The Pen Pals Continue


My daughters are continuing the pen pal sharing. This card was sent from my eldest, Rachel, to Michele. The outside is a clean and simple layout using Circle Circus and Three Little Words. Michele was excited to finally get it but, when she opened the card up she gave a squeal of delight to see this bouquet of flowers!


Rachel saw the idea on line but didn't remember where. She made the flowers out of copy paper and colored the insides. Each flower is attached to the others and folded in such a way that they all pop right out of the card when you open it up. It is an adorable design! I will try and locate the instruction link and post it in the comments.

Happy Easter!
Recipe:
Stamps: Circle Circus, Three Little Words
Ink: Early Espresso, Marina MIst
Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, copy paper
Tools of the Trade: 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch
