This project felt like perfect timing We’ll be doing some traveling coming up this year, and I was feeling inspired to create a card that reflects the fun of getting out and seeing the world. This card features a hot air balloon, taking off to explore the skies. This was a pretty simple DIY card because it incorporates some basic techniques, but simplicity can also offer beauty without feeling overwhelming.
Below is a video tutorial and a list of materials used. Let me know what you think, or if you have any questions by commenting on the YouTube video or at the bottom of this post!
