I am sharing cards this week made with the really fun Hooray for Surprises Bundle.  This is from the January - April Mini Catalog and is a bundle that I totally overlooked until a good friend pointed it out to me, and I am so happy she did!  With this bundle, you can make interactive cards.  So I think it would be a great set to make masculine cards or cards for kids.  They usually like to tear things apart, right?

Today's card, however, is not interactive.  Sometimes I have to build my way up to doing something that I fear may be a little challenging.  But I promise the rest of the cards this week will be interactive.

Today's card is made with the Fractured Card Technique (aka a Shutter Card).  I demonstrated this technique on my Learning with Friends video series a couple of weeks ago.  If you missed it, you can watch the replay by using the link to my YouTube Channel below.

I used the Bright and Beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) which I'm so happy is NOT retiring.  This 6" x 6" DSP is so happy and colorful which makes it very versatile.

This version of the Fractured Card Technique is the simplest and most common, but to see additional versions be sure to watch the video.

The flowers and leaves that I used to decorate the card are from the Hooray for Surprises Bundle.  The coordinating dies make quick work of cutting them out.

Color selection was also easy as I just picked colors from the stars on the DSP.

I made quick work of decorating the inside of the card and the envelope by using some more of the DSP.
