Flower Card

If you haven't yet, please take a second to enter my 400 follower giveaway!

Janis over at Pause, Dream, Enjoy is having a fun folds challenge.  I've submitting several cards for her challenge (4, so far, I think).  We'll her challenge ends tonight and I left her a comment with the card I linked up today that it would be my last! She responded to my comment with a personal challenge to make just ONE MORE!! :)

Janis, this card is just for you! :)

Here is the front. I kept it super simple... wait until you see the inside!

The Hero Art's sentiment is embossed with white to go along with the white gel pen stitches I added. I used a Bow Easy to tie the sheer ribbon into a wonderful double looped bow.

All the flowers and leaves are from Walk in my Garden. I added some little yellow dew drops to the flower centers. Each flower is two petal layers.

Are you ready for the inside??? It's a tunnel card!! And the best part of all??

Here is the Gypsy file for you to download to make your own:

The card body shape is from Preserves sized to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". The scalloped circle (around the tunnel cut out) is from Accent Essentials. The yellow center of the flower got some Star Dust Stickles too.

I love the two white panels on the sides, it sure leaves you lots of room to add your message to the lucky recipient.

Here is a very dimensional view of a tunnel card.  In this shot you can see how the flower is suspended in the window (I just used some white thread). I would be happy to do a tutorial of a tunnel card if I get enough interest. Please leave me a comment and let me know if that's something you'd like to see.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do! :)

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

How insanely cool is that?! I have an embossing board that gives directions for this type of fold, but I had no idea what to do with the idea. Thanks for sharing such awesome inspiration for me. Also, so glad you entered this into Abby's Challenge :)
