A fast and easy card for a friend impacted by the recent storm. Her mail box is filled with utility bills, and ironically, she waits for her home to be on the grid again. So, her friends set out to make some cards to make the mailbox a brighter place.
This is card uses Every Day Pop-Up Cards for the bird (at 1.5″ tall) and Cricut Craft Room Basic for the 2″ tall “HOPE” letters (the shadow feature). I used the Cricut Craft Room to weld the letters together after I had narrowed the “O” slightly as it is a super round “O” in the Craft Room. The “HOPE” is pop-dotted as is the bird and its layers. The bird has a small glittered flower in its beak. Most of the paper came from Echo Park’s Hello Summer paper.
The completed card measures 5.25″ square. The first layer of background paper is 4 inches square, the second layer is 4.5″ square, and the kraft card base is 5.25″ tall by 10.5″ long (folded in a side opening card).
I printed Emily Dickinson’s poem, “Hope” is the thing with feathers”, framed it with cardstock, and adhered it to the inside.
