BSS MONDAY IDEA - BUILDING BLOCK CARD.

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF MONDAY IDEA.

Do you believe this weather?  Well, moving away from Valentines and winter, I went in search
of a new fancy fold card.  I found this great  card idea on Split Coast Stampers.  There is a
great tutorial HERE

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/buildingblockcard/


Here is the card I made opened up.

Here is a closeup of the front image. LOVE IT!


This is a closup of the inside.  Building block part.


This is a closeup of the card opened up fully.
This card fold for mailing!



Card Recipe

Stamps- Mailbox -Impression Obsession Cling (H1934)
Sentiment stamp - Hampton Art Stamps- Friendship (DF2138)
Paper - Blue and white card stock, Green Star paper is Graphic 45-Mother Goose 6x6 Pad
I cut small squares and rectangles and added triangles to look like envelopes for
the first inside edge and sponged with light blue dye ink.
The metal letters I have had for ages they are from EK Success 
They spell out " U GOT MAIL"
Colored with copics.  Stamped the little butterfly twice and
fussy cut and popped it up on the mailbox.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later.........

I think I am fickle, most of the time. I have not thought about my IO stamps in some time. This is an awesome image, which is beautifully colored in blue! Now I must go dig out my stamps... lol!
