    Darling card-and not that difficult thanks to your tutorial. Would the mechanism still work if you put a piece of cardstock on the inside front of the card to hide the mechanism?

    Betsy – you’re the BEST! Not only is this the perfect stamp set to make this kind of card, you showed all the touches like cutting off the stem, attaching the legs to the pull-tab, and finishing off the rear of the pumpkin. Your directions, as always, were fabulous. I consider myself mechanically inclined, but this construction is a bit more complex, and baffling, until I saw your video.

    I’ve been following you, and learning almost everything I know from you, for ten years. Your beautifully designed sets, and your ability to teach any concept, make you the heart of Papertrey. It has been a dog’s age since I have left you a comment, due to a seriously over stretched life. Once I get the body parts that took a beating in the last few years, I hope to tell you constantly how much joy and pleasure you’ve brought to my life. Not only are you an amazing artist and teacher, you do it with kindness and grace.

    A huge THANK YOU!
