2012 Artisan Design Team Entries Blog Hop-Day 9


Welcome back to the 2012 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Today, we continue featuring our winning entries for the 2012 Artisan Design Team Contest with another card. If you are following the hop, then you probably arrived from Jeanna Bohanon's blog. Didn't you just love her project! She does some amazing things with My Digital Studio. We'll be featuring our winning projects for 10 days straight.

Here is my ninth project for the hop, the fifth of five cards that I submitted.


It doesn't look very fancy at this point; looks like a basic Happy Birthday card. But, if you open the flap of the little envelope and pull on the orange semi-circle, then you see the following.


Now it looks a little cuter! I used the petite pennants builder punch to make the banner, strung it on the white thread, and anchored the start of it inside the envelope using a circle of cardstock glued down. To put it in the envelope, I just folded the pennants back and forth together to make a stack, and kept the pull thread outside the envelope. It's hard to see in this picture, but the green banner has the word birthday stamped on it repeatedly.

And now, the inside of the card.


I repeated the pennants, but in a simpler format. Also, I used the word window punch and stamped the greeting through it onto the white background of the card. A little pen stitching with the white gel pen, and it was good to go!
