Dad's Birthday Card Part Two

 First I would like to say that my dad is 83 not 84 like I put in his card.

I used MME Lost and Found 2 for the inside of this card. And Karen Burniston Pop-in-Cut Die. The clouds are made with sizzix cloud die, and the hot air balloon (dad thought it was a Christmas ornament) was made with Everyday Pop-Up cards (cricut cart). The mustache tape is from Teresa Collins He Said She Said line. And the cupcake and 84 stickers are from Authentique.
I tried to make a spinner card to make the hot air balloon look like it was floating away. You can find the directions to make this HERE.
My balloon did not float vary well, I think I made it backwards, but I did get it to float. Karen makes everything look so easy. I'll have to give it another try. At a later date!
My motto is if you don't succeed try try again.

Thanks for reading and have a crafty day!

  1. Kristi, bravo for giving the spinner a try! And yes, you did put it in backwards, but it looks awesome! And I think you could just move the connection to the other side . . . hard for me to see the mechanism in the photos . . . but this looks like a little tweak will get that balloon spinning behind the PNC label. Love this card!
