Happy November, and welcome to the weekend. With the weekend comes a new Crazy4Challenges challenge and I am excited to say that I am the host for November. One of the benefits of being the host is that I get to choose the challenges : ) According to the days of the year calendar November 3rd is CANDY Day, what fun, so this weeks challenge is to have a candy themed card……. and this is what I came up with.
Welcome to the weekend, and with the weekend comes another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s Challenge is to have a wreath on the card, any style or theme. I’m not quite feeling the Christmas cards quite yet and I have a birthday card I need for someone in the near future so I thought I would make a Birthday card with a wreath. I also that I would make it into an easel card because they just sit up so pretty. This is a wider version of an easel card compared to cards I have done in the past.
So I have been VERY busy making Thank You cards this past weekend, here is 1 of the 5 I made. I decided instead of using cardstock die cut flowers I would use these silk flowers, I think it turned out pretty cute.
So a few weeks ago I posted a daisies easel card, in that post I mention that I made a card that I couldn’t post because my friend hadn’t received it yet and I didn’t want to give away the surprise but I posted a different card that was inspired by the original card that a different friend of mine wanted for a friend of hers. Well this is the original card, lol that was not confusing at all 🙄
So this card came about because I made a different card….. it’s funny how one thing leads to another. I made a fairly similar card a couple weeks back for a friend that I thought might need a little pick me up, and I showed it to another friend. This friend decided that she also has a friend that might need a little pick me up and asked if I could make her one as well. Well, I’m pretty sure my first friend hasn’t gotten hers yet so I don’t want to post her card online yet and I don’t think my friend’s friend follows my blog sooooo I decided to post hers first. LOL, are you able to follow 🙂 anyway here goes?
Sooooo I have been not so patiently waiting to post this card as I was waiting for my friend to receive it in the mail, It would probably help if I mailed it in time 🙄 but I got the go ahead so here goes…….
This is my first attempt at a Flower Pot Pop up Card and I think it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself, I think the next time I will probably try to centre it a little better, I was concerned If I had it too high in the card the flowers were going to come out of the top of the card, it turned out that I had a little more room than I thought 🙂
