So Very Much, Balloon Pop-up Thinlits, Thank You Card, 2017 Sale-a-Bration

Today I needed to make a thank you card for a birthday gift I had received.  I'm a little late in getting it out but it's now done and ready to go in the mail tomorrow. 

For the base I used a folded half sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  The next layer is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Watermelon Wonder.  And on top is a 3-3/8" x 5" piece of Whisper white.

First I stamped the "thank you" but I should have removed it over to the right and down a little bit more.  Then I die cut the balloons and bows.  I used Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay for them.  The "Thank You" is from the "So Very Much" Sale-a-Bration set. 

I wrapped a piece of wet Baker's Twine around a toothpick and let it dry.  I cut it in half and taped it behind the balloon.  Oh, I did forget to mention, I took the Balloon Punch and punched out the large Balloon to go behind the die cut balloons. Having them open didn't look quite right.   

I set the balloons in place using Dimensionals.

It's a pretty easy card to make and the "T" on the Thank you would have shown up more had I moved the image over about 3/8" of an inch.  But you can still see that it reads "Thank You", so mission accomplished!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Hello, love the card and bird--alas I do not often buy the bundle so fussy cut. It is nice that you show us the cards, say where idea came from and let us save to pinterest---thanks for being so generous with your craft.
