Our lovely daughter Lucy is a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and in two days time she'll have done one year of her 18 month mission! I had a package ready to send her this afternoon, and wanted to make a quick-ish card to include with it.
I miss her incredibly, but to say she is happy and loving mission life is an understatement!
For her card I used Karen Burniston's Twist Panel Pop-Up die set. All the mechanism pieces are included in the set, plus the panel layers, bunting flags and pop-up heart.
The mechanism folding down, as the card closes.
I used Concord & 9th's 'All About You' die set to decorate the first two panels, letters from Sizzix's Thinlits 'Paper Cuts Alphabet' for the third, and a stamp from Flora and Fauna's 'Birthday' set for the last panel.
The scalloped trim was made with a die from Sizzix's Triple Circle Flip-its die set.
The large number 1, and Anniversary banner are from Stampin' Up's 'Number of Years' and 'Large Numbers' sets.
