Vintage Kinetic Hot Air Balloon Card

I always find it a pleasant surprise to find a kinetic element on a card. My hot air balloon is free hanging and; therefore, can swing when the card is handled. Challenge yourself to add something a bit unexpected to your project like a hinged element, wiggly eyes, or a shaker filled with sequins. All this month, you will find more inspiration from the BPM Design Team about clever ways to add different types of  movement to your projects.

BPM Stamps:
Hot Air Balloon with Wooden Barrel Basket Rubber Stamp
Life is Not About Waiting For the Storm to Pass Sentiment
Steampunk Devil Collage Stamp

1.  Stamp the hot air balloon onto white card stock using black ink.

2. Next, stamp a balloon onto transparency using permanent ink and set aside to thoroughly dry.


3. Color the paper image using a sponge applicator.
(Time Saver TIP: The coloring does not need to stay within the lines since the image will be cut out.)

4.  Next, fussy cut to separate the balloon, people, and basket.

5. Reassemble the pieces of the hot air balloon over the transparent image and adhere with foam tape.  Use a white gel pen to add fine details to the hot air balloon.

6.  Take a craft card base and stamp along the edges with the clocks & newsprint design using blue ink. Lightly ink the edge of the card base with brown ink to give it an aged appearance.

7.  Stamp the sentiment with black ink onto the lower right corner of the cream cardstock. Then antique the edge of the paper by gently inking the edges of the sentiment with brown ink.  To give the card a kinetic element, attach twine to the top of the hot air balloon. Adhere the other end to the back of the stamped sentiment so the hot air balloon embellishment hangs freely.  Matte with maroon card stock. Attach the matted hot air balloon element to the middle of the card base.
