Plantin' and a Growin' Sassy Style

Pull Out Insert

Sassy Raggedy aka Joann is the hostess this week and she wants us to create with "something off of the card".  I had this idea to show the flower growing bigger and bigger by pulling it out of the top.  When I went to make my insert, the design took a mind of it's own and this is the result.  I thought it looked pretty that way, so I just went with it.

The card looks like it was a lot of work, but actually it came together quite quickly.  It is the one card I haven't had to play with incessantly.  I chose my paper first to compliment my digi from Sassy Cheryl's Shop called "Whatcha Grown' Max and Maddie".  The paper is Graphic 45,The Bohemian Bazaar collection.  Love the vivid colors here and the paper is double sided and has a nice heavy weight so it worked well for the card design.  I used Copics  to color my digi and mounted it on black cardstock and then onto the Blue DP.  I cut some grass out of the green paper that is from Bohemian Bazaar.  I then used a tape runner on the sides and bottom of the back of the blue DP and adhered it to a yellow print.  I left the top open to create a pocket for the tag.

I then cut an additional yellow piece the same size as the pocket and cut it in half vertically.  I punched a lacy border on the inside edges using a MS punch.  I scored the outer edges at 1/2 " and  used red line tape to secure this to the blue pocket.   The blue floral strips are cut from DP of the same Bohemian collection.  It hot glued the red button lady bugs and wrapped some bakers twine around them.  The flower pots come with the stamp set so I colored them and fussy cut them out and mounted on the front panels.  The tag is cut with a lattice rectangle Spellbinder. the Stamp is a set from Close To My Heart called Friendship Bouquet.

It's fun coming up with something different each week.  It always amazes me to see the cards my DT sistahs and the challenge participants come up with.      Keep creating crafty people and please share with us this week at Sassy Cheryls.
