One of the ladies in a Yahoo group I belong to gives us a link each week on new or interesting card making techniques. The most recent one was for a Pop-Up Balloon Card that was posted on You Tube. This card was so much fun to make and it didn't take much time at all.

This would make a fantastic kids card, or you could make heart-shaped balloons and make it a Valentine's Day card, or shamrock shaped balloons, or pumpkin face balloons ... you get the idea!

You should see me right now, I'm like a little kid shaking the card to watch the balloons flip back and forth. Cards are just so much more fun when they are interactive. Here's the link to the video in case you want to give it a go:


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thanks ladies for the sweet comments! Elenor, I used the plastic case that my Nestabilities came in since the plastic was very sturdy.

Mag ik vragen welke ballonnen je hebt gebruikt.

Hi Yvonne! To answer your question, I used a Sizzix die to cut out the balloons.

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments!
