I chose a bright and playful look for this week's challenge at Heart2Heart -- it's a card for a new young daddy. The "Happy Father's Day" sentiment is stamped on the envelope. A card like this could be used for just about any celebration!
For the tri-color background stamping on both sides of the cut CS, I used the heart, flower, and "I love you now & forever" circle stamps from the Sensational Seals. First I stamped the circle stamps; then I added the smaller stamps and simply kept rotating them all on the bright white CS.
I used the swing card (flip flap) design -- you can find a tutorial HERE.
