Our computer screen saver scrolls through our stored photos so when I saw a card I made years ago, I knew I wanted to make a similar one as a thank you for some beauty products I received. In the old card I used a card stock that had a bathroom tile design...too bad I couldn't find it again so I used a two sided geometric print from a Sizzix paper pad. Because the card base die was a thick old style one capable of cutting several sheets at once, it weakened the card at the fold. Luckily, I have lots of washi tape which not only saved the card but even improved it with a cute cat design (The recipients love cats!). On my old card I used acrylic bubbles (Remember when that was a popular embellishment?) to add some realism. I surprised myself by finding the acrylic dots with very little effort....amazing because my craftroom is so disorganized.
Here is the inside of the card with the swiveling panel upon which I glued a die cut (Taylored Expressions)'thanks'.
At first I was planning to position the standing figure on the inside of the card but it interfered with look of the card front, so I used foam dots to adhere it to the back of the card. I forgot to mention that the thought bubbles were made with a hand punch and stamped with words that came with the Greeting Farm stamp set. Although this card is not exactly like the first one I made years ago, I do think it is just right for expressing my thanks for the special pampering gifts I received. Take some 'me time'.....you deserve it!
