My Creative Time 55th Edition Release Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!!
Welcome to My Creative Time's 54th Edition release blog hop! If you have arrived from the super talented Nikki's blog, then you are on the right track. If you would like to start at the beginning, click here.
Today's card was made with the new Greatest Handyman Set and the Circle Balloon Dies. I thought it would be fun to make a large balloon shaped card with the largest balloon die. I stamped the tool stamps to create a pattern on the kraft paper. The gift card was placed in the Tag Gift Pocket Die that I stamped it with the Stripey Background II Stamp and a sentiment from the Greatest Handyman Set. I attached it to the front of the card and then tied on a small pieces of twine for fun.
