Spring Pedestal Card

Good morning! I made a dozen of these cards yesterday assembly-line style. They are all basically the same, but some have different flowers and buttons on them.  These cards just make me smile.  I love it when I create a card and just smile with how it turns out.  Believe me, that is not always the case.  Many a creation has ended up in the recycle bin.
Cards #58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69
Card opened

Card closed

Yes, this card will fit into an A2 size envelope (also called Invitation size).  Did you see I am having a FUN FOLD CARD CHALLENGE THIS MONTH?  CLICK HERE to visit that post and read all about how you can play along for a chance to win some Peachy Keen Stamps!

Want to make your own Pedestal Card?  Here's everything you need to know:
  1. Card Base 11" x 4 1/4"  Scored @ 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
  2. Outside Card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (adhere to fold)
  3. Outside Mat 4" x 5 1/4"
  4. Inside Mat 3 1/8" x 4"  (adhere with foam tape so that when card is opened, the outside card will be propped against the inside mat so that it will not slide closed.
For my Pedestal Card I used Cricut cartridge LIVE SIMPLY cutting Bunny @ 3 1/2".  For the inside label, I used Cricut cartridge LACY LABELS and the "Berries" label cut @ 3" with Shadow feature. All card papers for backgrounds, mats and image cuts are from various Recollections paper stacks.  "Hoppy Easter" printed from computer.

I hope you'll pop over to my FUN FOLD CARD CHALLENGE and play along with us! Challenge ends noon CST Thursday, March 31st and winner will be announced on Friday, April 1st.
