Rectangle Pull Card - Rocky

Good morning friends

I have another Rectangle Pull Card to share today ... I told you it was becoming a favourite. You know I love my Z-fold cards! The Rectangle Pull Card is one of the new CHA releases by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Actually I used several of her new dies for this fun card.

This Palm Tree die is getting lots of use from the whole Design Team!   You can see one of the new Character dies peeking above the rectangle while the card is in the closed position ...

And he spins up as the card is pulled open. SO fun.

The pail and shovel are new dies as well, and I added a cloud from the All Seasons Tree. To make the happy face on the cloud, I used the leftover red smile from when I cut Rocky the Crab. I cut another pair of Rocky's eyes out of black card stock, this time using the pupil portion for the cloud's eyes.

I did add a reinforcing strip to the back of the card, on both the left and right sides. In fact, I seem to do this on most of the patterned paper Rectangle Pull Cards I make. The patterned paper is rarely as sturdy as card stock, and adding this extra layer on each side gives the card stability.

Rocky the Crab is sporting a party hat from the Props 2 Party die set, also by Karen Burniston. Rocky is such a fun character ... I have to stop myself from using him on all my cards these days.
