Step 1: Trim a piece of Stark White Card stock measuring 4 x 5¼. Then, use the Polka Dot stencil to create a background with Clear Skies, Breakup Blues, and No Diving inks. Next, apply Breakup Blue Lunar Paste using the stencil with the smaller dots.

Step 3: Trim another piece of Stark White Card stock measuring 4 x 5¼ that will be used as the front panel piece to an A2 card base. Then, use the 5x6 acrylic block and stamps from the Sound Wave background to stamp a few waves. Use Slippery and Wet and Guppy inks to stamp the images.

Step 7: Next, grab the die cut circles from step 2 and apply small dabs of glue to cluster them together like a bunch of balloons. Then, apply adhesive foam to the back of the cluster to add dimension, and tape them to the front of the panel piece.

Step 8: Use a black pen to draw some strings from the balloons to one of the paws of the cat image. This will make it look the cat is holding the balloons.
