A different kind of card May 25, 2011

Hello there! Today I wanted to share with you a card that I’ve been “sitting” on for quite awhile (I made it sometime last year). I originally had the grand idea of submitting it to a magazine, but have since decided that’s a bit out of my league! 🙂 So, here it is…

A little boring you say? But wait…

It pops open to reveal a a great surprise!

A view from the top. This was actually the second version of this card that I made. For this one I stamped a sheet of whisper white cardstock with PTI background basics Polka Dots II, in choc chip ink. Then used my template to cut out the card. Once it was folded and adhered together I decorated it using SU! Party Heart, Crazy for cupcakes and the little cup cake from Short and Sweet. I’ve white embossed the images on the choc chip cardstock. The Happy Birthday sentiment on the top flap is from PTI Just the Ticket stamp set.

The original version used much bolder colours

For this one I used SU! Tangerine tango card stock as the base card and built on that vibrant colour with the retired Washington apple DSP. There’s also a bit of Riding Hood Red cardstock, Tangerine Tango DSP (a retired version), and some (retired) kiwi kiss DSP. I prefer the brightness of this card, but when I was thinking about submission I read that all products used needed to be current, and the DSP papers I was using had just finished, so were no longer current 😦 Hence why I made the second chocolate card.

The thing with this one though, is that it was a guinea pig card, so it has a few “issues”, but that’s ok.

What new cards have you made lately?

Happy crafting!
