Flat Pop Card- Dotty For You

Dotty For You is making a star appearance today for Throwback Thursday!  This is called a Double Pop Card and I used all retired paper but the stamp is the Southern Sass Sentiments (C1687) and the flower is cut from the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge!

Isn't this stinking cute!  The fabulous part is it folds and fits in a normal envelope to mail!  

What would you think about Christmas cards like this?!   

Also there is new clearance items on my website!  Check them out before they are gone!

Enchantment Fundamentals

The Enchantment Fundamentals are to me very standard basic colors and very useful!  

I cannot remember which stamp set I used on this, the hazard of not blogging for a while!
The shimmer pen was used to add a touch of sparkle to the flower and a little dimension too!

To finish off the flower I used a Silver Sequin and Clear Sparkle in the center.

Adventure Fundamentals

I love the bright fun papers in the Adventure Fundamentals

The Flower Market Cricut cartridge is how I cut the flower and I used the negative image too!  The center of the flower is the White Twine glued down in a circle with Liquid Glass.  

The same twine was used in the bottom of the card!My hint on this is that I wrap the card and the separately make the knot and fringe out the edges with my Piercing Tool and use a Glue Dot to attach it!  SOOO much easier than trying to tie the knot while attaching around the card!

Rustic Home Fundamentals

Rustic Home Fundamentals is such a fun versatile paper pack!  It is neutral with brown tones on one side and grey tones on the other side of three papers! There is also touch of Gold and Kraft!  

To accent this paper I also used Sea Glass,  the Color of the Year paper in cardstock and Glitter paper, that is only available until August!

The ribbon is from the Rustic Home Ribbon Pack.

The Friends Cricut cut is from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge only available from Close to My Heart!  It is amazing how easily the Glitter paper cut with my Cricut.  I did set my Explore on custom setting glitter paper.
