Sunday Scoring Springy Thingy Card

Springy thingy card by stampin up UK demonstrator Heidi Smith Flutterbyheidi closed So this card looks very like a quarter fold card when closed – but opens up quite differently to become this springy thingy card open by stampin up demonstrator Heidi Smith flutterbyheidi

This makes a card front that the receiver pulls open and the card opens out like a spring to see an inner 20cm square area. When I made my first one I practiced this on some scrap paper first.  I have used a couple of stamp sets on this card. The main one is a great fun exclusive hostess set.  You can only get hold of this if you place an order or host a party (face to face or virtual) with purchases of over £150.  The second set I used for the bubble effect stamping is from the Playful Backgrounds set.  The DSP is not actually a heavy DSP, it is the envelope paper which is a lighter weight which is great for cards that need to layer and fold – and it is in a pack containing all five of the 2016 In Colours.
