Quirky Crafts. The card is known as a sliding or pull up card...I had to follow instructions on You Tube to work out how to do it, but once I made one I realised that it is really relatively simple! We are sponsored this week by Stitchy Bear Digital stamps who kindly gave the design team some stamps to work with. I decided to go for an oldy worldy fantasy feel with this card so printed the stamps onto parchment paper, then used distress inks for the edge and coloured in pencils and gold pen for a faded vintage feel. I finished the edge off with gold embossed swirls.
Pixie Cottage's 'one for the boys', The Crazy challenge 'cards for men', Stamp something 'digital' and Delicious Doodles 'Fantasy' challenges.
Less is More challenge...however, White on White was a real challenge for me! In the end I dusted off my cuttlebug dies and embossing folders to make this! The little butterflies were made using a punch I was given for Christmas and never used. Although the temptation was to try and add a lot of detail to this card I tried to stay with the Clean and simple style. I am also entering this for the Flutterby Wednesday open challenge this week.
Nuts about Sketches. This also fits with the All sorts 'use at least 3 different stamps', SCSC 'dust off your stash' (I have had the papers used on this layout for at least 4 years!), and Speedy the cat's friends 'no embellishments' (I only used the papers, pens, stamps and photos). That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
