Passover Stand Up Card

Good morning friends

Today's share is the card I made for our daughter and her little family to celebrate Passover. I just love this new Graphic 45 floral paper and how well it matched the peach card stock. Below is the card in the closed position, ready to pop into the envelope.

This is the card opened ... I did the words on the computer.

There is a little notch that cuts with the die - all the cutting and scoring is done for you with this die. When you fold the card along the front score lines, the notch holds it up for display.

Flip It Puppy Card

Good morning friends

It's Masculine Card Monday here on my blog, and I have a cute Flip-Its card to share today. My Dad is in a nursing home, and he enjoy's getting mail delivered to his room. Since he is a huge dog fan, it only made sense to use cute dog stickers on his card.

It's hard to see in the photos, but the plaid paper has silver foil accents, and the stickers have shiny, sparkly bits to them.

Here is a peek at the inside - I penned a short note to him there.  I noticed the paper was starting to lift off the card base in this photo, so glued it back down before I popped the card in the envelope.

Passover Card

Today's share is the Passover card I made for my parents to give to our middle daughter and her little family.  This was the first time I've made a Passover card, so I wasn't really sure what images to use. Finally I went with yellows (for Light and Love) and a butterfly for Spring.

Here is a peek at the inside:

C4C279 Think Spring Hybrid Card

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. Our hostess for March is Anja de Regt, and her Guest Designer is Andrea Murdock (My Stamping Heaven).

This is not what I intended to create for this challenge. I was thinking more along the lines of the Pop it Ups Garden Bench ... but the new Adirondack Chair die is stored on the same magnetic sheet as the Garden Bench, so I decided to use it instead.  I also used a digital scrapbooking kit and some graphics to create the card.

I added the printed and fussy cut flowers around the pop up Adirondack Chair but the rest was printed as a single piece.

I printed an extra piece of the cloud background and also of the green, to slip in behind the openings created by the Adirondack chair. I like the seamless look this gives. The chair was die cut again from white card stock, and adhered over the original one, which had the blue clouds on the top and the green polka dots on the seat and legs from the original cut.

I added Stickles to the banners and pink Glitter Dots to the flower centers.

All in all, I was happy with how this turned out. I still need to work on my sizing, as it can be tricky (for me) working from the computer screen and visualizing how it will print out to assemble a pop up card.  LOVE the Adirondack Chair - it's going to be so much fun to play with and it's so easy to create. Karen Burniston thought of everything - look at the embossed texture on the arms of the chair! 

This card is going to my Mother-In-Law for Mother's Day.

Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge.  We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C279.

Glitter glue on the butterfly body and flower centres gave it some sparkle and shine.

Gerbera Daisy Accordion Birthday Card

It's Throwback Thursday here on my blog, and I have an older Accordion card to share today. I made this for a friend's birthday last year.  I used an older Karen Burniston Sizzix Accordion die for this one, and lots of 3-d stickers. Ha - I also took lots of pictures!

I was free to use lots of embellishments on the card, as I was hand delivering it.

Shamrock Pull Card

Good morning friends

I had printed a couple of extra paper panels when I made my friends Birthday card (see HERE), so used them to make a surprise St. Patrick's Day card for my Mom. I don't usually send her a card for St. Patrick's Day but I know she loves to get Happy Mail.

I used the Spiral Circle Pull Card die for the card base, which is a Pop it Ups die by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I just happened to have some gold Washi Tape, so I added it along the fold.

I also decided to add a stamped, die cut dog to yesterday's Adirondack chair Pop Up. So cute!
