Happy November, and welcome to the weekend. With the weekend comes a new Crazy4Challenges challenge and I am excited to say that I am the host for November. One of the benefits of being the host is that I get to choose the challenges : ) According to the days of the year calendar November 3rd is CANDY Day, what fun, so this weeks challenge is to have a candy themed card……. and this is what I came up with.
Quick side note-Wordpress has changed some of their editing and formatting, and I’m still trying to figure it out, I can’t edit my links so there may not be as many of them. Also apologies over the overall look, there are spaces where there shouldn’t be and alignment is way off , not lovin the update, I had A LOT of difficulties tonight. Anyway, on with the show ….
This card was as fun to make as it was frustrating, if you read through you will see how even if you make mistakes along the way (and I made a few with this one) it is still possible to have a really great card in the end, just fix your mistake and move on to the next step. This card wouldn’t have been possible without this amazing video tutorial https://youtu.be/lvbe8unPQZE from Laura Dovalo https://www.youtube.com/user/ladovalo/videos. I recommend watching her video if you plan on making this card as it is a little tricky, but great interactive card at the end.
So a few weeks ago I posted a daisies easel card, in that post I mention that I made a card that I couldn’t post because my friend hadn’t received it yet and I didn’t want to give away the surprise but I posted a different card that was inspired by the original card that a different friend of mine wanted for a friend of hers. Well this is the original card, lol that was not confusing at all 🙄
So this card came about because I made a different card….. it’s funny how one thing leads to another. I made a fairly similar card a couple weeks back for a friend that I thought might need a little pick me up, and I showed it to another friend. This friend decided that she also has a friend that might need a little pick me up and asked if I could make her one as well. Well, I’m pretty sure my first friend hasn’t gotten hers yet so I don’t want to post her card online yet and I don’t think my friend’s friend follows my blog sooooo I decided to post hers first. LOL, are you able to follow 🙂 anyway here goes?
Sooooo I have been not so patiently waiting to post this card as I was waiting for my friend to receive it in the mail, It would probably help if I mailed it in time 🙄 but I got the go ahead so here goes…….
This is my first attempt at a Flower Pot Pop up Card and I think it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself, I think the next time I will probably try to centre it a little better, I was concerned If I had it too high in the card the flowers were going to come out of the top of the card, it turned out that I had a little more room than I thought 🙂
