Pootlers Blog Hop - A Kinda Eclectic surprise thank you card



Thank you for stopping by my blog today on our wonderful Pootler's Blog Hop, whether you're a regular visitor or this is your first time, I hope you enjoy my post, it is lovely to have you here.

Today I am sharing a thank you card which has a very special surprise inside. 



I just love the big, bold star burst from the Simply Eclectic stamp set, it is so versatile. Here I have stamped it in Hello Honey, one of the 2014-2016 in-colours. I must admit, it wasn't one of my favourites but has really grown on me and it does go well teamed with Lost Lagoon, another of the in-colours.

This card however holds a special surprise. It look like a normal card when closed but when you open it, it reveals its secrets.



It opens up to reveal a lovely boxed section.




The inside is stamped with a matching star burst, scattered with rhinestones to really make it pop! The internal sentiment come from a set you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration until March 31st.


And the great thing about this card? It fold flat for easy postage.



I'll be adding a tutorial for making this card next week, would be lovely if you popped back for it and if you'd like to buy any of the supplies to make this card, check out my on-line store below or give me call, I'd love to hear from you.
