Card-i-gami, Panels and Roses...Oh My

Today I have loads of photos to share with you, so they may be a bit small. In order to see them full size and get a view of the images, simply click on the photo.

Yesterday I shared the outside of a card with you. Today, I would like to share the inside.

Cardigami pink rose card insideDo you see that flower, ha ha ha, silly question, I know, since it is hard to miss. This rose is from the Printable and Digital Mall called Aimee Asher.  It is called Card-i-gami and is the neatest concept.

I paid $2.95 for the digital file and received not one, but 6 flowers in 4 different colors AND matching envelopes.  You also receive some clip art of the rose images with leaves. That means I can print out 6 different cards with matching envelopes or print the clip art and layer onto a card front.

Another great aspect of digital images is the resizing that you can do. This is a 3 x 3” card, so the rose is just under 3”. When I opened the file, though, the rose took up a whole 11 x 8 ½ page. At that size it could be used as the actual card itself. Here are a few more photos for you to see. 

Cardigami pink rose closed Cardigami pink rose inside The flower does look quite pretty by itself. Open, it looks like this. I opted to stamp on each "petal" and leave the center blank for personalizing. To close, you just follow the numbers on the front of the petals, folding #1 first and continue to #5.

The Angel Policy for this flower requires that the information on the back of the rose be visible when the project is complete. Since my first thought was to adhere it to a card front, I needed to rethink my project. Card-i-gami is available in other designs as well a box tops.  Super cool.

Next I would like to share another super cool site, Crafts U Print. They have over 48,000 projects that you can purchase and download. When you go to check it out, make sure you have a bit of time to get a really good feel for their products. One simply can loose track of time browsing them all.

They also have loads of categories, styles and images that I could not even touch on them in a post. Here are 2 of the cards I downloaded from them.

Spiral panel lilacs This is what they call a Spiral Panel card. I am so glad that the images are all colored and ready to cut. I simply can not imagine trying to color 5 of the same image EXACTLY the same so that they could be used for this technique.

I sprayed the page with glimmer mist before cutting each section out. This gave the image a wonderful shimmery look. I used outline stickers on the corners, silver cord around the frame and liquid pearls on the center of each flower.

This image called Forget-me-not spiral pyramid cost a mere $1.23. 

I have one more card to share with you. I purchased it from Crafts U Print also.  

Vintage lace rose with pearls

Isn't this just gorgeous! I fell in love with it instantly, along with plently of other images, LOL.

If you are not fond of cutting detailed images, I would not recommend  this image to you.

There are up to 3 layers that need to be cut out...for need to cut out 2 of the butterflies that will be attached on top of each other to make a 3 layer butterfly.

This image is called...ready...Elegant Pink Roses On Fancy Lace Frame With Embellishments. WOW, that is a long name!

Again, this card was a mere $1.23, no shipping, of course, and I can print it out as many times as I would like. Perfect!

Well, this is one long post. I am so glad you stuck with me :o) If you noticed that the font kept changing through out the post, I did too. I just have no idea why, nor was I able to change it. So weird, LOL

Hugs, Sandy O
