Hello everyone, it is the 4th week in September so we are looking at either a Stash or Technique Challenge and Myra has chosen for it to be a technique challenge. And the technique that we all have to play along with is …
I must admit that I don’t do a lot of different fold cards. I use to do them quite a bit but I think that because I have been donating a lot of my cards I now do mostly flat. But this is the card that I made for this challenge.
Aren’t these mice adorable! These guys have been hanging out in my stash for quite a while because I just couldn’t find the right design for them. You see this image was part of a set to be used for making 3D cards. I don’t make these cards usually and they came as part of a kit so they have been sitting in my stash and I thought that I would never use them. But I dug through my favourite sketches and found one that first could be used for an easel card and 2nd for these cute critters. And this is the sketch that I used
Once I found the sketch and it had an oval in the design I used the main image from the 3D set and cut the oval out with a die but this cut off the parts of the mice on either side. So to make these guys full again I used one of the layering pieces and cut these out and put them over the oval. Before I cut them out I put some double-sided tape from a large roll on the back so that when I cut them out I could make sure I could fully secure them. The sentiment on the inside was part of the kit as was the paper that I have used.
Thanks for dropping on by and looking at my Design Teamwork for the Technique challenge over at 52CCT. I hope that you will come on over and play along with us. Before you go from my blog I want to leave you with this final thought
This is just a heads up – I will be blogging about my other life – (my walk between being well and not being able to do much at all) – on this blog. I have decided not to hide this side of me anymore. It is a part of me and it’s a part of my story.
Until next time, find your happy and do it,
❤ Tracy B
