Confetti Celebration and Balloon Builders Window Sheet Card using #GDP045

I have been inspired by both Jennifer McGuire and Wendy Cranford's Window Sheets cards over the last bit. They really intimidated me but I bit the bullet and kept it really really simple and incorporated this weeks Global Design Project # 045 Colour Challenge 

To start the card I took one of our 12x12 Window Sheets and trimmed it to a card front size  the scored and folded it in half. Next I cut 4 pieces of Whisper White card stock and trimmed it to the width of the card and approx 2.5" tall. I took one of these pieces to decorate for the card front I used the Confetti Celebration stamp set using Basic Black Archival Ink I stamped the Garland and Time to Party Sentiment, I also stamped the Happy Birthday on one of the other pieces for the inside as well. Using a Smokey Slate and Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Markers I coloured the garland and both sentiments. I stamped two balloons from the Balloon Builder stamp set one in Smokey Slate and Melon Mambo Ink and punched them out using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and also two plain white balloons for later. To stamp the YAY from the Confetti Celebration stamp set I took a piece of Vellum and stamped it with Melon Mambo Ink, I did find it difficult to get the image solid on the vellum so used my Blender Pen to smooth it out, dried the ink with my Heat Tool and trimmed it out using my scissors and adhered it to the front panel using a few drops of TomBow Multipurpose Glue. Next I stamped the two balloon strings with the String stamp from Balloon Builder stamp set in Staz On ink directly onto the front of the Window Sheet being careful not to wobble as it is such a slick surface. Now to assemble all the pieces I started with the Whisper White pieces starting with the front piece lining it up at the bottom of the window sheet and adding another on the inside to cover the adhesive and repeated this for the other flap as well. I added the balloons offset to the front of the card bast and covered them on the inside with the blank balloons. The last 2 finishing touches I added Clear Wink Of Stella to the garland and balloons and a thin strip of Silver Glimmer paper to the top of each side of the card for a POP.
