Card Display-Sweethearts cart

Happy Thursday, oh how the days are flying.  I display a lot of my cards and am always looking for a new card display, so I put my noggin to it and came up with this - this is my prototype so it is not fussied up, but I will have one soon as I am working on a very special Christmas card.  This is the Fleur D Lis cut at 11.649wide and 10.989high or you can just fill a 12"X12" mat. I do a lot of 6"X6" cards, if you do basically an A-2 card which is 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" you could make it smaller.  I cut it twice once with my deep blade from chipboard and once with my regular blade from white card stock.  Adhered the two together.  I then scored at the base and folded it up, scored the 2 of the 3 flowers both flaps fold up.  The two arms fold behind and then up to create the stand in the back.  I will try to do a step by step soon.
Here it is holding the card.  Have a great day as we again head into another wet weekend here in Northern CA. Hugs

Clever, clever woman!!!!! I have a question that may seem silly but here goes. Could you adhere your plain paper to the chipboard and cut them out as one piece or will the cricut rebel?

I do love your stand and am off to scraplift it as soon as I sign off here. Thanks so much for always being willing to share. hugs, eileen

Eileen you are so welcome, please please post when you have one finished, I would love to see it. I know the little quirks of my cricut and know that it would snag in the corners, the only way to really know is do a test one first. Hugs, Sandi

What a great and interesting display! I can't wait to see what you do when you trick one out, and I'll be watching for the step-by-step!
