Hello Friend

Hey crafty friends, I was pretty busy this weekend but I still wanted to get a Craft Roulette card done. So when I want to get a card done quick I pull out a paper pack. This time I used a Carta Bella kit that came with stickers and double sided paper.

This weeks parameters

And here is my card, I have one tag on the front and 2 on the inside, the colours used could be found in a rose garden with the sky in the background, I have May flowers, and I used masking to make the clouds on the inside.

All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

1- decided to make a 5 1/2” square card, i cut the layers as shown, the “Hello” piece was cut out of a piece of paper from the pack. I cut the center out of the patterned paper so I could use the piece for something else. I added the layers to the card front.

2- I used a stencil that I had previously made using a piece of packaging plastic and the clouds die from the Natures Edges. I used Pool Party ink and a sponge to sponge on the clouds. I added the layers for the inside as shown below

4- I wanted there to be a pop up mechanism, so I decided to use the Karen Burlingtons Bam Box (clink link for instructions) , I used the circle shape that came with the Bam Box to add the greeting. In retrospect I should have also cut out a green frame for it. The paper is from the paper back and so is the sticker. I added a few stickers to the card and I used a clear tag shaped sticker that has been in my stash for years, I added a few flowers to it and some ribbon.

5- I die cut 2 more circles, and added some stickers to them. The tag is another clear sticker tag, I used some paper from the pack, stickers and more ribbon to make tag #2

I used a round tag sticker, and another sticker from the pack to make tag #3 , shown below.

6- Karen Burniston Showed this trick to use as a closure. Take the 2 strips and wrap around the corners as shown. I also used a corner rounder to round off the 2 front corners to help them pop in and out of the loops. I added a green cover to the back.

7- it’s hard to see, there a gold threads in with the ribbon on the tags so I added gold micro beads as little accents.

The Paper packed I used is Carta Bella Paper co. Flora No. 3

Fine Tip bottle

Lineco Neutral PH Adhesive 

Quick Stick Tool


Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.
