Hello....

Can't believe a month has flown by so quickly...I have a lot to catch up on, so let's get started!!! Here's my card for today:



Pull the ribbons apart to reveal a message:



I hope I can explain this all clearly...here goes:



The main card piece is shown at the top of the photo (above)...it measures 2-3/8" x 12"...score at 3" and 8-1/2". Apply double stick tape to the edge of the shorter (left) flap...and the bottom (pink side) of the longer (right) flap (don't tape together yet :).

The two sliding pieces are also shown in the photo above. Cut them both to 2" x 6"...score at 1-1/2" and 4". Fold along the scored lines and secure with double stick tape.



Flip the 2 sliding pieces over and staple a 4" piece of ribbon to each slider (as shown above).



You'll also need two heart shaped pieces...I used a Marvy scalloped heart (pink) punch. Stamp the sentiment in one. Cut the other heart in half and mount (with a pop dot) stamp #C134 (Sitting Quincy) and #C135 (Sitting Pong) to each half of the heart.



Using more pop dots, mount each half of the heart along the inner edge of the 2 slider pieces.



Slide the left half of the heart over the left flap of the card...and the right half of the heart over the right flap of the card. Slide each slider as far as it will go. Then remove the double stick tape on both flaps...lay the flaps, right over left, and secure the double stick tape:



Pull the two sliders apart and glue down your sentiment in the middle:



I finished off the card with some flowers to cover the staples...see the first photo. I have an idea to turn this card into a favor...check back tomorrow...we'll see if it works out!!!

I also wanted to share this cutie-pie card made by Cathy Y...ooohh, so sweet!!!



And I know this next one is super late...but, here's an Easter card from the talented Lianne (Cute Stuff). Oh well...maybe you can get a jump on ideas for next year!!! She cut apart stamp #B144 (Little Wagon) to make a cute little Easter "train"!!! So clever!!!
