Today I have the last card I've made in my stint as Guest Designer at Karber Digital for July. I've used another new-to-me type of card....it's a "joy fold card" and it was a lot of fun to put together but seriously difficult to get the effect into a photo!
Digital Tuesday had this great sketch...it fitted in really well with the joy fold.
The image is "Pet Denny" from Karber Digital, she's coloured up with Copics with Ice Stickles on the bag and dog collar and gloss on her sunnies.
Sweet Stampin' has F F F F Fashion as its theme, Denny's the epitome of fashion in my opinion, so she's in!
Some of the papers are from Echo Parks Walk in the Park collection, one of the pads I bought with a voucher I won...I'll be cracking out some of my other newbies very soon! and some is American Crafts City Park collection...which I won from Tracey; sounds like I win all the time, lol
I've used stripy ribbon from my stash - definitely bought that :-) to tie in with the stripy paper behind the image.
The mat is cut using my new Wonky Squares Nestabilities die and backed up with a mat from DCWV Endless Summer mat stack...it's nice and glittery. Totally Gorjuss has Die Cuts and Punches so I'm in. Everything is mounted on American Crafts hot pink cardstock, ...lots of layers here, which is just as well as Creative Craft Challenges has 3D it as its challenge theme.
I've put a few extra photos in to try and show (for those who don't already know, of course!) how this type of card "works"...I'm not sure I've managed it to be honest, you'll just have to check out the video tutorial.
I've added a lovely metal butterfly as a "stopper" for the front of the card to tuck under, so I'll be entering Flutterby Wednesday's Open challenge. Stamp Something wants us to Stamp Something Embellished, as well as my butterfly I've used a great metal embellishment inside the card...it's actually recycled from one of my son's 30th birthday cards from earlier this year and is probably going to go to my niece who is thirty in a few days (I've made this card for her, but I'm not entirely convinced it's "her"; time will tell - as in if I don't get time to make another this card will be PERFECT, lol)
Well, that's it for my probably-my-nieces-birthday-card. Until next time, Happy Crafting, Dee.
