New House, New Card, New Challenge!

Friday, 30 September 2011

I’m scheduling this card way in advance as I’m off on my holidays at the moment. I am actually due home, but just not soon enough to do this as it is for the new challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog.
We’re up to R now and the challenge this fortnight is...

R for Recipe!

The recipe in question is 1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 flowers.  Simples!

My sister has recently moved house, so I made this card for her.  I saw a tutorial for a cute pop-up card a while back, so I thought I’d give it a go.

Here it is...


And a side view


The fabby image was a freebie from the even more fabby spyder, you can purchase her digi’s here.  I coloured it with my copics.  The papers I used are from the Jillibean Soup “Blossom Soup” pad.


I used some cute little toadstools that I got ages ago in a garden centre!  I could never find the right thing to use them on as they are quite bulky, but this card was perfect for them along with 3 cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts.


The card folds up really easily


And fits into the box which I made for it – I used a scallop edge punch on the lid and base of the box


And I tied a ribbon around it to keep it closed


And that’s it!

So why don’t you pop over the the Alphabet Challenge Blog to see the other DT’s fabby cards and then make one for me to see!

Thanks for looking!

The colour is so fresh and your image is beautifully coloured. Paper with fabric is totally new idea. I used same theme at school days card challenges.

Sheena these are fabulous, I love the colours! and I hope you don't mind if I 'borrow' them (totally missed them!) I'll add them in next months Spyder has spyded, so if you want to choose two digi's from the store, email me, OR wait a while and hopefully I'll have more in there...
