How to Make

1.Begin by printing off the template, making a note of the measurements and drawing it onto an A4 sheet of Dovecraft white card stock.

2.With a craft knife, score and cut where indicated on your template on your A4 white card.

3.Cut a patterned sheet within the Simply Creative 6x6 Play Days paper pad to fit the left and right panels at the front of your card.

4.Choose a coordinating Play Days paper design and cut it down to cover the top panel on the front of your card. 

5.Turn your card over and with your craft knife, cut out the aperture.

6.With your card open and vertical, stick your chosen Simply Creative 6x6 paper design to cover the thinnest aperture on the top of your card. Cut a green sheet from the First Edition Textured card stock pad down to fit the size of your card ensuring it curves at the top to look like the top of a hill.

7.Die cut your Dovecraft Hot Air Balloon die onto a sheet of Dovecraft A4 Kraft card.

8.Adhere a piece of rainbow ombre paper from your Play Days paper pad to the back of your hot air balloon die cut. Cut off any excess from around the edge.

9.With Dovecraft Perma Fix tape, adhere a penny to the back of your die cut balloon and add a 3D foam pad to the centre of the penny.

10.Place the second penny on the inside of the card in between your slit and adhere the two pennies together.

11.Ensure that your hot air balloon doesn’t stick to the card and can move easily along the slit. Add 3D foam tape to the back, along the edges next to the slit. Adhere your card together.

TIP: Make sure that the foam tape isn’t too close to the penny slider mechanism.

12.Die cut the small flower within your Dovecraft Flowers and Leaves set, 3 times onto the ombre Play Days paper.Glue these to the front of your card, on the left hand side on your hill.

13.Stamp your Dovecraft ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment on the same paper as your flowers, cut out and adhere with 3D foam pads to the bottom right hand side of your card.
