Pop-Out Card

I am not usually a fancy folds kind of cardmaker, but I saw this on Facebook and had to give it  a try:

It's a "Pop Out" card and I found a very easy to follow tutorial on the Craftwork Cards blog, written by a crafter named Hazel.

Here are a few other views of the card:

For my inside sentiment/image, I used this great set from DigiStamp Boutique: Flower and heart circles. I wanted something soft and round with all of those sharp angles. My papers are an assortment of SU! (green), Creative Memories (pink floral/swirl) and Penny Lane by My Minds Eye (stripe).

The finished card is pretty large (6" square) and pretty bulky, so this isn't a card I can see myself making very often. But Hazel's tutorial was easy to follow and it was a lot of fun to make, so I'm sure I'll be making another one in the future.

Happy Birthday Stanley

Hope you're having a happy Monday! Dog images are always my favorite, so I am just loving this Stanley dog set from DigiStamp Boutique.

If you visit my blog somewhat regularly, you realize it's been a long time since I've last posted. Several weeks ago we learned that DH was being laid off from IBM. Needless to say, this has been a stressful time and my crafting mojo has been no where to be found (nor have I been feeling up to looking much for it). I'm hoping things start looking up soon.
