Happy Saturday! Since it *is* Saturday, it’s time for Crazy 4 Challenges! Today Frances wants us to add a twist to our cards—in the form of a twisted card design.
My girl Frances LOVES all those fancy fold cards. Me? Not so much, LOL! I thought maybe there might be some others of you out there in the same boat and didn’t want you to NOT play because of it. So, I’m offering a way to “twist” without doing the twisted cards ;-) Be creative! Think outside the box! You could twist some ribbon, for example. My “twist” is Lime Twist patterned paper. I still have part of a pad and used it for my card. See??? Easy peasy!
I made this card for a good friend who is moving, not into my immediate neighborhood, but MUCH closer than she was before. To me, she’s in my neighborhood and I couldn’t be happier to have her closer. Using my Lime Twist paper and DC Homespun Birdhouse and Die-namics Homespun Birdhouse Die Only, I created a little scene. First, I cut out my Die-namics Branch With Leaves and adhered that. The leaves extend over the edges of the card, but I’ll be hand delivering this card so that won’t matter :) Then I created my birdhouse and “hung” it from the branch. I cut a bird and perched him up on the branch, then stamped the sentiment on a Die-namics Ticket Tab and slipped the edge of it up under the top pattern of paper.
For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the set and was done!
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
