Another Year Older

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by!  It is our sons birthday today - hard to believe he is 25 - time certainly flies!  I am sharing the card I created for him - very quickly I might add.

I used a retired Spellbinders 3D Embossing Folder and Kaisercraft patterned paper from the Antiquities Collection.  Once embossed the paper has been lightly sanded to highlight the embossed cogs.  Next I have drawn around the cogs using a White Gel Pen.  The card front has been popped up onto a slightly larger card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 6" x 4" Adhesive Foam Sheets - it gives dimension but not as much as

The Hot Air Balloons have been cut using a Kaisercraft Die and popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 6" x 4" Adhesive Foam Sheets that have been trimmed to size. The sentiment is from Little Birdie Crafts, with the words being cut out and popped up across the Hot Air Balloons; the second part of the sentiment has been computer generated and adhered overlapping onto the cloud.  The fabulous Chipboard is also from Little Birdie Crafts.

The Pop Up sentiment is such a lovely surprise when the card is opened, I have used the Karen Burniston Katherine Label Pop Up for the inside label and Pop Up and Twist Mechanism. The sentiment is from  Little Birdie Crafts,  The chipboard cloud is from an adorable little set my DH got me from - of all places - Bunnings.

You can find Karen's Video Tutorial HERE - it is so easy to follow.
