Above The Clouds - 6" Square Card - Video Tutorial

In today's Video I show you how to create these 6" square cards using the Above The Clouds stamp set and coordinating punch.

I also show you how to create the fabulous 3D Hot Air Balloon!

Another thing I show you in the Video is how to create a 6" square card even if you haven't got any 12" cardstock to use :o)

This was my 'test' card :o) I was really happy with how it turned out, so didn't actually change it much when I did the Video.

The papers are all from the Bird Ballad 12" Designer Series Paper pack and I took the colour scheme from them.

I didn't used any of the sentiments from the Above the Clouds set because I needed something smaller to fit on my punched panel. Instead I used a sentiment from the Free As A Bird set.

I changed up the papers for this second card using the 6" Subtles paper stack. I did keep with the colour scheme from the Bird Ballad papers though.

It's quite a simple card really. I embossed the stamped panel using the Subtles Folder ... this is still my favourite folder!

This time I chose a more generic sentiment from the A Good Man stamp set and I kept with this one for my Video card too.

This is the card I created in the Video. The stamped panel is lightly sponged with Pool Party ink but the areas around the sets of little Balloons are left white. I thought this gave the feeling of a light cloudy sky :o) Again, I used the Bird Ballad papers for this one.

The main difference between this one and my 'test' card is that I changed the sentiment but also added an extra panel in my Hot Air Balloon. This makes it a little fuller but also enables it to fold down flatter. If you wanted to, you could fit this one inside an envelope.

I used the Story Label punch for the sentiment mats. If you haven't got this one you could use any of the Label punches or even the Tailored Tag punch. 

Here is the Video ...
