Just Us Girls Technique Challenge... JUGS24

If you are looking for my Play Date Cafe blog hop post, please scroll down or click here.

Hello! It's time for another Just Us Girls Technique Challenge! This week's challenge is to create a Flap card.. What's a Flap card, you ask? There's a great tutorial HERE. This was my first time making one, and it was fun to make something other than a standard A2 card.

I was in a springy mood when I made this card! For my image, I used one of the new Verve releases, Feel the Sun. I stamped the flower twice, colored it with Copic markers, then I cut one of the blossoms out and popped it on top. The patterned paper (floral and turquoise blue) are from Deena Rutter's Happier paper collection (Design House Digital).

Here's a look at the inside. I finished it off simply by stamping the sentiment (also from Feel the Sun) which reads "Some people make the world special just by being in it".

I hope you will play along with us this week! For more details on the challenge, please visit the Just Us Girls site HERE, and for more inspiration, be sure to check out the fabulous creations by each of the girls:
