Phlippians 1:3-4 Sunflowers and Pumpkins

Hi all, here is one of my projects for Fred She Said DT.  I used the FSS Colored Sunflower Trio, Philippians 1 versePumpkins and Sunflowers, and Sunflower Frame.  Can you tell I love these images? You can find them here.  The design of the card is one of my favorites of Bonnie McLain and she has a great tutorial for it here.  There is a lot going on with this card and the surprise is when you open it.  The inside reveals a V fold that holds pop up images in the window.  Even the back of the card is decorated and holds a tag pocket.

I added some metallic gel pen highlights to the images for some subtle sparkle and gold gel pen to the edges of the embossed panels. The card has a lot of dimension and I used a lot of pop dots!

I love the way the striking colors of the images pop against the white background.  The card is really easy to make and Bonnie's tutorial is great.  I changed a few of the embellished panels and added the pop up in the window, but it is basically the same design.  And it is so versatile that you can embellish and use whatever papers and card stock that suits your images and desire.  You can see more of the images in the window in the picture below.

Here is a picture looking down into the card from the top when open so you can see the mechanism of it.

Here is a look at the back of the card with the tag pocket and tag that can be used to write a personal note as there isn't really any place to do so on this particular design.  You could put pockets or panels for writing on the inside if you wish. 

I enjoyed making this card and will make several more.  I love this style of cards with the white embossed backgrounds.  Bonnie calls them "Confection Cards" and I couldn't agree more, they look like elegant frilly eye candy confections!  Tracey has awesome digi designs that come either pre-colored or ready to color.  Either way I'm sure you will love them and you can see them here. 

I have seen that other bloggers are putting "disclosures" on their blogs and so I will put one here.  As you know I am on the Fred She Said Design Team.  As a DT member I do receive images at no cost to create projects with.  Having said this, I really do LOVE the images that Tracey creates, especially the pre-colored ones!  I am not compensated to say that though!  I recommend them because of their ease of use (you see me, who needs a "Didn't grow up with a computer" book for Dummies can use them easily) and wonderful designs. 

I finally updated the side bar with the new FSS DT members and their blog links I'm sure you will enjoy exploring!  And if you haven't visited Paper Craft Planet and the Fred She Said group, please do and you will see some eye poppin' creations using FSS images for lots of inspiration!

I still have unposted projects and new ones coming up, tomorrow I will post a quilling project. If you have any questions please email me or leave a comment where I can answer you! Until then,

Thanks for all the super sweet comments!

What talent!! You really know what it means to be creative. I see the various tools you've used--Martha Stewart punches, Cricut & carts, embossing folders -- & mixed them all plus much more so beautifully.
