Today I am here to share another fun card from the Online Stamping Retreat that I attended with Kylie & Bruno Bertucci, Lisa Curcio and Gina Hawley.
I have been sharing my projects over the last couple of days on my blog, because I had so much fun and have been enjoying sharing all the fun things that I have created.
You can check out all the details for the Online Stamping Retreat and the details to stay tuned for the next up and coming retreat over here.
This fun class from the card I am sharing today was a duo class taught by the mother/daughter duo Lisa & Gina! They are so adorable to watch craft together.
They created the same card but in different styles/ideas.
This is my take on Gina’s style of the card.
I created mine using the By The Bay suite of products – I believe Gina created hers using the Share a Milkshake Bundle.
The actual By a Bay suite has retired now but everything I have used on my card is still available except the By The Bay Designer Series Paper – but you could easily substitute that with other coordinating Designer Series Paper.
Here is a look at the finished card. The fun fold itself is called the Top/Bottom Pop Up Card. It’s is so cute. Designed to lift up and tuck into a little flap at the bottom (or top if you wish) – it’s such a fun surprise for the recipient – and the fun little surprise on the inside is even better!
I created a fun little cluster of fun textural elements from the Seaside Bay Bundle by using the dies and stamp set and layering them with one of the beautiful dies from the Chic Dies that are also still available.
I find that mixing both foils, vellums and cardstock one of my favourite things to do as I find that mixing textures really adds so much dimension and interest to a card!
Here is a close up look at the finished card.
I have tucked in some of those adorable Flat Backed Adhesive Pearls. Aren’t they amazing? I am so glad that they have carried over to the Annual Catalogue, because I think I could just add those to everything! They shine like an actual pearl!
Here is where the beauty of the card shines.
Once you lift this card open, you get a real surprise! The card lifts open and you get a little pop up surprise in the centre!
I have added another little cluster of my elements that were on my card front to my card centre. So much fun!
I love the Online Stamping Retreat because I get to learn card ideas like this that I never would have thought of.
I hope that you enjoyed seeing my card today.
I have linked all the supplies I have used today below, which are all available in my store.
Until next time.
