Today is Crazy4Challenges day and it is a Sketch Challenge. I was in the middle of making Fathers Days cards and I just couldn’t come up with a Fathers Day card for this sketch, I think the bow and the scallops just had my mind leaning towards a more feminine card, then I got a call from a very dear friend who just called to see how I was doing, so I thought that I would make this card for her.
This is the sketch for the challenge

Ok, so originally I was a little stumped with this sketch challenge, because I have large wave dies, I have scallop dies, but I don’t have wavy scallop dies so I had to really think about it 🤔 and I decided to use a wave edge to cut the paper but I would trim it with a ribbon with a scalloped edge, and I also decided it would a 5″ x 7″ card.
I flipped the paper upside so the large wave would be on the left side and I had to run it through the big shot with the wave die twice. The paper came from my Costco stash.
I made the card base 5″x7″ out of Basic Grey cardstock from Stampin Up . I cut a piece of pink Costco paper 6 3/4″ by almost 4 3/4″ (I didn’t go all the way to the bottom as I knew it would be coved) and adhered it to the card front
I added white fun to the back of the curved piece as I want the front of the card to have a little bit of dimension.
then added it to the bottom of the card front.
Next, I chose a REALLY old Stampin’ Up stamp and stamped it onto Very Vanilla cardstock and coloured it in with my Stampin Up Alcohol markers (colouring is not my strong suit, I kinda wish I used a different shade of pink)
Because I used fun foam under the darker wavy piece and the oval piece has to sit over half of the wavy piece and half of the background, I put dimensional adhesive on the top of the oval and sticky strip on the bottom so the oval would sit level.
I added it and piece of Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon across the top. I added a Fork bow (not my video) to the ribbon strip, and three vanilla 1/2 pearls.
Now for the inside, because you know there has to be an inside lol. I decided to use Karen Burnistons Upsy Daisy Pop up die and I followed her video to create the mechanism. To make the hanging squares I had to cut out a few layers. I cut them out of the Basic Grey Cardstock because the other papers were way to thin. I cut out pink squares and the grey flowered paper was cut into the frames,
I had the words “Live Love Laugh” in my stash so I added them to the squares.
Before I added the mechanism I added pink paper to the inside of the card, I cut 2 pieces to 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and glued them to the inside top and bottom, the added the mechanism and the squares as per Karens Video.
I thought about adding something else to the inside but I actually liked the clean look to not having anything else on the inside.
