I got the idea for my card from the Winter 2013 Cardmaker Magazine which features pop up cards. I really like the way this card has something hanging down freely on the inside, so I went with it.
The card base is made with Pretty in Pink CS with some layers of white and pink CS. On the top layer I stamped the 1st Anniversary sentiment in Memento Black ink, masked that portion off before stamping the Interlocking Hearts Background in Pretty in Pink ink. I scored the border of the sentiment to give it a bit more definition. I got the idea for this from Split Coast Stampers' Ways to Use challenge this past Thursday. To complete the front I added a pink bow.
The inside was a bit more complicated, at least for me it was. Thankfully Cardmaker Magazine had detailed instructions. I'd have been lost without them!!
First I cut two white panels and embossed them with an older CB embossing folder that has flowers and hearts. The Happy Anniversary sentiment was stamped in Memento Black ink on pink CS, die cut with a Nestie label and attached to the inside. There are two small clear rhinestone hearts on the sentiment label. The top border was created using a punch. The small hanging hearts were cut with the smallest Nesties scallop heart die. The words "love," "hugs," and "kisses" were stamped on the hearts. Two hearts were glued together with a piece of white bakers twine in between. The hearts are attached to the fold out border with tape. Here's a close up of the hearts.
My second card is for this week's Merry Monday Card Club Challenge. You can details of this challenge here. Lesley has a great challenge each week!
I really like this color combo and went with a CAS style card. I started with the white card base, added a layer of red CS, then a layer of aqua blue that was stamped with the tiny Merry Christmas sentiment (DRS Designs 364B)before embossing with a CB snowflake folder. The tiny snowmen (DRS Designs 256B) were stamped on white CS with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics, die cut and layered on red scallop circles. To complete the look, I used my Nesties snowflake dies to create the snowflake. A white button and some baker's twine finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Until next time,
