Another Pinwheel Card - for a 100th Birthday

This time I used the English Garden DSP, and decorated the bellyband with pop up balloons that lay flat for mailing.

The balloons were made using the stamp set "Balloon Celebration" stamping first in Rose Red and than with Cherry Cobbler ink.  They were punched using the Balloon Bouquet punch, a coiled thin wire was hot glued to the back of each balloon.
On the front of each balloon was each of the letter for 100, die cut in gold glimmer paper,
using the retired Timeless type Alphabet Junior Sizzlet" die.

This shows the attachment of the balloons to the bellyband around the folded card.

Close up of the Bellyband shows the rose made using the Blossom Petal Punch.  The Sentiment was stamped in Rose Red ink and is from the stamp set "Balloon Celebration"

After the former picture was taken I realized a bit of green was needed on the belly band, so I die cut a leaf from the Botanical Blooms Builder framelits.

The inside was stamped using the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  The flowers were coloured with Rose Red ink and blender pen. The colour was accented with Cherry Cobbler ink.
