Once again if you are FAMILY STOP READING!!! This may be for you.
If you're anybody else, welcome to today's post and a special welcome to my new followers!
I told you I would have a card using the scraps from the Double Pocket Card. I'm a day late but hopefully not short for this post! I used the background paper to make a Z card. I haven't made one of these for a while and Crafting Vicky reminded me just how pretty they are. So this idea for a mother's day card popped in my head. I had an image from Priscillastyles that I wanted to use and I think with the paper it came out perfectly.The image is of sweet peas surrounding a double hoop. I tried to use colors that would compliment the paper and yet still have the sweet pea look. I also colored in the background of the image slightly with light blue to give it an outdoor hanging vibe. I applied some Studio G Lavender Glitter glue to highlight the flowers in the image. For the Z part of the card, I used recollections bright green CS and embossed it with a Cuddlebug Folder called Stylized Flowers. I attached some green felted wired ribbon to both the image section and the top of the Z to hold the front in place when open. I then placed some artificial flowers from my stash to the top of the Z to decorate it. After I did that, the Z top was to heavy and wouldn't hold the front flap in place. Well I didn't want to just trash it so I played around with different ideas and finally came up with a green pearl bead in the center of the flowers. That was enough to keep the flap tucked and open. You still have to be careful placing it as it's top heavy but it does sit nicely now. So without further preamble:
