For some strange reason, I rarely send a "normal" card. One that just opens regularly – a simple folded piece of cardstock. Instead, I like to have things that pop up, pull out or simply do something different.
Funny thing: Awhile back when I visited my 100-year old Grandma, I noticed that many of the cards I had sent her were ripped. It took me awhile to figure out that whenever the card did something different than just a typical card opening, she couldn't figure them out and ended up ripping. Bless her heart. 🙂 I miss her.
Anyway… so the moral of story is that these not-so-typical cards are great for anyone. Just no one over 90, I guess. Hee.
I did this one in my class the other night. It doesn't open at all. Instead, the little circle tag pulls out to reveal the message. Fun to do.
To make this card, do all the stamping and adhere all the pieces together except that green one. On that green one (which will serve as a pocket), put adhesive only on the far left of it. Then, adhere the right with three brads. This leaves a pocket for the tag to pull out of. You could also tuck a gift card in there.
Well, off I go. Have a great night. 🙂
