Another cool stamp camp card

Here is another cool card we made at stamp camp this weekend. There are a few things I really like about it. First, it's a neat fold and the belly band closure is very fun. Second, it uses three different colors of card stock, but only one color of ink! And third, it looks just as cute opened as it does closed. It is a little tricky lining up the punches to create the cranberry border inside the opening, But since you do a similar border on the inside of the image I bet you could skip that step and the card would be very nearly as cute. Don't tell anyone, but you might just be seeing this layout again with a different stamp set, perhaps in the June stamps by mail ensemble.

The second picture shows what the card looks like inside. I just love that little burst of color inside a card that would otherwise be pretty plain. And it's nice that your popped-up flower image does double duty to decorate both the inside and the outside of a card. Very Very nifty indeed!

Just a warning, I may not be able to post tomorrow as I will be attending a meeting in the evening. But if that is the case I promise I'll be back on Wednesday with something that's hopefully cute and fun!

Love this card. I've been looking for a layout to use on a couple of swaps I'm in. This just might work.
