Say it with Balloons!

Morning all.
As it's Tuesday it is time for a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we would like to see cards that have -


So, sliders, waterfall, tabs, you name it it's all over to you.
I went with an exploding box card for my inspiration project.

I made this awhile ago for a commission for a friend of my daughters after she saw one of my other cards. This uses die cut balloons which are attached to thin strips of acetate that move around when the card is opened and when there is air movement. It is quite an easy thing to achieve but has a great impact on the recipient! 
I cut thin strips of acetate, mine came from some waste packaging, which are then sandwiched between two die cut balloons, then stuck to the strips across the center of the box card. This one was made with offcuts  of glitter and shiny card in the recipients favourite colours.
As well as the balloons, I added some fussy cut explosion stamps by Uniko and trimmed the base with EF embossed panels and the name and age cut with MFT dies.

What will you create, we'd love to see. For more inspiration, please check out the rest of the team here.
