I seriously have not used this Up, Up & Away stamp set (122757) as much as I would have liked and now it is retiring on May 30th. I will someday ride on a hot air balloon, I think they are just beautiful and romantic!
This card would work great for a graduate as it is right now for colleges and right around the corner for high schools.
The designer series paper along the right side is World Spectacular Designer Series Paper (126897) and looks great with the hot air balloons. It too is retiring so get it while you can HERE at my online store.
The square Very Vanilla card stock (101650) is 3 5/8 x 3 3/8" and then embossed with the Cloudy Day Textured Embossing Folder (127022). I then used the 3" Circle Orginals Die (122125) to cut the cirlce in the center.
The balloons are stamped with Calypso Coral ink (126983) and Island Indigo ink (126986). The Calypso Coral is stamped directly on to the paper and the Island Indigo balloon is stamped and then cut out and popped up with Stampin Dimensionals (104430). The greeting is punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch (119861).
I used the small size button from the Silver Basics Designer Buttons (129325) and placed a Calypso Coral brad from the 3/8" Designer Printed Brads (122940) which are retiring too and are on sale for 25% off HERE but ONLY while supplies last!!! I cut off the ends of the Calypso Coral brad with our trusty Craft & Rubbers Scissors (103179) with ease and then adhered it to the center of the button with a few Mini Glue Dots (103683). The Linen Thread (104199) is tied around the square a few times and then a knot is under the button. I left a the ends long so they hung under the button.
