The above card is one that I made for our son Paul's 40th birthday. The movie "UP" had just come out...so I thought that the balloon theme would be kind of fun.
The balloons were each made one at at time and each one had gold thread attached to it. It was a little bit of a challenge trying to figure out the placement so that they would balance when being tied to the numbers. It finally came together...and our son was quite pleased with it.
I used assorted "Stampin' Up" coloured card stock. I made a cloud template out of scrap card stock and sponged the cloud background randomly to achieve the above look. My trusty Cricut machine was used for the numbers and balloons. The card size is 5"x7". It's a little larger than I usually like to make...but with.. ALL.. of those balloons...it was necessary (lol)!
