FYI I💙U-C4C-503

Welcome to the weekend and another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is a Sketch challenge. I was a little short for time this week as I have been preparing for a really special card that I will posting soon (Monday I hope) so I thought this would be a fun card to make using a Scrapbooking kit. The benefit to using a Scrapbooking kit is that all the cardstock, paper and stickers will coordinate so if you are short on time this is a quick way to pull a card together. I also thought this kit would make a good masculine card to have on hand as I generally have an easier time making more fancy feminin cards that I am generally short of masculine cards. I think this one hit the mark.

Here is this weeks Sketch

and here is the card that I made for this challenge

Like I mentioned above I used the supplies from a Scrapbooking kit to create this card, this kit is a retired Stampin Up kit called “Creative License” and the colours are all listed below.

To create the mechanism I used Karen Burnistons Spinner Square Pop-up die set. I REALLY recommend watching at least 1 of her 2 videos that she has made as this mechanism is fun and very versatile, it can be a little tricky to get right. I watch this VIDEO when ever I make this style of card.

Correction, below- it should say Card base, not base base.

I wanted the four squares to have a similar look so three of them were created using stickers from the kit, but there wasn’t a Happy Birthday, so I stamped that on the fourth square and did my best to have it blend in with the other three squares.

Now for the inside. In my craziness I thought that I would be able to take photos and describe how to assemble the mechanism, the reality is Karen has 2 great videos that do it way better that I ever could (both are linked above)

Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.
