I have been going through old cards and 3D items again.  So be prepared for some redone “old” ideas in the near future.  Today is a redo of a buckle card.  At least that is what the inspiration card looked like.  I have combined a couple of Sale-A-Bration stamp sets to create this card.


Stampin' Up!, Dear Doily, Beauty Abounds, Nature's Poem, Blackberry Bliss, Petal Pink, Jackie Beers

Dear Doily, 148690


Please excuse my thumb!  I had to hold it to get the best picture.  The flap wanted to open enough to cause a shadow.  Anyway….. I combined Dear Doily with the Bocca from Beauty Abounds.  I have always loved small background stamps.  And these little dots are a great one to have.

Here is a view with the Flap open.



Now you can see the larger of the doilies stamped on the main card.  I really like how the punched layer on the flap centers with the main one.  It just took a small bit of moving around to get that alignment.  I attached the flap to the back of  the card.  I had already adhered the inside white layer before I thought about attaching.  Next time, I will add the flap to the inside back layer and cover it with the edge of the inside layer.

I used the colors in this Nature’s Poem sheet of DSP.  I do not believe I would normally pair Blackberry Bliss with Petal Pink.  Or, maybe now I will do that!  I like them together.  Even though it is not an exact match, I added one of the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the center of the flap doily.  It was just enough to call it finished!

I have the supplies at the bottom of the post and the measurements are listed next.  Thank you so much for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for another Redo Project.
