Hey All! I hope this Monday morning post finds you well and happy. It's been two weeks since the last challenge, so it's time for a new one! So on with the post!
This week's House Mouse Monday Challenge is challenge #63. We have been challenged to do a multi-fold card. I decided to really take this challenge to heart and find a multi-fold card that I have never done before. I chose a "Spring Card". No, not the season, but a card that actually springs up. This was a lot of fun to make, and you can find the tutorial and a video HERE. Here is my card:
Here is a side view:
I love this card! I'm so glad I forced myself to try a new type of card. That's what challenges are for huh? The folding of this card is so easy, I couldn't believe how easy. It would have been a quick card if not for all of the intricate cutting I had to do on the two little mice to make them look 3-D. But I think the results were worth the cramping hand! LOL Here is a close up:
I colored the image with colored pencils and oms. The sentiment was created on my computer in Word with Word Art. I cut it out with my Nesties and then punched out a sparkly dot and glued to the middle. I used an EK Success punch for the photo corners. Main image is cut out with Nesties and I then secured it to red card stock and cut around it freehand to give it a defining matting. There was nothing on the back of the card stock for the main card base that said who it was by.
So, there you go! Why not give this challenge a try? At least go take a look at my talented colleagues take on the challenge at House Mouse Monday Challenge Blog.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look. I so appreciate your time!
