So today I have a belated Valentine card. A coworker asked me if I could make him a card to give to his Star Wars lovin girlfriend knowing that not only was I not able to have it made by Valentine’s Day, it would probably be at least a week late, but he wanted it anyway so I thought that I would try to make it as special as I could. I’d be lying if I said this card didn’t have a few challenges it was a little trickier than I thought It would be but I just kept on moving forward and before I knew it, it was done. I also have to give credit to Lois Gray Bak as after seeing her “Death Star” gave me to idea to make this “Death Star”
This card had 2 separate pop up mechanisms and it LIGHTS UP 🤯
To see this card and all it’s POP UP and LIGHT up glory please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram, please feel to join my Facebook group if you would like to share your own crafty creations.
Here we go, rolling into week 2 of Hosting the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. I love texture, sometimes it’s nice to have a card that you just want to touch, and sometimes it just adds that extra little touch, so this weeks challenge is to add texture to your card.
to see all the other textured cards made by the very talented design team just hop on over here C4C blog (posts Saturday Nov 9)
I’ve got a fun Birthday card today, and it is the first time that I used my Triple Flip die sest. This card is for someone who doesn’t like a lot of fuss for his Birthday so I made the front flaps look like a traditional Birthday card with cake, a gift, and balloons, but when the flaps are flipped they reveal the way he would rather take in the day which would be hanging out with his dog, enjoying a cold beer, watching Ghost Hunters lol
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.
Love this little mouse, and in this card, the little stinker is running away with a Christmas light. I thought that it would be fun to make an interactive card and have Jolly the mouse actually be able to scurry across the card.
So this card was so much fun to make but turned into quite the challenge when I decided to make 50 of them, there were a few challenges along the way but I did get them all done and in the mail 🙂
