Humpty Dumpty

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As the challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Being the third Saturday of the month it is time for our Sketch Challenge. I hope you have fun playing with this layout.

A few months ago I purchased this Humpty Dumpty die .... I am a bit of a sucker when it comes to anything Humpty Dumpty related for some reason. So I decided to use this for my card today. The sentiment is from an old Humpty Dumpty stamp set I have. I masked the other lines of the sentiment so I only stamped out the first line of the nursery rhyme.

I paper pieced all the pieces of the die back into the die cut so I had solid colors rather than open colors, it took a while but I prefer that look for this die.

As you can see I created a Pop Up Card using the Lots of Pops die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. As Humpty has had his fall, I cut apart his head from the body.

I used the spinner die from the Rectangle Pull Card die set to attach Humpty's head to the wall, so that that was also popped up. You can see the spinner in the photo above.

I have also added clouds to the back panel which are from the Rainbow Sky die set designed by Joset Designs for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

One last photo of my card, which is a close up so you can see the sentiment, on the bottom part of the card. I used the labels from the Katie Label Pivot Card die set to layer my sentiment.

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.
