It’s time again for that crazy challenge, Crazy 4 Challenges! Today, Frances is challenging us to make a fun fold card. You can get all the details at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.
OK, I knew this was coming at some point, LOL! Frances LOVES fancy folded cards and wants us to as well :) I’ve truly been meaning to make one of these cards but just never got around to it. Now I have and I have to admit it was sorta fun ;-)
I’m using MFT’s soon to be released set, Umbrella Die-namics and Stamp Set. Super cute sentiments and an adorable umbrella die! I decided to make my umbrella one of those vinyl rainbow types, so first of all, I cut out the umbrella base with some acetate card stock.
Then I cut out the individual rib sections in rainbow colors and adhered them on. Good thing about the acetate is you can scoot the rib pieces around a little bit for accurate placement.
Here’s the finished umbrella, up close. How sweet is that?????
I also thought it would be cute to create a little scene—you know I like to do that :) So, blue patterned paper background, green grass using Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass, some clouds using Die-namics Flat-Bottom Clouds, and a Die-namics Sunshine sun. I tied some twine around on top of the grass strip, added a button and a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon fishtail for the sentiment.
And here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set.
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card.
And that's all for me for me! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
