Project Share

Well, it's seems I'm running behind already.  I'm sure my New Year's wish was to be on time with things.  Some things I am, and some things, well ..... they're just as they are!  Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of projects from the Avid Inkers meet up night we had earlier this month.  I've already shared the Oh Hello card that I loved.  Well here is another project organised by one of our lovely members - Annette. 

So our first project was a cool card.  It was 3-D!  I think that's what you call it.  When you opened it up, it had a pop up.  Maybe it's called a pop-up card?  Whichever, it's really cool!!

We actually didn't start with the front of the card which I think is super cute.  I love the cute little Patterned Occasions stamp set from the new Sale-a-Bration stamp set.  Love the bandaid!

So you might have noticed a lot of Sale-a-Bration product here.  I've used the papers, ribbons and embossing folders!!

The best part of the card, we made first.  A pop-up!!

Isn't it cute!  It looks like a little tissue box and it has a little piece of tissue inside too.  The perfect card to make for someone to get well!!

And from a side on, inside view you can see the paper does fold back and the piece of tissue is still there!!

So here's what I used:
Stamps: Patterned Occasions
Papers: Sycamore Street DSP, Whisper White, Crumb Cake & Island Indigo CS
Inks: Tangerine Tango & Island Indigo
Other: Sycamore Street - Pool Party ribbon, Rhinestone, Big Shot & Vine Street Embossing Folder, Scallop Circle & Circle Punch

And don't forget your tissue!!
