Mega Nestibilities Pop Out Card

Finally got to play last night after spending more time than I expected tidying my craft stash – although it does feel great afterwards

I needed a thank you card for a dear friend after I had a lovely evening at her house and also wanted to do this pop out idea using the

Mega Nestibilities die

On this card I have matted a few layers on the front of the card & then used a  single decoupaged flower

 The basics of the card is using the folded technique to achieve a large card

Workshop here if you missed it

Below is a story of why I used this flower


The inside and using a off cut of the backing paper for the inside

The edges are set backwards and i`ll explain the reason in a workshop for this – as there are ways around it but I kept it as I liked the extra depth it gave


Just a close up of the flower – the image is from the Jayne Netley Mayhew cd


I just have to add this story why I made this card – it`s about  Helen the friend I went to,  who is also Erin`s Godmother

After meeting some 14 old years ago through a friend we shared weekly craft get together and our friendship grow – Helen doesn`t have any children , but just adores Erin – so I wanted her to be her Godmother

It was at Erin`s first birthday party Helen saw a picture of my Grandad in his signal box at work – the picture was hidden behind a door in our lounge as I found it hard to look at but also wanted the picture up – she said her Grandad worked on the railway – we talked and it was the same railway , when I said his name she couldn`t believe it – she asked did my Grandad grow Fuchsias to sell as her Dad used to get them from a railway man

Yes it was and they were good friends too – how strange that Helen had been to my Grandad`s house before I even knew her and what was lovely she spoke of what a lovely kind man he was  

So that`s why I have done this card to give to Helen and it has brought  to me that special time when we found out they knew each other


I`ll add the workshop very soon
