Happy Saturday! That means it's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge! Today, Mercy is challenging us to use pleats on our cards. What an awesome challenge! I'd been meaning to do that but never remembered it until it was too late! I'm here to tell you I've finally got pleats! And I love the look, so thanks, Mercy, for pushing me!
I'm using a brand-spankin' new MFT release called Who's That Geek Guy? Don't you love it!? I'll bet you know someone that this would be perfect for, right? It's gonna make a great birthday card for a very geek-y friend of mine.
I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Then I paper pieced his shirt and the chair and colored the rest with Copic markers. My base card is a Fossil Notecard from MFT and I used more Fossil card stock, as well. I love this card stock--think Kraft. It's now a staple of my paper supply. My layout is pretty obvious, but I'll point out that I used a stamp in the set that's a set of binary numbers to stamp the Fossil layer of my sentiment piece--and that of the inside--with Versamark. Then I over stamped with the sentiment. Cute, huh? For my pleats, I simply stapled some pleats made from twill and topped them with a couple of buttons. I really like this card and it will be hard to part with it--but I will ;-)
Here's the inside:
And my geek friend *can* fix it, too.
This card also works for F4A15 on SCS.
NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy girls...er, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-) Our sponsor this week is Stamp N Plus Scrap N. Get all the deets at the C4C blog.
