First, here's the sketch for the week which is by my very good friend and Mischief Maker Renee Lynch:
Didn't she do a great job with her first sketch? Here's my card:
Offbeat Backgrounds to stamp a polka dot pattern for the background paper and embossed the zipper panel with a linen impression plate. The sweet bird is stamped with gingham three times on aqua mist cardstock, cut out and popped up with dimensional foam. The zipper panel is a new interactive die by Papertrey Ink. When the recipient follows the instruction arrow stamp that says "Pull Here", this is what they will find:
This is so cute, such a sweet zipper card! I think this card is just adorable and I like that you used only two colors, well white! I love the sketch that Renee came up with. I placed one small order with WMS then the next day I placed another small order , I was mad at myself for not just ordering it the first time! Love your card, Cathy!
I really like this zipper effect and it may be one of my first sets from PTI!! Love your card - great colour!
It's fabulous!! :)
Love the colors...
and that birdie is finally working it's way to my house...
you and Kelly talked me into it ;)!
And this would make SUCH an adorable baby card...
I just love this idea! :)
Wow. What a great card, and great take on the sketch. You are making me think that I need that Sewing Box set. Too bad I just placed an order. Love the colors you chose, and fabulous use of the zipper die.
Fantastic Cathy! What a great zipper card, love those colours too.
I think this is your signature WM set and only because you work it so well. You make this one look new every time I see it! I love zip sentiment and the pretty blue color!
Ohhhh best zipper card EVER! Just because it has Sewing Box birdie with that super sweet sentiment...with a perfect match for it on the inside! Love the mix of texture and dots and the sweet little embellishments. The blue reminds me of a robin's egg...A most awesome springy bird-day card!
Oh and the birdie is GINGHAM, chirrrrp!
Oh, Cathy--love how you used the birdie for a zipper card! It's just adorable! Love the gingham and polka dots--it looks so Springy!
Awww, I've always loved that "a little birdie told me" sentiment :) This is adorable! And the zipper makes it even more fun!
Yeah, this is fabulous!! LOVE that zipper die, and the stamp set that matches thew WMS perfectly! A match made in heaven! Love the mono colour too, a really gorgeous card!
Oh my goodness, Cathy! This is simply adorable! I missed out on those zipper dies and I'm becoming more convinced that I need them! Such a great card! And a great sketch, too!
oh my goodness, Cathy! I love, love, love it!!! I sadly, do not own any WMS stamps (yet) but I do admire and follow them, and that very stamp set (sewing box hugs) was what drew me in to them and really put them on my radar! I love what you did with it and that is so cute the way you did the sentiment with the zipper die! I love the gingham on that birdie!
This is one of my fav sets as well! love your plaid bird and the pretty blues - and how fun is the zipper feature!!! thanks for playing with the WMS sketch again this week Cathy!
I love this, Cathy! The sentiment on the diagonal and your zipper feature are amazing! Great job!
This card is so cute! Love the the WMS set.
This is so, so cute, Cathy! Love the soft blue, the cute birdie, and the zipper panel!
I LOVE this card!! The color is gorgeous, it has just the right amount of cute factor and the zipper part is fab! You rocked this sketch Cathy.
Adorable card, Cathy! Love the zipper die and how you used it with the sewing box set.
To answer your question on my blog: we're moving to Washington DC. It's where hubby started his career, and so now we're moving back. It will be an adjustment to not live in FL, since I've been here all my life, but it will be exciting to be living in a new place too!
This is so CUTE!! Lovely take on the sketch Cathy. What a lovely little patterned birdie and one of my all time favourite colour combos. you are so lucky to have the special zipper die from PTI - delivery is so incredibly expensive from US to the UK!!
All together now... AWWWWW!!! This is such a sweet, lovely card! Thanks so much for playing along with the Mischief Makers this week! xx
