Hello Everyone!!!
I’m Anuja from Bangalore, this is my first post as a Guest Designer for Lulupu.Started with ORIGAMI when I was small, later I experimented with all types of crafts such as Doll making , Quilling , card making , Jewelry making , Mixed media, Altered art , etc. A year back I started my blog to showcase the ideas as well as to join various challenges in the blogging world.
Today I was asked to make a macho card with Distress inks to go along with the challenge of this month.
Here’s my step by step Hot Air Balloon Card

Started with Cobalt blue DCWV card 4 ¼ by 5 ½.
Using the pattern paper created the tag and distressed them with vintage ink. Small tag (2 ¾ x 1 ½) Big tag (3 ¾ x 1 7/8 ).

Stamp and Die from Papertreyink.To make the yellow balloon, I stuck five balloons to together so that it looks like a chipboard diecut. For the red balloon fold the diecut into half and stick it side by side to get that look…

To get that Spiral I used 

Thanks to the Lulupu team for giving me this opportunity.

Hope you all liked it!!!!
