Pop-up flower cards! 


(At RIGHT) This is the first card I made using Martha Stewart Crafts' Punch Around The Page punches to create an all-around border! I also used a border punch and flower punch from EK Success, a flower stamp from Hampton Art, and a blue rhinestone for the flower center.


(BELOW) What else but a bunny card for Easter? Do you believe I found this great bunny stamp in the dollar bin at the craft store?! I also "cheated" on the card. I found pre-cut trifold cards, with two die-cut windows, plus envelopes, at Amazing Savings. They were made by K&Company, but I don't think they make them anymore. :(  I used Martha Stewart Crafts and EK success punches. I colored in the stamped bunny with markers, chalk, and glitter markers. The cotton tail was made with Duncan Snow Accents snow compound. The outside trifold flap (not shown) was covered with the same green floral paper as used on the bottom front of the card. I don't think you can tell from the picture, but the bunny has a sprinkling of crystal glitter to give him some glisten! 

(BELOW) This uses an Inkadinkado rubber stamp. The middle balloon is on the stamp. The sentiment reads, "Sending Wishes for a birthday that's as special as you are to me." Three more balloons were stamped and cut out. One was layered on top of the middle balloon with a foam dot. The balloon on the far left has hearts embossed with Martha Stewart Crafts turquoise glitter embossing powder. I used turquoise, light blue, and black card stock, a thin blue satin ribbon, and turquoise thread for the balloon strings.
