In this month's release there is a new Hot Air Balloon Die. Lots of possibilities to cut and piece this back together in lots of fun ways. I kept it simple and just used the die plate to emboss a heavy white piece of paper. I cut it down to fit inside the middle of the fancy die I used for the card base.

 Using a heavier weight paper to emboss gives you a deeper impression and helps to prevent the die from accidentally cutting through in spots.

On the inside I added the new matching sentiment Let your Dreams Soar. I loved how beautifully this die embossed! I cut the die for the card base out of heavier weight paper too, which gives it a little more oomph to stand up.
