MCT 55th Edition Sneak Peek #4

It's our last day of My Creative Time's 55th Edition Sneak Peeks!  Have you been loving these sets as much as I have?  Today we are sneaking the new Circle Balloons, which is a fabulous set of balloon dies, and Script Words, a gorgeous little set of sentiments which is actually a freebie for the first 150 shoppers beginning tomorrow at 8 AM PST!

I decided to try something new for me with this card - I used Papertrey Ink's clear cardstock for my card base!  I love how it turned out, and it really wasn't too hard to do.  I just had to be sure to cut out two of everything so that I could put each cut on both sides of the cardstock, hiding the adhesive in between.  Circle Balloons contains four balloon dies, and I used the two smaller ones on my card, in addition to the "string" die.  The largest balloon die in the set is 4 1/2" in diameter; it could be fun to make a balloon shaped card with it!

For my clouds at the base of my card, I used one of the More Stitched Edges dies.  I also used the cloud die from You Are My Sunshine on the back part of the card, so you can see through to it.  The sweet sentiment on the clouds is from Script Words.  It's one of three in the set!
