Please be seated

This may come as a shock to some of you, but I made a card AND I made it using bright colours.  Yes ME!!!  The queen of grunge made a card (it's been a few years) and with bright colours and NO distressing <gasp>. I honestly don't know what happened.  There was even patterned paper involved.

Well I guess I had better show it to you.

I don't know the correct name for this card.  I call it a flip top card.  I made my first one years ago.I will put the items used at the bottom of this post.

This card will lay flat in the envelope and then you just open up the sides so that it is free standing.   I have made a number of versions of this in the past.  Some die cut, some with lace to name just a couple.

The top flips up so that you can put a message there, but if you want to add an image, the message could just as easily go on the back.

 I hand dyed a white butterfly applique and added 2mm and 3mm AB rhinestones.

I flattened out a love slider to add to the card and dyed bakers twine using Melon mambo ink refill to match.
