So I haven’t posted for a while but I wanted to put up a post about one of the things I’ve been busy on! My boss and good friend Tami turned 45 last monday and since I have set the bar VERY high in terms of cards that I give her, I had to up the ante once again. This card is part inspiration from my pinterest page and part paper engineering which I think I might create a separate blog with my cards, you’ll have to let me know. Regardless, for my boss’ birthday I wanted to create something special so I created the following card.
This is the front exterior of the card and it measures about 8.5 inches square.This is the rear of the card and where you open it.
What you see when you open the card.
The note on the card says “Before untying bow, prop up card with stand” which meant that the tan piece got propped up with a piece of matte board.
This is the engineering piece where you prop the card up with the two paper hinges I created.
The exclamation point is actually a pocket and that piece pulls out and has a brad that allows for the pieces to swivel for the sentiment in the card. Finally, here is the opened piece and the part I stole from pinterest.
So that’s the card I created! I hope you enjoy!
