An Open Panel Technique Swirly Bird Flourishing Phrases Botanical Builders Thank You Card

This card technique is called "Open Panel".  It's an easy technique to do plus it's fun and different!

I did this technique back in March.  You can see my card here.  There is also a link to the card where I got the idea from.  

It's pretty simple. You cut your card stock base 7-1/2" x 4-1/4" and score it at 5-1/2"  Then you cut your bottom panel. You can cut it any size you wish, just make sure you leave enough for an opening in the middle.  Here the bottom was cut 2" x 4-1/4".  And the focal panel was cut 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" and then a layer was added behind it.  I used Blushing Bride on mine.  

I stamped some words on the inside and a little Sweet Sugarplum flower next to them.  The flowers shows when the card is closed but not the words.  The words are from the "Flourishing Phrases" set. The flower was cut from the "Botanical Builders" framelits and the decorative paper is from the "Blooms and Bliss" Decorative Paper Series.  

My swap cards are ready for tonight!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
