So, here it is:
On the back of the card I created a little scene with a table and chairs. The chairs are from the My Community Cricut cartridge. I made the table by making a taller thinner chair on my Gypsy and then cutting off the top half. One thing I added to the original design are the ties at the top of the card. The fold is actually at the bottom, and I wanted a way to keep the card closed. I concealed the ribbon beneath some crown molding.
If you undo the bows and open the card, here's what happens:
Ta-daaaaaa! A cheery spring flower box appears! All of the flowers are stamped images from the Friendship Blessings stamp set. I added bitty sparkles to the hyacinths. I did the random stamping of the "ground" on Pear cardstock with the leaves from Friendship Blessings and the Playful Flourishes stamp set. The side of the flower box that peeks out the window looks like this:
Turn the card around and you see this:
I used the Walk in my Garden Cricut cartridge to make the sign with the sentiment and the watering can. One last shot of closing the card:
I'm not going to lie...it took FOREVER to create the flowers in the garden. Cutting out all those little tiny flowers...ugh. It would have been much faster just to Cricut something instead! I had a ton of fun putting this card together. Can't decide if I can possibly bear to give it away to someone, though...
