Welcome To the Neighborhood–C4C #179


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!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C179.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
