An Easter Card for Julie!!

Hey gang! I always ask what card projects you would like to make for future card making classes, and my friend Julie asked if I would design a few mechanical cards for Easter. The 'Exploding Floral Bouquet Card' is a project I've been itching to make, so I made this one this afternoon. The punch art Easter Bunny on the card front is cute, but the inside of the card is the best part! It opens to reveal an exploding hot pink bouquet of flowers! It doesn't get more 'mechanical' then that! I experimented with several different papers and cardstocks of various weights and colors before settling on hot pink gift wrap of all things! I chose this paper partly for the bright color and partly because of the weight as it adds very little bulk to the card considering the numbers of layers involved. It will definitely be a challange for card class, but we can do it! Hope you like it Julie! I'll post the second card as soon as I finish it. Happy Easter and Happy Spring to everyone!!

    1. Sure! It will take me a couple of days to get it posted, but I could give a tutorial a try! Stay tuned!
