Here is the card I made this month:

I wanted to make a card which looked like a FOX.  Hope you see the whimsey in making a Triangle Fold Star and the strategic placing of the off white pattern paper to mimic fox cheeks and the flourish in the red paper to resemble the nose.  The metal holder bounced some light off washing out some of the details.

Here is a closer look at the card:
The medallion in the middle is popped up with 3D Foam applied to only half of the surface (this ensures the medallion hangs over the center and allows for easier opening of the card).

Here is the card opening up:

And the inside . . .

I used the new Jubilee paper pack for the reds and the neutral from Frosted paper pack.

And if you are curious about the stand holdiing the card . . .

I made this with a tin sheet and used shelving paper in the cricut to cut a design using Art Philosophy.  Once the image was cut, I peeled off the paper backing and stuck the cut image directly to the tin and wrapped around some of the flowers.  The colored balls are backed with magnets and highlight the flowers of the cut image.  I actually use this for recipe cards but it works for photographing cards as well.
