Yes, I had a busy day. Worked until noon, then went to lunch with a friend, and back to her house for some card-making and fun. The previous post is the first card, and this is the second card that I made for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/ . The theme for this challenge was In The Garden, and I chose this darling little sleeping hedgehog, cuz' I just adore him. I bought this paper because it made me smile - it's a "happy" paper, don't you think? Anyways, I just had to use it today!! It's by We R Memory Keepers.
It also fits the sketch challenge for the Unscripted Sketches #57 challenge - http://unscriptedsketches.com/ , and, Raise The Bar Challenge # 21 - http://raisethebarchallenge.blogspot.com/ , which is Celebrate Summer!
Here's my card:
It's called a Joy Fold Card, and it's ssooooo fun to make. I'll post a couple of pics so you can see the clever opening. The top panel opens UP, the the bottom panel opens DOWN. Then there's some cute stuff going on INSIDE the card, too. The little round flower embelly on the front is raised on foam, so that the front panel just tucks under it to keep it closed. Clever, huh. I learned this card over on Splitcoaststampers, and will be posting another, along with full directions, on Tuesday for my Technique Tuesday blog. Stop back soon!
Here are a couple of side/inside views:
