To My Main Squeeze!

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Peggy our challenge hostess for February continues to issue the challenges.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I am sure we will be seeing a lot of pinks and reds. The challenge today is to make a monochromatic card using pinks and reds.

A few weeks ago I need to make a few Heart Pivot Card samples for a demo I was doing at my local store. This is one I made so that it would work for this challenge and my demo :)

This time round I adhered a piece of designer paper onto a piece of card 12 inches long and 6 inches high. I score the card at 4 inches and 8 inches and then die cut the  Heart Pivot Card die designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs on the 8 inch score line to create a Z Fold Card.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

This is the front of the card when the card is folded. This is another of Art Impressions Hugs stamp sets that uses the action wobbles to make the head and arms wobble ... check out the video above.

And finally a close up of the Heart Pivot portion of my card ... oops looks like I failed monochromatic as I notice I added gold keys ... sorry!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
