Felt & hot air balloons


Have I mentioned that I love my Big Shot? I knew when I bought it I wanted to cut materials other than paper, but I had no idea exactly how fun it was going to be. I've had the Big Shot for nearly a year now, and felt is by far my favorite material to play with.


I cut these felt hot air balloons using the Up, Up & Away die set from Papertrey Ink. The sticker is from SRM stickers and the twine from The Twinery.


I am playing along today with the Play Date Cafe. This summer inspired color scheme screams 80's to me—how fun! I was totally drawn to it.

Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend, and thanks for stopping by here today. Really appreciate it! :)

Love this card! Good to know that the big shot is so versatile. The only die cutter that I have is the Cuttlebug...and only because I won it at a crop! Thanks for sharing!
