Word Search Pull-Out

Okay-I am beginning to wonder if anybody is out there? Either way, I suppose I still enjoy doing this blog.

I got a new background stamp awhile ago and needed to use it this week. Honestly, with this one, I had no idea what I was going to do with it. So, I looked on splitcoast for a little inspiration and came up with this.

It's not my typical style-but I love it! And my kids think it would be great fun to receive it, so I suppose that means that it is a success!

The background stamp is Stampin' Up's retired Word Search. The card was actually really easy and fast to make. The main paper is double sided designer cardstock from Sam's Club. They come in 12x12 size. I just cut it to a strip, folded it in half and trimmed off a bit at the top. (I wanted to make sure it would fit in a normal car-sized envelope.) Then I used a square punch I have to punch that square in the front and glued the sides together. Then I stamped the word search on another paper and trimmed it to fit in the main part of the card. I added the tab at the top with another file folder tab punch I have. Then I stamped (and embossed on some-sorry the sentiment is hard to see in the first above picture.) the sentiment and put all of the front together. On some, I added some page pebbles for fun over the stamped circles. I slid the word search in and stapled the ribbon at the top and wala! (So, the word search pulls out for the kids to do for fun.)

I love to hear what you think or any suggestions you have for improvements. Thanks to all those who have shared their opinions already on it. :)
