DAY 2, STOP# 11 (ATUTTLETIME)
Welcome to DAY 2 of the coolest blog hop that I've ever been invited to participate. I cannot get over the amazing cards my blog friends have created for this hop. I am so excited and cannot wait to make some of them over the next few months!!!! Cardmaking is such a fun hobby, but making cards that ARE fun...priceless! Many many thanks to Monica, our awesome hostess for coming up with such a cool blog line up. Assembling such an event was no easy task!!! Monica...
Ok, on to my card creation....As with my Day 1 creation, this is my first time trying the "SWING/FLIP" card...Despite the fact that at several times this week, I have questioned my sanity and what have I gotten myself into in preparing for this blog hop??? I am so hooked on these interactive, fun cards...and who doesn't love a fun challenge!!! Certainly I do...so here we go......
This card is for my sister's bday next month...
|Closed front cover of card|
|This is the opened, inside of the card...place to write/type in a note.|
To see how this card "flips" open, please check out my short video of the card in "action."
I am so grateful to all the crafty ladies who don't mind sharing how to replicate their creations...I found some excellent instructions for this card, complete with materials list, template, step-by-step photo instructions AND video. Can't beat that...It can be found on the Splitcoast Stampers tutorials by clicking here! Their site is awesome, with so many instructions!!! The video was very helpful to watch after reading through the instructions. There is a template on the website, which was invaluable at showing how to cut/score the card. The materials I used are:
1 piece of 5 1/2" x 6 3/4" cardstock for the card base
2 pieces of 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" cardstock for the first layer of the inside card (the portion the flips)
2 pieces of 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" cardstock for the center message
Embellishments, I used flowers and Stickles.
All the cards I make are with someone specific in mind. As I mentioned earlier, this is a card for my sister's birthday. Growing up, she and I used to love a song called "The Tree Song." For some reason, over the past few weeks this song has popped up in my head as I have spoken to her. I plan to type the chorus of the song for the inside of the card.
For the cover artwork, I used the Serenade Cricut cartridge to cut a 2 inch tree...Then, I used my watercolor color pencils to draw a peaceful nature scene and Stickles to add some bling. I purposely kept the card fairly simple and peaceful...with a hint of sparkle. I think she will love it....
and I hope you do, too! This was a fun card to make...You should really try it some time!
