthday card so I made this fun pop-up box card using  balloons.  I used Stampin' Up Balloon Adventure dies and balloon punch for the balloons.  The base of the card was created with Spellbinders pop up die.  I could not get a good picture of the card, but many of the balloons were cut from glitter paper so there is a lot of sparkle and shine.  Most of us who make cards are familiar with these cards, but when I send them to friends who are not card makers, they are  thrilled with this fun fancy fold.  Sometimes I forget what is common to me is special to them.  

If you play along you can  win this fun die from Elizabeth Craft Design.

Dies R Us Birthday

It is already the middle of January which means it is time for another challenge at DIES R US CHALLENGE BLOG.  I always need birthday cards so this is a perfect challenge for me. 
A special friend of mine, Donna Phelan, has a birthday on December the 25th.  You can find her amazing designs HERE. Her favorite color is sunshine yellow so I sent her this colorful card.  This is also a practical gift.  There is a monthly calendar, post it notes, and a pen.  I made several of this type of card for December, January and February birthdays. I love a card that has a purpose.  I might do a few more designs for March and April birthdays. 

These are the dies I used for this project.  They are  available at the DIES R US STORE.
