I have several cards in mind using these
But the idea for this card just made me smile so, of course, I made it first! I started with the digital patterned paper and matched it with Tangerine Tango and Bashful Blue cardstocks by Stampin’ Up. I wanted to give the plaid a bit of dimension, so I scored it on all the orange lines…it was subtle, but it did the job. Then I sponged the edges of the plaid panel before attaching it to a larger mat. The panel with the ducks looked a bit too plain, so I embossed that with the Argyle embossing folder.
Looks like your ho-hum average card, but upon closer look, you see the panel with the ducks is actually a flap which opens to say this:
And the statement continues on the inside. Sad but true.
That wraps it up. Except to mention I added some yellow and white Baker’s Twine to the end of the tab.
I made another card with a newer Eyelet Outlet Duck Brad…only when I made the card I thought it was a goose. Apparently, I can’t tell the difference. 😉 Although when I look at him, I do hear “Aflac” in the background!
