I have a funny story to tell about a simple card that went on to big things.
Three years ago I shared some cards on my blog from a team swap.
One of them was this card by the lovely Debbie Hand.
Over the years I noticed that a lot – and I mean A LOT – of visitors were coming to my blog to visit this card, mainly from Pinterest.
Many have emailed me about it. Most shared how much they liked the design. Some had CASEd it. Occasionally people asked how to make it. I even had an angry email (“why don’t you ladies give instructions!”). Yep, it’s an interesting life, isn’t it?
I sent many emails explaining how I believe, just by looking at it, that the card was made. But in the past week alone I’ve received another 5 emails about it! So, I’m here today to provide as much info as I can about this card.
Debbie and I have had a big chuckle about it too.
HOW DO YOU MAKE IT?
1. Create a standard card base, with the fold on the left side.
2. Using your paper trimmer, cut out a section from the card front.
3. Punch a semi-circle from the card front with a circle punch.
4. Embellish card front and add a flower to the inside so it peeks through the punched semi-circle opening.
Yep, it really is that easy!
- The original card was created using the now-retired stamp sets Bird on a Branch (for the speckled image and also the sentiment) and Cottage Garden for the flower.
I hope this helps. Have fun recreating this cool card!
