Global Design Project #GDP085

Global Design Project #085 is a colour challenge. We were to use 3 of the retiring In Colours just to make us even more sad about saying goodbye to these lovely colours.

I have chosen Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon for my project. Also sad to see go is the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set and the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies which are also on the Retirement List.
Although the dies are designed to use as a pop-up card as shown further on in this post the dies are really versatile and can be used in so many other ways.
I have made a card with a 'see-through' front and a treat box containing Hershey Chocolate nuggets for this weeks project.


The cute treat box containing Hersey's chocolates again using the Balloon pop-Up Thinlits Dies matches perfectly with the card. YouTube instructions for this box designed by Kelly Acheson can be found here

Below are two of my versions of  Pop-Up cards for which the dies were designed.

A girly Pop-Up card for my Granddaughter's 10th Birthday

Plus a boys version with a matching gift card holder I made for my Grandson.

Both got a thrill out of the surprise pop-up when they opened the card.
