Be Happy...

Hi everyone...

Hope you're all having a wonderful week, so far!! This post was meant to be here on Monday but it's been another of those weeks that has flown by and I'm not even sure how it even got to Wednesday!! Is it only me that feels that the days are going faster and the time fairy is stealing precious minutes? When I broke up for my summer holidays, all those years ago, those 6 weeks seemed forever but now, I think you'd only blink and you'd be back at school!!

Now this particular card will be familiar to all the Making Cards Magazine readers as it was on the front cover of the July issue but I thought it would be really nice to show you the project in detail. So, here it is...inside and out and as always, I hope you like it!!
This card was a "pop up gift card" and as you can see from the pics below, it holds your gift card perfectly inside and is such a fab surprise for the recipient.
The stamps I used are by Hero Arts and the papers by Kaisercraft. From what I can remember and I did make it quite a while ago, so forgive me but I think they were the Pickled Pear collection!!!! I coloured the each of the individual flowers with Distress Markers and then painstakingly cut them all out and layered them up.

Inside of the card showing the gift card in place.

Well, that's it from me for today...I've got a little bit more creating to do, then I must raid the cupboards to see what's for dinner!!
See you all very soon and thank you so much for stopping by, I can't wait to read all your comments.

Bye for Emma xxx


  1. Emma this is absolutely gorgeous, stunning colour combo.
    Love how you have included the gift card inside the card.

  2. Gorgeous card, I love the colours & the inside looks amazing.

  3. Oh my goodness Emma ... this is an amazing card. Anyone who receives this card will know that they are loved :) (Especially if they realize how much time it takes to cut out all of those flowers and color them by hand). The colors just pop and the way that you arranged those lovely flowers truly sets off the sentiment. Fabulous make!! -- Mary Elizabeth

  4. Loved it in the magazine; love it even more in panoramic online detail!


Thank you for all your comments and messages, they are all appreciated and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon...
