A Card in a Card

Hello there!  I hope you had a great weekend?  I know I could have used an extra day as my hubby worked all weekend. That hour we lost with daylight savings messed me up a little too.  How does one hour change everything?  Anyhow, I have a card in a card with a pop up surprise that I designed for my crafting group as it my turn to teach a tuturial this month.  I used a bunch of different companies to make one great card.

Basically I made an A2 card, then made another card base an inch shorter on each dimension for the inside.  On the inside card I created a rail that pops up with a few butterflies to make the card even more fun. As an added fun touch I embossed aluminum foil and then used magic lustre to do faux leafing on it.   If you want more info, please feel free to contact me.

Products used:  white/black/purple/teal card stock, Stampin Up Beautiful Butterfly dies, Sizzix You are Loved stamp set, Unity Stamp co Good Things With Wings stamp set, Steampunk Butterfly Background stamp (given to me without packaging) Magic Lustre brilliant turquoise, aluminum foil, Fun Stampers Journey black licorice ink, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Stickles purple/teal, white half backed pearls
