I got to make a third card today during my son's nap. I guess this is the one benefit from his teething, these monster size naps. I not only got to do two challenges, I also tried my hand at a cool new and surprisingly easy fancy fold thanks to Linda Bauwin. My challenges are for The Friday Mashup and Create with Connie and Mary.
For this challenge, I am just doing the "Congrats" part. Although I would love to try a shaker card too...maybe later this weekend I will give it a shot since I never do those cards!
Great colors, right? Here is my card:
The only problem with the flip cards is that they are hard to photograph because they don't stay closed. I used a clip to help keep it closed the best I could. Here it is opened up:
So I decided to go with a star theme. I thought this would be a great graduation card. The Circles Flip Card die is just great and all I did was run a normal card base through twice. It also comes with that scallop circle on the front as well as several other little dies. The Crushed Curry paper is actually the Irresistibly Yours DSP sponged in Crushed Curry. I just love this paper and really hope they bring something like this back in the new catalog. That would be major awesome-sauce!
The sentiment is from the stamp set Something to Say, and I am glad I used it because it really hasn't seen much ink. I added some of the Epoxy Stickers that I colored with a Calypso Coral blendability marker. I added some stars with the Itty Bitty Accents Star Punch and finished it off with some ribbon from Sale-A-Bration. This card is a little bigger than a normal card and would not fit in a traditional envelope. But I can easily bust out my Envelope Punch Board and make a custom made envelope, easy peasy, lemon squeezy!
Thanks for looking!
