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.
