DIRECTIONS:

“HOPE" Card
1.
Take a sheet of white cardstock; score and fold it in half to create a 6'x12' folded piece. Trace a cloud shape onto the page, starting and ending on the fold. Cut this out, leaving the fold intact. This will be the card base. Ink around all edges.
2. Cut a sun shape from the yellow cardstock sheet. Adhere this to the right of the fold on the front face of the card.
3. Select a print from the stack. Cut out 4 cloud shapes, each in a different size and/or shape. Adhere them to the front of the card, adding adhesive foam squares under 3 of them for additional dimension.
4. Cut a 4'x1/2' strip of white cardstock. Cut a “V" into the shorter ends of the strip to give it the appearance of a banner and then ink around all sides. Punch the word “HOPE" on the right side of the strip. Adhere this horizontally to the bottom area of the card.
5. Select 3 more prints from the stack. Cut and assemble 2 hot air balloons in varying sizes, using each print on a different layer of the balloons, as well as adhesive foam squares to adhere in place. Adhere them to the front of the card where desired.
6. Embellish the card with assorted rhinestones.

“JOY" Card
1.
Cut a piece of white cardstock to 10'x7'. Score and fold this in half to create a 5'x7' card. Ink around all edges.
2. Select a print from the stack and cut a rectangle measuring 4-1/2'x6-1/2'. Cut out several clouds in the rectangle and then adhere it to the center of the front face of the card using adhesive foam squares.
3. Cut out a sun from the yellow cardstock sheet. Adhere this to the top, center area of the card.
4. Select 3 prints from the stack. Cut out a medium-sized hot air balloon, using each print on a different layer of the balloon. Ink around the edges of each piece. Assemble them together, using adhesive foam squares between each layer for added dimension.
5. Before adhering the balloon to the front of the card, cut a 4'x1/2' strip of white cardstock. Cut a “V" into the shorter ends of the strip to give it the appearance of a banner. Ink around all sides, and then punch the word “JOY" into the right side of the strip. Pleat the banner as needed and attach in place across the front of the balloon. Adhere the grouping to the card where desired.
6. Embellish the card with assorted rhinestones.

“LOVE" Card
1. Take a sheet of white cardstock; score and fold it in half to create a 6x12 folded piece. Trace a hot air balloon shape onto the cardstock, beginning and ending on the fold. Cut this out, leaving the fold intact to make it a card. Ink around all sides.
2. Select 4 prints from the stack. Cut out the various layers for the front of the hot air balloon from the first 2 prints. Ink around all sides and adhere in place.
3. Cut out 3 cloud shapes from the next print; adhere them in place on opposite sides of the balloon to give the feeling of floating in air.
4. Cut out a mini banner from the final print. Ink around all sides and adhere it in place across the center of the balloon.
5. Cut out a sun shape from the yellow cardstock sheet. Ink around all sides and adhere it in place near the top of the balloon.
6. Cut a 1/2'x4' strip of white cardstock. Cut a “V" into the shorter ends, giving it the appearance of a banner. Ink around all sides of the strip. Punch the letters “LOVE" on the right side of the strip and then adhere it in place on the top of the balloon as shown, folding as needed.
7. Embellish with rhinestones.
