The National Scrapbook Day celebration spilled over into today, which certainly isn't a bad thing! This is for Challenge #9 at My Pink Stamper, which necessitated glitz, glam, and glitter. I might be pushing the boundaries of glam here... but there's oodles of sparkle, pearls, and swirly flourishes. Plus, the pink cardstock and ribbon are called Raspberry Fizz. Surely that makes my butterfly glamorous.
This project began as a gift card holder, but I soon realized I had no gift card for inclusion and therefore needed a new plan. Details, details. So I searched for different takes on slider cards to try and stumbled upon a great tutorial for surprise pop-ups from Dawn at Dawn's Stamping Studio. Perfect! I *love* this idea. My creative process was a comedy of errors, made even funnier by the fact that this is not complicated. At all. I'll chalk it up to late-night sleepy crafting and a less-than-stellar Mocha Frapp. (Such devastation.) Regardless, this was a ton of fun and I will be making many variations in the future. :o)
Key Recipe Components:
* Cricut Storybook cartridge
* Autumn Leaves, Inkadinkado, and Hampton Art stamps
* Brenda Walton rhinestones
* Studio G glitter glue
* Papertrey Ink and DCWV cardstock
* Papertrey Ink and Offray ribbon
Love and blessings to all on this beautiful Mother's Day! Love you, Mom!
