Joy to the World

So I've been hammering out some solid hours on Fallout 4 and decided I needed a little break for some crafting time (and also because I think my eyes were really about to fall out from all that strain).  I used some really awesome products from Your Next Stamp to make this very interactive card, including their Front Door Die Set and Sprinkles - Spreading Christmas Cheer Stamp set with matching dies.  The patterned papers are from my stash, and the cardstock is Recollections from Michael's.

I'm entering this card into the Your Next Stamp blog challenge.  This week, I used both the color AND the sketch challenge, with some definite modifications to the sketch.  That was mostly to make room for the spring to fit nicely so that the bunny would pop out when the door was opened.  The spring I used is from Close to My Heart, and is really a little too strong to be behind the door.  It kept popping the door out!  I had to use some velcro to keep the door closed!  I finished the front of the card with the die cut wreath and bow from the door die set, using Copic markers to give depth to the cuts.  The bunny was also colored with Copics (yeah... I see now why everyone loves them...).

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go spend some more time in the Commonwealth blowing up some more Super Mutants and ghouls...


  1. What a fun interactive card - especially with a sweet surprise behind the door. Your card has a great mix of patterns and textures. The wood door is perfect. Thanks for joining in Challenge #27 at YNS~
