Hello friends! Hope your week is going well. I am really ready for spring, aren't you? I hope this Heartfelt Creations project I have to share with you makes you think of Spring! Today I used the Butterfly Medley Collection to make a Tunnel Card and I absolutely love the color combo!

Instructions: The finished card will measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Cut one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper at 5 1/2" to create two card bases. One card base you will score at 4 1/4" and fold in half. The other card base you will score at 2 1/2" from each end. This will create the tunnel portion. Cut a card front from the Butterfly Medley Paper collection to 4" x 5 1/4" and score at 2" then fold in half. Now glue this folded card front into place at the fold of the main card base. This will be the portion you will see thru the tunnel. Using a Classic Circle die, die cut a circle in the middle of the second card base to create a "hole" to peak through in the tunnel. Now you will glue the tunnel piece over the main card base - just put glue on the 2 1/2" portion so that your tunnel can fold out when you open the card. Glue strips of the patterned paper into place onto each side of the tunnel. Cut out a card front for the front of the card plus a tag from the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection.
Now it is time to decorate the card. Stamp the Botanical Rose flower onto purple cardstock using purple ink 3 times. Stamp the Botanical Rose Flower onto soft blue cardstock using soft blue ink 2 times. Die cut these flowers using the matching die. Using the paper shaping tools, shape the smallest flowers and add pearls to the middle. Stamp the small rose image from the Botanical Rose Bouquet Cling set onto white cardstock using Espresso Truffle Memento Ink 2 times. Stamp the large rose image from the Botanical Rose Bouquet set onto white cardstock using the Espresso Truffle Memento Ink. Color these with copic markers and fussy cut them out. Cut the sentiment "Reap Happiness" sign from one of the sheets of patterned paper in the collection and adhere into place using 3d foam squares. Add flowers inside the tunnel to decorate using 3d foam squares. Add the small Botanical Rose bouquet images to the tunnel portion of the card and decorate with the small flowers as shown inside the card. Decorate the front of the card as shown. Add the bow to the top of the tag to complete this card.
