"Especially for You"

Here is another card we did in class. I found this cute pocket die in my stack and had to incorporate it in one class project at least. Not only will the die cut the elegant flowers and swirls, oh no, it also cuts areas on the flowers so you can lift different pedals up. I know, ones you put it in an envelope they will be flat again, but in case you hand deliver the card...well it makes them stand out, don't you think?

We used a regular white cardstock base for the card. We cut the "Flaxen"(X5771) cardstock from Close to My Heart at 4" x 5 1/4" and placed it in the center of the card base front. The pieces of striped paper is from the CTMH paper pack "Whimsy Fundamentals" (Z3255) and cut at 3" x 4". We adhered it to the top left corner leaving an 1/8" gap showing the cardstock. 

The corner flower die-cut was cut from white cardstock and we did lift the pedals before we adhered the cut to the lower right corner of the card front. Adhesive was only applied to the right and bottom side of the die-cut, so it would create a pocket open on the left and top. 

We added a small package of flower seeds in it, but you might as well use it for tickets (movies, theater, concert etc) or gift cards.

The phrase was stamped on a tag cut with the Cricut. A piece of ribbon was folded in half and placed under the tag before we adhered the tag on foam dots to the top left of the card. 

Two butterflies cut from design paper were added as decoration and a few rhinestones finishing this card off....

Oh wait, do decorate the inside of the card we used the corresponding stamp set and some "Flaxen" and "Canary" ink to stamp the image on the inside.

Stay tuned for more card ideas to come....
