I have spent a lot of time today working on my lessons for the week. Both classes require a lot of reading and writing, which is not my thing. I've never been crazy about any kind of writing. I'd much rather be creating and making pretty things. One of the questions for the discussion board this week is "To what extent is writing a natural talent and to what extent is it a skill developed through hard work?" I know what my answer is. :)
Well, on to the business at hand and my real passion - card making! The challenge for this fortnight over at International Art & Soul was to make an Interactive Card. I was kind of late getting mine done because of school, but I had seen this tutorial and I thought it would be fun. This is my second attempt. I messed up following the directions on the first one, but I like the way this one turned out.
This didn't take much to put it together, just pay attention to how you are to score it and do the folding.
- Stamps - Stampin Up Happiest Birthday Wishes; Age Awareness; Balloon Adventures
- Ink - Tangerine Tango, Baked Brown Sugar, Bermuda Bay
- Cardstock - Stampin Up Whisper White, Tangerine Tango
- Designer Paper - Stampin Up Tasty Treats
I hope you'll come and join in the fun. I'd love to see what you create. You could be the winner or picked as one of the Top 3 and receive one of these lovely badges for your blog.
WOW! That's a great fold, Maggie! Love your card!ReplyDelete
Your card is great and I love the colours you've used. Hazel xReplyDelete
Wow! These special fold cards are a lot of work. I guess I feel about them the same way you feel about writing. You did a great job on this. Super cute paper and I love the sentiment!ReplyDelete
Oh Maggie this is gorgeous - love the result.ReplyDelete
