Wonderful Wednesday at Exploring Cricut

Thanks for joining me today! Today's project for Wonderful Wednesday at Exploring Cricut uses the cartridge Wild Card 2, the hot air balloon on page 57.

Supplies: Blue cardstock, dark brown cardstock,  white w/blue dots paper, silver shimmer paper (Wausau), CoOrdinations Chocolate Box blue, Studio G brown ink, Cardz TV "Happy Days" sentiment, Cuttlebug Embossing folder "Charles" chevron

This card was cut at 5 1/2", and you can find all the cuts on page 57. I didn't add one of the layers (the balloon & swag combo) because I really like the brown and silver together. I did use the CoOrdinations for the balloon swag and basket, embossed with the chevron embossing folder, then sanded to bring up the light blue. Stamped the sentiment in brown ink, then attached the paper a little offset so the clouds have a shadow effect.

I hope you enjoyed this!
