3-D Springy Card

I made this fun 3-D card in my Photoshop class this week.

I love that this used to be just a white piece of paper. We learned how to make the paper colored on both sides so that when you cut it out and fold it, it shows color from all angles.

Here it is flattened out. I used a gradiant from red to yellow to paint the flowers and hand painted the leaves digitally to show on the sides when it is folded.

Here is the inside pink color I added.

What a fun Springy card!

Emmitt says that he has a flower too that he can chew on.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Pretty springy card, Melissa! I think Emmitt would like to chew on it just as much as his toy flower!:)
