Stand Up card

Morning everyone!
Another wet one! I'm trying really hard not to let the weather depress me! How about you?

A friend visited me last evening and we stamped for 2 hours... haven't done that in a long time!
I found this card yesterday at "the creative closet by cindy lawrence" -http://onehappystamper.typepad.com/
She is one of my favs.... I check in with her almost every day just to see what she is up to! Yesterday she had this beautiful "Stand Up" card using the new DP Cottage Wall and Rich Razzleberry - I had just rec'd my DP and the Herb Expression stamp set so we cased this card last night... little "tiddly" getting the DP cut and positioned correctly but I love the end result... and the colors! Well! What can I say! Aren't they gorgeous?

This is the view looking down on the card...
This card is very easy to make:
a) Take a piece of 12 X 12 CS and cut at 51/2 by 12.
b) Score at 2", 4", 8", 10".
c) Measure 3" down from top on each outer side
d) Make a diagonal cut from the 3-inch mark to the top point of the 4" score point ... repeat on the other side cutting diagonally from the 3-inch mark to the top point of the 8" score point. this leaves you with a full size card front.
e) The rest is up to you!!!! Let your creative juices flow!
Have a great day!
Thanks for peeking!
