It’s April, yay, and I am the host for the Crazy4Challenges Challenge Blog all month. This means that I get to choose the challenges for each week. According to the days of the year calendar April 3 is world party day. So for our first challenge of the month it is to have a party themed card. And what’s a party without gifts, balloons and streamers LOL. I’ve got bright colours and a fun double mechanism for my card, this is what I came up with. (Lol I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I shouldn’t be left unattended with the bling. Lol)
All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.
Please take the time to see the rest of the beautiful cards by the very talented design team C4C blog
I used Stampin Up Basic Black cardstock and patterned paper from my stash
The card base is a 4” x 9” gatefold card,
I used 2 Photo Collage Pop up mechanisms from Karen Burniston to create the inside. I have photos of the process but I recommend watching her VIDEO on how to assemble the mechanism
The Balloons and Streamers are from the Explosion Popup dieset, the gifts are from the Gift Pivot Panel dieset and the stars are from the Surprise Pop up dieset, all are from Karen Burniston.
Edit- below it should say “I added flat silver sequins randomly around the card” not sure how it got cut off the way it did.
Below is one of my favourite tricks when creating this style of card as I often get “catch points” I actually got a shout out about this tip from Karen Burniston on her Photo Collage Assembly Tips and Tricks video
