Balloon popup surprise card

Why not surprise your friends by creating a card using the Stampin' Up! Balloon Adventures bundle which includes the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Balloon Popup Thinlits dies.

The front of the card looks innocent enough....

However, opening the card gives the recipient a surprise as the centrepiece pops out.

For the front of the card, I started with a Stampin' Up! Pacific Point card base and added a some of the Party Animal Designer Series Paper at the bottom of the card.  I then stamped the birthday sentiment from the Balloon Adventures stamp set onto some Whisper White card stock and added it to the front of the card too.  I stamped the balloons using the same colour ink onto matching card stock and punched them out using the Balloon Bouquet punch.  Some twine and enamel shapes completes the front of the card.

For the inside of the card, I used the Balloon Pop-up thinlits on a piece of Whisper White 1cm smaller than the card base to diecut the centre focal piece.  Balloons were stamped or diecut and added to the centre piece.  A small layer of Party Animal Designer Series Paper was also added to the sides of the popup centre piece.  Streamers and the Happy Birthday sentiment were stamped on the inside too.  The final touch of a metallic party hat from the Party Animal Embellishments completes the card.
