Friday, April 23 - ssnotime136 - JOY FOLD CARD -- This fold for a card is just plain old FUN to do -- and super easy peasy lemon squeezy, as they say!!! It's kind of a little card on top of a larger card, backwards - LOL!!! Check out all the DT girls creations OR you can follow this tutorial written by Beate at SCS. We're sure to see a lot of fun results with this one!!!
For my card, I followed Beate's instructions, including measurements, I just flipped it :) I stamped my little Birthday Princess Pure Innocence on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored her with Copic markers, shaded with a Prismacolor pencil, and paper pieced her dress. You can't really tell, but I added some Liquid Applique to the frosting on her little cake. Then I cut it out with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and sponged around with Creamy Caramel ink and a little Vintage Touch on the edges. I stamped the crown a second time, cut it out, ran it through my little Xyron X sticker maker and sprinkled it with pink Glitzy Glitter. Then I tied a moire ribbon around in a bow and added the sentiment, which is also the "catch" to keep the card closed.
Here's a side view to show all the layers and dimension.
And the inside. It was really hard to get this view--it was too tall to stand up in my light box but I think you can get the idea.
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime136 if you upload to a public forum.
