The Never Ending Card

Hello there everyone...It is me Jeannie with today's Cheery Lynn Designs post.
I am still recovering from going to CHA with Cheery Lynn Designs.  I had a blast and got to work with Cherry Lynn Designs owners, Mike and BJ Dywan, their graphic designer Viktor, and the delightful duo, Jan and Pam.
Cheery Lynn Designs was well received and I think the company had a wonderful show, it seems that everyone knows about Cheery Lynn Designs!  Hooray!
Today I am sharing a project that I have entitled the Never Ending Card.  Why? Well, I made it how the pattern said to, but I just kept adding things.
Here is the front of my card, can you see the border?  That is made from strips of the Cuties 3.
Inside the cut out square, I have the Sunflower and Ladybug showing through.


Here is a side view, the rest of the card is stored inside.


This was a very fun card to make.


The brad disguises a small piece of Velcro on the opening tab.


Here is the next level of the card.


This is so bright and colorful, I only embellished her hat and 3d'd everything else.  I used the Pretty Petal die to add dimensional flowers to her hat.


Here is the inside to the above card.


I made a pocket with another level to pull out.
Again you can see I used the Cuties 3 and the Pretty Petals to embellish the patterned papers.


This is the portion that you pull out and this houses the final part of the card.


It is a small tag that says Happy Birthday.  


I have used the Fanciful Flourish, Pretty Petals and the Scalloped Squares for the tag.


Here are all the pieces..lots of pieces to make this a fun card.


All the graphics for this card are from a wonderful book I have by Mary Engelbreit.  When I ordered it, I had no idea it came with a CD that has all these graphics on it.  I will never run out now!  Hooray!


I hope you have enjoyed this, I was mainly trying to show that you can use the Cheery Lynn Designs dies to make something very cute, just a notch cuter!  I never tire of using these dies and it seems I am always finding new ways to use them
If you would like a chance to try them, why not check out the information on our challenge.  You can find all the details here.
I hope you have enjoyed today's post, this has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana, have a great weekend.
