Shadow box card and a dang sweater!

Hello!  Mother Nature sure is a prankster!!  It is cold here today!  Darn cold too!!  What the heck is up with this weather?!  Has Spring sprung?!  Sheesh!!  LOL    I made a very Spring feeling card today anyhow!  This is one of my very favorite kinds of cards to make!!  In fact, I may even use this as my swap for the upcoming Stampin Up! Movie (New Catalog!) Premiere coming up soon, soon, soon!  Shhhhh!  Don't tell anyone though because I like to keep my swap a secret until reveal time! :)  Here is my Spring (please hurry back!!!!) card:

Isn't this just the cutest thing?!  It stands by itself!  It is 3D and it also folds flat for mailing!  

View from the top.

I stamped my sentiment on the inside and then added some bright, happy butterflies (blinged out for a little bit of Spring fashion)!

I added Petite Petals and a big ole Pansy to the front with some leaves from the 2 step Bird punch.

You can fold the little sides in to flatten and mail or....

lay it completely flat to mail!  Either way it is just a really fun card! (to make and receive!)

The details:
Stamps: Happy Watercolor
Paper: Very Vanilla, Primrose Petal, Garden Green and Primrose Petal DSP
Ink: Early Espresso and Primrose Petals
Punches and Dies: Petite Petals, 2 Step Bird, 2 1/2" Circle, Small Butterfly and Beautiful Wings Sizzlet
Extras: Pearls and Rhinestones

I will be back tomorrow with a tutorial to show you how to make one of these little cuties!  Until then...stay warm and have a great day! :)

Much love!
