So Very Happy Belly Band Card!

Today I am sharing with you a card I made this weekend.  I used directions for the card that I received from Angela Waters, revised the dimensions so that I could make a 4-1/4" square card, and CASED the colors, layout and stamp set from a card I saw designed by Amy O'Neill ( post dated October 18, 2014.

The belly band slips off, and the card opens like this:

It would be fun to add a small pocket to the inside of this card and use it as a gift card holder!  I also thought about using the Letterpress Winter stamp set and the Snowflake Card framelit to make a Christmas/winter version.

Here is my recipe:

Letterpress Winter October Play Day Project

Hi, friends,
First let me apologize for taking so long to get back to my blog, life just turned crazy busy for a while!  But here I am and I want to share with you a project we made at my October Play Day:

This card is hard to capture with just one picture, so here is another view:

And another:

And yet another:

And one last picture:

I think it would be perfect to add a family picture to the space where I have a white panel!

My recipe for this card:

STAMPS:  Letterpress Winter, Ornamental Pine, Good Greetings

     Soft Sky:  4-1/4 x 11, run thru Snowflake Die (put end opposite the snowflake OVER the cut
          so it doesn't cut off the end) then score 4" from the end
     Lost Lagoon:  3-3/4 x 4
     Whisper White:  3-5/8 x 3-7/8
     All is Calm DSP:  3-3/4 x 4
     SCRAPS:  Whisper White, Silver Foil Sheets

INK:  Lost Lagoon

ACCESSORIES:  Snowflake Card Framelit Die, Big Shot, Glue Dots, Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy stampin and scrappin,
