It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week I finish up my month as challenge hostess with one last challenge.
Apparently today is Square Dance Day, so to celebrate let’s get those square cards, dies etc out! Bonus points if you incorporated Dancing somehow on your card as well.
I have had this cute Magnolia Tilda & Edwin Dancing stamp for a few years and hadn’t gotten around to using it, so of course I had to use it for my card today. I computer generate the sentiment on the front, so it would work with the theme.
I thought it would be fun to cut the dancing couple apart and have them appear on the inside of my pop up card, after all often when you dance you separate for a few steps … especially in square dancing! I did have to doctor Tilda’s leg and Edwin’s arm as these were joined in the original image.
I have used the Lorna Labels Pop Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs to create the pop up portion of my card. The “Happy Birthday” words are from the Happy Birthday Pop Up Card set.
Here is a side on view of my card, so you can see the pop up elements better.
