Lift Me Up Birthday Trio

I had some bits and pieces of the Carried Away Designer Series Paper and matching cardstock on my craft table that were leftovers from other projects.   They were the starting point for these three birthday cards.

Those tiny bits became the paper piecing for the balloon, the hearts and the clouds.

The view-from-the-air pattern was my favorite from this pack.    So cute for a suspension card!
(TIP:  Metallic thread works well for the suspended element.  One strand is thin and it spins quickly when wound up and released.    Wind up the balloon before putting it in the envelope and it will spin when the recipient pulls it out.)

The DSP squares on this tall card were leftover from a sampler project I made.    The sentiment piece is die cut with one of the sections of the Up and Away Thinlits for something a little different.
