I've loved this hot air balloon since the first second I saw it in the "Everyday Pop Up Cards" cricut book. For this card I cut it at 4 1/4" high to fit on my 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.
The back ground hills and sun are cut at 4 1/4" wide from "Country Life". I inked all the edges of the hills and the sun using green or orange ink and my finger dauber.
I printed this adorable banner with the senitment and "pinafore" font. The cut it from the "Wedding" cricut solutions cart sized to 1 1/4" (to fit on the balloon), I then fit the sentiment to the banner.
The little clouds are from "April Showers" cut at 1 1/2" and 1", I inked those with blue ink as well as the background paper.
The inside would look naked with little of scraps of the patterned paper. :)
The blue polka-dot paper I used for the sky is a scrap of Heidi Grace paper, the starry balloon is from a DCWV stack called K&Co. Party stack. The rest is from my scrap bin. The last couple of things I did with this card is adding the white gel pen stitches and outlining the clouds, balloon and blue sky layer with Stardust Stickles.
