Wowie Zowie!


I'm getting a great response to this card I created in the middle of the night - when I couldn't sleep.

This is a hinge card. You get to see the card closed and open in the same photo. Am I tricky, or what? The top of the card just turns up so you can see the inside (the message once I figure out who to send it to). It hinges at the flower on the left with a brad through it. I also like the top edge looking like a fence and the flowers going down behind it when it is closed. The main image was stamped and embossed before adding a little color with a blender pen and the ink from the lid of the pad. I also cut out two small flowers from the dp and glued one on the inside and the other is popped up with a dimensional over the flower on the main image.

So, do you like it? Don't tell me if you don't. I only want to hear the positive! LOL ; )

Wowie, Zowie is right my friend! This is absolutely so clever and a fabulous idea. I feel bad that you had to get up in the middle of the night to do it. Hope you get some sleep tonight! Great card!

I love your card! What a great idea. (I have to admit, I'm going to have to see if I'm bright enough to try and make one). :)
