Bethany Picking Flowers

Hello Everyone!  I hope you're all doing well.  I am getting over a cold and now seasonal allergies are setting in.  Winter, as I hear it, is over here in Florida.  I guess I still have more acclimating to do.  I am hoping this sweet little card in it's very Spring-y colors will help me towards that acclimation and maybe bring some warmth to your neck of the woods.

I found this really great card on the Scor-Pal project site and just had to give it a try.  This is called a half-window card and was really easy to do.  I actually did this on the first try, which I think was dumb-luck.  Haha!


Recently, Korin introduced us to a sweet little bunny named Bethany.  Here's one of them called Bethany Picking Flowers - she's part of an absolutely adorable collection that is perfect for Spring and Easter greetings.


So as I said, this is a half window card and it was super easy to do.  All you need is a scoring tool, I have a Scor Pal and a circle cutting system, I used Coluzzle.  You score the card stock in half for a standard sized card and then score again the front panel in half.  Now I didn't score the entire front panel.  I only scored a little at the top and a little at the bottom.  Placed my Coluzzle template so that it was between the score marks and only cut the circle on the right side of the template.  Then finished the card.


Open it and reveal a message that you stamp behind the focal image.  Easy!  The sentiment is from Benjamin Bunny stamp set.  Pretty spring colors and a sweet sentiment is just what any friend would love to receive.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Don't forget the great sale going on in the SNSS store.  Have a super day!

Wow -- what a neat fold you used -- I've never seen that one before. Congrats on getting it on the first try. I never seem to manage these fun folds without mangling lots of cardstock first -- LOL! Bethany Bunny is SUCH a cutie, and you have created such a wonderful spring backdrop for her. Enjoy your wonderful Florida weather!!!
