Avocado Arts + Hot Air Balloons

      Hey there friends! It's sneak peak day for next month's release from Avocado Arts. I'm here with the rest of the Pit Crew to share with you ideas on how you can combine this month's current set, Bold Celebrations with next month's release which is super duper cute! Next month's set is so fresh and fun, definitely one to add to your collection! So, without further ado, here's today's card.
I used my Silhouette to die cut the hot air balloons from cardstock and then die cut it multiply times from patterned paper. Because these balloons are cut files you can flip them, rotate them and and angle them in your electronic die cutting machine. I layered the flag banner die cut to the balloon die cut and stamped the image on one hot air balloon.
I then adhered the die cut hot air balloons to the negative cut outs of the cardstock and adhered the cardstock panel to the card with foam tape.  

The sentiment is a combination of two stamps. I stamped Celebrate from Bold Celebrations and  the perfect day from next month's release. The bottom edge is stamped with the polka dots from Bold Celebrations.

Well, that's it for me today! Make sure to stop by the other Pit Crew blogs for amazingly creative and inspiring ideas!
