4/18 Stampin' Up! Bright Blossoms with Loving Thoughts Telescope Card

This is one of the cards that my customers got to make at a recent class. It's a Telescope Card. It's my first time to make one . . . but I've seen lots of examples of them before. They are actually pretty quick and easy to make . . . especially with the Big Shot Machine! This particular one showcases the stamp set called Bright Blossoms from the Summer Smooches Collection. The sentiments are from the Occasions Mini Catalog and belong to the Loving Thoughts stamp set.

This is the next view of the card . . . again a cute little flower from the Bright Blossoms set. And just look at how pretty that Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper is!! Wow! This green print is probably my favorite piece. I just love that burst of limeade color!

And finally, this photo shows the card completely opened up with another sweet flower from the Bright Blossoms set. What the photos do not show . . . and that I should probably mention is that I backed the circle of DSP with a circle of Lucky Limeade card stock. Not only did this make the middle circle piece more sturdy, but it also hides the bright orange paper that is on the other side of the DSP! I like to keep my cards coordinated . . . front and back!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by Stamping to Share!
