Here it is the 15th of the month and time for another Dueling Darlings Post. This month our sole hostess is Melina and she asked us to pay tribute to our Dazzling Leader: Jeanette!
This card was to honor all she does for us behind the scenes keeping the Dazzlers team organized and such. Of course, many of us know her as the "Forest Ranger" on Splitcoast Stampers where she regularly hosts the Forest Swaps. Besides just a swap, the Forest is a wonderful place to hang out and chat and many of us have formed fast friendships there.
For this reason our cards were to be forest related and Jeanette LOVES designer paper, so we were to use DP on our cards. This is what I came up with:
This is one of those cards where the center panel flips around when you extend out the accordion folds. So here is the flip side of the panel with a sentiment on it about friendship:
You can see that I had to piece the DP around the folds to make it work. But I really like the wood grained paper. It gives it a bit of a rustic feel.
Melina asked us all to surprise Jeanette with happy mail, so as this blog post is happening, this card is making its way via USPS to her mailbox. I hope she enjoys our little card flood and knows how special she is to so many of us!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other Dazzlers & their tribute to Jeanette. After that, visit the Divas and admire their creations in honor of their team leader, Kelly! Links to their blogs are in my sidebar.
