Hi Everyone! Luci here from My Crazy Craft Life with a Concertina Popup Card! The card closed will fit in a 5 1/2 inch square envelope, it’s pretty thick so you can get away with using a 6-inch square envelope.
I really wanted to use what was in the kit and all of the Concertina cards I saw like this were 6 inches square so I figured out all of the measurements so you can use an 8 1/2 X 11-inch piece of cardstock.
I am a country/small town girl at heart but oh those city streets and the hustle and bustle of a city is very exciting!
Which do you prefer?

I seriously LOVE each of the collections this month… Gorgeous!! But the Banana Split subscriptionthis month has that extra bit of crafty goodness that just tops the cake!! How absolutely stunning is that camera with the dainty flowers and leaves…?!? I just HAD to use it for my sneak peek! I die cut it from the Neenah 110 lb. Classic Crest Smooth Solar White card stock included in the kit and colored it using copic markers that coordinated with the gorgeous papers included in the Country Roads collection:
Flowers ~ R0000, R14, R56
Leaves ~ Y11, Y13, Y15, E41, YG91, YG93
Camera ~ N0, N2, N4, N6
I colored most of the pieces while keeping the die cuts intact, but some of the camera pieces were so small I took them out and colored them. I then adhered the entire die cut piece to a piece of white copy paper and fussy cut it around the edges.
I trimmed the beautiful patterned papers and adhered them together. I then wrapped a pretty yellow ribbon from another collection around the layers and adhered the panel to a white card base from my stash. I then die cut a piece of white card stock with the Stitched Arch STAX die… adding this piece helped the gorgeous camera to pop on the card. I stamped the empowering sentiment from Your Best Life stamp set in Collection Two with VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink and die cut it with a banner die. I added a tiny piece of patterned paper to the edge of that sentiment and then popped it up on the card. To finish off the card, I added a few of the black sequins included in the Banana Split subscription. So… I used three of the collections and a couple of elements from the Banana Split to make this beautiful card!! I am telling you this kit is A MUST HAVE!!!

Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde coming to you today with a lil’ sneak peek from April’s Flavor of the Month card kit! These little buckaroos are from Sunny Studio Stamps, they are so much fun to color. I had so many ideas it was hard to settle on just one.
I used copic markers to create the sky and grass. Not sure it will show up well in the pic but I added some shine to his hat and both of their buckles. For the denim tag I added “pardner” with a white Signo pen. The patterns you see in the background behind the card are pages from the kit. I can’t wait to make more cards!
It’s Sneak Peek Week!! How cute is this travel paper and this adorable girl on the scooter? This is a peek from Collection 2.
For this card I chose 2 pattern papers. The more colorful one I used as the main panel. I cut that with a stitched rectangle die. In the lower right hand corner I added another pattern paper which I cut with a mini scallop stitched circle die and trimmed off the excess.
When I started to put the card together, I realized the second pattern paper needed a mat to separate it from the more colorful piece. I grabbed black card stock for a mat and used my scissors to carefully follow the circle.
I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set found in collection 2 and stamped that on a stitched fishtail sentiment strip I had in my stash. I used a little Barn Door Distress Ink around the top, bottom and right side.
To finish the card, I added 3 small enamel dots from the card kit and a little Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush on the scooter.
Stay tuned all week for more sneak peeks and stay up late Friday for the full reveal at 12:00am Saturday, April 26.
