:: it's about the journey ::

Hi!  It's Dona (orange gearle), back with a card I made for The Rubber Cafe, featuring the Take Flight Creative Cafe Kit and the bonus add-on stamp set, Winging It.

For the base I used the deep teal card stock, cut and folded to 5 & 1/2" by 4&1/4".

Next, I found all the "blue-greens" in the Carta Bella patterned papers and cut up a bunch of triangles -- various sizes.  I did the same with the shimmery, cream card stock. Then I glued them down with Scrap Happy glue in a sort of mosaic pattern.  

I got out the hot air balloon stamp from the "Soaring Above" stamp set included in the kit, some more of that teal card stock, and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the balloon twice.  I fussy cut out one of the balloons and then grabbed some 3D foam squares and added it to the polka dot parts of the balloon (only in the middle).  

Next I took the second balloon that I stamped and fussy cut around just the polka dot parts.  I added those over the top of the foam squares, and also used some Scrap Happy Glue to glue the edges down.  I wanted to create an effect that looked like the balloon was popping off the card in a spherical manner!  

I cut out a tag from the shimmery card stock (freehand but you could trace one from your stash) and added the sentiment from the "Soaring Above" stamp set, included in the kit, Queen & Co. bling, a little ribbon and called it done!
