At Convention one of the neatest things I saw (and believe me there were dozens of things) but one that I had never seen before was a demonstrator named Marlayne Hardy from Ottawa, Ontario (must be she is Canadian and that is why I had a fun time watching her) She showed a card with a spiraly thing inside. I dont know what it is called but I am calling it Spring Loaded Card.
I hope it makes sense and I want to thank Marlayne for teaching us.
Now when I am showing the pictures they are all unstamped just to teach you, but when you make one for real you will want to decorate the inside first.
You will need whisper white cardstock, folded like a card, a 1 3/8" circle punch (now of course if I had the new circle punch I would have used it) paper snips, and tombow multi purpose adhesive.
Punch out three circles from whisper white paper.
Now I used this cause my base card was whisper white, if your base card was So Saffron then you would use that. You can also probably use cardstock vellum (I have not tried that though)
Using your paper snips cut your circle punches in a spiral.
So it looks like this.
Do it to all 3 of the circles.
Now you have these.
Now you are going to glue this to your card. Glue one of them using the bigger cut end like this.
And stick it on the center of the card.
This one you will glue the pointy end to the card, and you want them to be on each side of the other one, so they will alternate.
See how two have the big end end sticking up and 1 has the big end down.
Now put glue on the ends of the spirals sticking up.
Then close your card, and they will glue to the upper part of the card.
Hold this closed for a little bit while the glue sets up.
See how when you open the card, they are stuck, and springy!
Add a little glue where you want to add your 3-D item, I am using the Flight of the Butterfly set.
Glue the little butterfly in place.
See how as you close the card the little butterfly will lay flat.
Now remember I said you would decorate the card first. So all this stamping was done before you start assembling the card.
I used the Inspired by Nature set for the grass, a little sponging and scallop circle punch sponged for clouds.
Turned out cute huh!
Marlayne is a genius!
Thanks so much for stopping in!
