Happy Wednesday, Good Friends! Hope your week is going well. I thought perhaps that we had finally hit spring here in my neck of the woods, but she seems to be hiding again. It’s grey and gloomy once again, and I am so ready for real spring to arrive. So I thought I’d pretend a bit today with a bright and cheery spring flower card that I made this week for the Therm O Web blog.
For something a bit different than my norm, I went with an interactive card design made of a pocket and an insert. Love that extra little surprise the recipient will find when they pull on the cloud tab. And the belly band slips off, and is re-usable, too.
There’s something about this Waffle Flower Bear & Bird stamp set that always makes me smile. This time, I gave the bear a snow cone to hold that was fussy cut from my patterned papers, and created a little outdoor picnic scene for these good friends to enjoy.
I put together a matching insert using coordinating papers from the Simple Stories Summer Days kit. A fussy cut cloud added to the top of the card acts as the pull tab. Therm O Web GinaK Designs dies were used to frame the sentiment and the belly band scene. And of course I used some deco foil to accent that cool GinaK Foil-Mates greeting.
I always love a good side view of deco foil to really show off it’s beautiful shine. I used three colors of foil here that were a great match to my papers, and it’s really easy to do. I’ve got a tutorial for that, as well as complete instructions for creating this pocket design, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!
