Damask Divas Blog Hop Balloon Ride

Welcome to the Damask Divas Blog Hop for May, 2014.  If you got here from Jamie’s post, then you are in the right place.  You can always go to the Damask Divas Group Blog to see the entire list and/or start at the beginning.

This month we are using the Close to my Heart paper pack “Balloon Ride.”  It is one of my favorites.  I have been wanting to make a box card and decided I would give it a go with this paper pack.  Melody Lane made the project available to her followers in Design Space so I was able to use my new Cricut Explore to do the cutting on the box.   I cut the balloons and clouds out by hand.  The rest of the decor is from embellishments I had on hand (La Belle Vie, Picture My Life, etc.).  The sentiment is from the CTMH stamp set “Give a Lift” and it also has cute balloons.  Next time I use this paper pack I will use the balloons in that stamp set too.
