Friendship Whimsy

Last night my Hostess Club got together for a fun night of stamping. It was Rachel's turn as hostess and she brought such yummy snacks and Cheri brought a nice bottle of wine...thanks you two!Unfortunately, two members of the group were sick and had to miss out...hope you are feeling better today Michelle & Kim! I have your projects stamped and ready for you to assemble.

We made this cute stand up pop up card. It folds flat to fit in an evelope for mailing. We used the Friendship Blooms SAB set and the Spunky Spots jumbo wheel. The big flower was embossed in white EP and then watercolored.

I found the instructions for this pop up card here. I did alter the measurements a bit so that it fit in a standard envelope. The original project called for the base to be 11"x 4-1/2" and I changed it to 11" x 4-1/4. This also allows you to get two cards from one peice of card stock.

Our next project uses the SAB sets Birthday Whimsy and So Many Scallops along with the Whimsy jumbo wheel. To create the scalloped edge on the Real Red textured cardstock we used the 3/16" corner rounder. the red zig-zag ribbon can be found in the Jersey Ribbon Originals pack. The Soft Sky patterned paper is from the designer prints pack.

Enjoy your weekend!
