Well, I’m at the end of the train this month for GCD Studios.
Heidi’s been challenging the design team all month on the GCD Studios blog to make something inspired by these fun dolls.
My first thought was to make a cute nesting doll card. That seemed a little too obvious so I decided instead to make nested cards. I’d somehow incorporate a smaller, blank card onto a larger card. That way, the recipient will receive a card from me, as well as a blank card that she can give to someone else.
I ended up making two nested cards.
Here’s my first attempt.
The small panel with the butterfly is the mini card. The yellow patterned paper from Melody Ross’ Artsy Urban collection acts like a pocket. I only adhered adhesive on three sides of it so the little card could be slid out.
And here’s my second attempt.
The flower panel here is the second card.
Rather than putting a sentiment inside the big card, I put a sentiment inside the mini card. It serves a dual purpose, working as a sentiment for the recipient of the little card as well as the big card.
With this one, I adhered the mini card with a small piece of two-way tape. The recipient just has to pull the mini card off of the big card.
That’s all for now.
Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be back again soon.
