By now I am sure you have realized just how much I love the Avant Garden stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  I promise this is the last one. This card is called a double front card and is so easy to make.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Melon Mambo Cardstock #115320

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 6 1/4 score at 2"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut 2 at 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4 3/4" x 7 1/2" score at 3 3/4"
  • cut 2 at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

The first thing I did was my stamping.  I did the flower for the front and then on the inside I used the birthday sentiment from the stamp set.  One the inside of the card in the lower left hand corner I stamped one flower image in the melon mambo.

I attached the white cardstock to the melon mambo, making sure I was close to the fold line, but not too close.  If you put the whisper white right on the line, the flap of them melon mambo will not lay nice.  I would try it first before you put your adhesive on it so you know exactly where you want to put it.  

You will then attach one of the daffodil delight pieces on top of the large white piece of paper, making sure it is centered.  Attach the white piece with the birthday sentiment.

For this step you will want to make sure you attach the white piece with the flower on the daffodil delight and add the ribbon.  Here is a little tip for you.  When you put on your ribbon, you will want to make sure that the edges of your ribbon are on the left hand side of the yellow paper.  You want your ribbon to look nice on the back, because you can see a little of the back of the yellow paper. You can see what I mean in the picture below.  I then added my bow with a glue dot.  It gives it a nice finished look.

You want to make sure that your yellow pieces match up perfectly and then adhere.  PUT TAPE ONLY ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE.  You know how I know that, because I put tape on the whole thing out of habit many times.  You can see what I am trying to explain in the picture below.

Isn't this card so fun?  I love it!  The best part is that it is so easy to make.  

Since last week was the beginning of Spring, I thought I would do a craft project with my girls.  Here is a picture of the flower garden they made.  They loved the punched flowers, using some retired products and the spring colors.  


I have the cutest little girls in my daycare!  I love them so much!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a terrific Tuesday!
