Little Moments

Hello All this is  my post going "live today" at the
Classy Cards 'n Such blog...I hope you will take a
peek over there, we have some new awesome DT members
and  am sure you will be inspired by all the creativeness!!

Hello Classy Friends.....
Our new challenge this week is "Buttons and Bows"....
using the pretty inspiration photo below I decided last minute
to make a "pop" up" card....

But here I am getting ahead of myself.....
Lets start with the front cover of my card....


My card base is the gorgeous Stardream Rose Quartz 105# Metallic paper
On top of that I added the beautiful paper from Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 6 x 6
you will see I used another label from this same set on the inside!
I added 2 flower buttons and a pink bow and finished off my card with a
Rose made from using 2 of the flower dies from Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms

Okay...are you ready to take a peek on the inside??


Voila.....so what do you think???
I love how when this card is opened it will be a beautiful surprise to the receiver!!


I cut the Garden Bench by Elizabeth Crafts and designed by  Karen Burniston


The background paper I used is one of my favorites.....
KaiserCrafts Key To My Heart 12 x 12 paper pad
this paper was perfect for the larger size card I needed for my design!


To finish my scene I added Puffy Clouds by Memory Box
Birdhouses by Impression Obsession (you get all 3 designs in one set!)

and Cat Set by Impression Obsession


As mentioned above I used a label from the Spellbinders set Radiant Rectangles
and stamped a sentiment from B Line Designs

Beautiful, beautiful card, Diane! I loved the front so much, but when you showed the inside, it WAS such a surprise! I loved all your colors that blended together so well, and even the little kitties inside.
Thanks for inspiring us so!

Wow!! That's such a fabulous card ... what a beautiful scene you created ... I love the cats on the bench and those adorable birdhouses! Terrific bow!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, my GOSH! That is the prettiest little thing! Subtle on the outside, and then the big surprise inside -- LOVE it! Beautiful combination of sentiments. Really love those bird house dies. Gosh, I could get a lot of use out of those. I generally stick to what I find at out local paper crafts store... just got some bird cages and now I'm not sure how I'm going to use them. Someone is going to be THRILLED to receive this beauty!
