A Sugar Glider Hello from Angel's Landing

This week the Angel's Landing design team was asked to make a card. Well, since that's what I usually do, I decided I should at least make a different kind of card, so I chose this "spring" card. It's called such because when you pull it out of the envelope it "springs" up. (in theory anyway.. mine is kind of heavy with paper layers and embellishments) And yes, it does fit in an envelope. More specifically, an envelobox.

Isn't the image just the cutest? I printed it a few times, colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils, then cut and layered parts for a 3D effect. I stitched lots of branches on the main panel and then I did the same for the bottom stand part only to realize after that you can't see them when it's in position. Oh well - I get an E for effort. The flowers and branches were cut on my Cricut.

When folded flat it is somewhat thick from all the paper branches and flowers, but it does fit into the envelobox I made for it.
