The front is pretty self-explanatory. The list of products used are at the bottom of this post. For the inside, I wanted to cover up the recording thingies on the bottom but also have something that would indicate where to push to get the card to play. I stamped a piece of Marina Mist card stock with the floral border stamp from the Vintage Vogue stamp set using Night of Navy ink. I punched out a little flower using the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, inserted a Marina Mist brad, measured where it should be on the floral strip so that it would be over the play button, attached it to the floral strip with a glue dot and adhered the whole thing to the card. The top of the card has the holes that the sound comes through so I didn't want to cover them up (I was afraid it would muffle the sound too much). I stamped the round image from the Artistic Etchings stamp set on a piece of Marina Mist with Night of Navy ink and punched it out with the 1-3/4" Circle punch. I attached this to a piece of Night of Navy card stock and punched that out with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch. I then punched out the center of both with the 3/4" Circle punch while they were still attached and adhered the whole thing over where the sound comes out. It certainly is not the prettiest card I've ever done but I was so excited about being able to do this that it really didn't matter. I only wish the recording part of the card was a little longer than 10 seconds. Perhaps they'll be able to share this with their children some day. I hope you're having a wonderful day.
