Smile and the World Smiles With You!!!

At least that is what this little guy thinks!!! He has so many people in his life that he pretty much thinks it is always party time. You can see from this HUGE smile that he loves it!
And I wanted to share a card with you - a rather different card.
I used a piece of plastic by Plaid that you would normally purchase to cut your own stencils with. It is a great weight, it is slightly cloudy and makes for a fun card.
I used Queen & Co. felt and glued that to the front of the plastic. Some of their felts are self-adhesive, this particular one is one of their first releases of felt and it required me adding glue but that was actually very easy. I added a couple different sizes of rhinestones to the middles of some of the flowers.
I used a completely separate piece of patterned paper to create a liner for my card. The pattern can be slightly seen through the cloudy plastic front and with the particular paper I used, it has another pattern on the reverse side so it made for a fun inside of the card. A line of glue tape along the top, back of the liner is enough to attach it to the outside card. This was finished with a simple rub-on phrase.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
