No, its not my new exercise regimen!
Years ago (and I mean YEARS) I bought a 'pull and stand' card kit ( 'kit' is a bit of a stretch, since it only contained the cards themselves, but hey ho, I bought them anyway!) from CREATE AND CRAFT.TV, thinking (like you do) that they would be a great addition to my crafting stash and of the hundreds of fabulous cards I would make with them. Did I?
NO, not a one!
The idea is that you decorate the front and the pull mechanism (which is also the stand), glue the appropriate bits together and et voile you have a very unusual card. Well, this is what I have eventually made from the kit...
I used a VERY old piece of RECOLLECTIONS 'Valentine' paper from an old, old paper stack, for the front and back mats. The banner is from my stash, the flower and cloud toppers are from AMY TANGERINE 'Yes, Please' 'bits'. I have stamped onto the cloud with an old 'love' stamp using STAMPIN UP ink (tempting turquoise).
...pull the ribbon
...pull all the way
fold it over (and stand) - this is the back
The sentiment is (again) from an old collection I have in my stash and is stamped using MEMENTO ink (black).
