Seeing Double?

You may ask, am I seeing double?  Well, the answer is Yes and No!  These are kind of the same cards but a little different...can you figure out the differences before reading on?
Well, here is what is different.  First of all, the placement of the dots and stars are different, but the major differences is the back ground papers are opposite and the inside papers are different.  Lastly, the name inside is different, too!  Did you catch all those differences?  They are simple yet "fancy" on the inside!  The sky is the limit on the center pleated pop up card ideas.  I do believe it is one of my favorites to do and give to family and friends.  The element of the unexpected yet fun!
And yes the patriotic colors are done on purpose, because these birthdays are so close to America's Birthday.  So I figured it was only appropriate to make these cards that way!

I used:
Cricut Craft Room Basics Cartridge for all the circle and star cuts
A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge for the the Letter cuts inside
Red/White/Blue Cardstock
DCWV The Glitzy Glitter Stack for the stars
Ribbon from my stash
HB Sentiment from Hobby Lobby
CuttleBug Stars embossing folder
Dimensional tape

Thank you so much for stopping by and seeing all of the cards I have been busy doing!
I hope you have a great day!

Entered Challenge:

White with a Little Splash of Color!

Hello!  Well, I am trying to do a little better at getting my cards done and out in the mail in time for the recipient to receive it on their birthday.  Unfortunately, my niece had to wait for this one...Hay, handmade cards take time to come up with and then to make them!  Right?  Or, Better late than never! 
Okay, enough excuses!  LOL  This card didn't take to long to make once I figured out what I was doing.  Simple and elegant!  I like the use of the negative space for the flower...I am thinking the next time that the background paper behind the flower should be colored and then the flower could be white...we shall see.

I used:
White Cardstock
Core'Dinations Pearls cardstock
Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge for the flower cuts
A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge for the Scalloped edge for the HB Sentiment
Love's in the Air CuttleBug Embossing Folder
Martha Stewart Glitter
Pink//Yellow Stickles
Pink Satin Ribbon from my stash
Lace flowered Ribbon from my stash
HB Stamped Sentiment from Hobby Lobby

Thank you so much for coming by and checking
out my work! 
 I hope you have a wonderful day filled with many blessings!
