Think Outside the Box for your Cards

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a fun card with you that is a little different than normal.  I saw this layout on a Facebook group I am in by another demonstrator and I am sorry but I don't remember her name.  But, to whomever the demonstrator was thank you, I loved your card design.  So I CASEd (Copy and Selectively Edit or Copy and Share Everything) this card from her.  I changed up my paper and stamp set but used her card design because it was so different.  Here's a look at my card for today.

I thought this was such a fun way to think outside the box when creating a card that I had to try it.  I know you're probably thinking "What's so different than a normal card!" or "It looks like a regular card to me."  Well that's where the interesting part comes in.  Yes, It does look like a standard card, but it has a little twist to it.  Instead of the entire card card opening up, only the center part opens.  You did read that correctly, and I am sure your still thinking yeah, so dose a regular card.  Well, that would be true, but this little gem isn't quite like that.  It takes the standard card or I should say standard looking card up a notch.  Here's what I mean.  

With the card opening with the smaller card on the front we have elevated our standard card to the fun fold level.  With super easy and little effort I should add.  Sometimes when you think outside the standard box and do one little thing just a little different you're taking that same card up a little bit.  As the demonstrator did with her card layout; just by the one little change she made it changed the entire card and added a little surprise and delight to the recipient.  Who would have expected that the card was a card on a card.  Not me when I first saw it but once I did I was like all the light bulbs in the world light up!  I was like omg that is so smart and cool.
 As you can tell I really liked this card layout and I am sure that I will use it again soon on another card.  I liked it so much that I created the little card recipe for you to pin.  Well, that's my card for today, I hope that you liked it as much as I did.  If you need any of the supplies I used to create today's card you can find them all in my online store.  The Shopping List below has the full list of supplies that I used.  Thanks for dropping by today, I will see you again tomorrow for another Episode of Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping.  So until then Happy Stampin'
