I am the SURPRISE GUEST DESIGNER for Week 3.  If you are a subscriber to Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition  I will be sharing with you a FABULOUS 3D project and tutorial using one of that week’s featured sets.  But WHICH set is a SURPRISE, too!

Now remember…the only way to see my SURPRISE GUEST DESIGNER project is to be a subscriber to Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition and sign up now while you can save $5 off the subscription price.  The early bird special of $24.95 ends Saturday, May 14th at 11:55 pm.  Don’t delay!

I was so excited to get the email from Connie & Mary and can’t wait to create something to share with subscribers.  For now here is a fabulous card using the Strength & Hope stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini catalog.

This is a fun window card.  The circle in the front of the card is punched out and everything inside is actually on the inside of the card.  The fun butterfly accent was created using the thumping technique.  Here are some other views of the card.
