I can't tell you how many hours I spend on Pinterest. I'm sure the number would be embarrassing! It does help me discover new types of cards and paper projects though! I had never heard of a floating card... but as soon as I saw them, I knew I would be making some soon! When the Doodlebug Design Team was challenged to create projects featuring the new Confetti Shaped Sprinkles and the Sunshine Alphabet stickers I knew this type of card would be perfect! Take a peek...
These cards were so fun to make. For the card base you want to cut a piece of cardstock 4.25" x 7". Score this piece at 1.5" at the top. Cut a piece of transparency film 4.25" x 5.5. Tuck the transparency sheet under the 1.5" flap of the card base and glue to the flap. This gives you your basic card. I then cut another piece of the card base paper 1.5" x 4.25" and glued it along the bottom of the transparency sheet. Then I decorated with some of the patterned papers from Hey Cupcake Collection.
On the transparency portion of the card, I added my sentiments using the new Sunshine Alphabet Stickers and sprinkled some confetti sprinkles. I finished off with some adorable icons from the Hey Cupcake Odds & Ends. Here are some close ups...
I love how the transparency sheet makes the alphas and confetti pieces really pop! If you use the Confetti Sprinkles or Sunshine Alphas in your projects, be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram. We love to see your projects! That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
