OCS - July

For Teri's One Card Swap - July, I was so lucky & fortunate to have Linda from Simple & Sassy Creations as my OCS partner. Since the first time we met, we had an instant connection and blabbed all night about how we love paper crafting. She was kind enough to help me out at a Make-n-Take during our sidewalk sale where we blabbed even more! She's a hoot and so kind, so I really wanted my card to her to be special! I found out her favorite color was Purple...so I made this pop-up card for her. The card lies flat and fits into a size A4 envelope.

Once the card is opened, the message "slides" out and the card sits standing up. I printed a note to her on vellum and attached with purple grossgrain ribbon against a nice DP.

I blinged out the "F" with stickles and the rest of the word for Friend was cut using my good ol' QuicKutz Squeeze. Flowers are from Prima. Really hope she likes the card because she really is a true "Friend"!!

Linda made a special hand delivery of her card to me. I sorta cheated and got a peek of my card on her blog before receiving it. As soon as I saw it on her blog, I was like OMG - what a gorgeous card!! I couldn't wait for her to drop it off. I have to say, the card is even MORE gorgeous in person!!

I think this is called a Tri-Shutter card...they look pretty intricate, but Linda told me they are pretty easy to make. I'll have to try one...boy did she put a lot of detail into it.

Love the colors she used...green has been a very popular color this season for weddings. It's a very soothing and calm color. Thanks so much Linda for my card, I LOVE IT!!

If you want to join Teri's OCS - she's taking sign-ups for August now on her blog.
