Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  As challenge hostess this month I continue to issue the challenges.

Tomorrow 11th November is Origami Day, let's include something origami related on our cards. It could be a folded shirt, dress, crane, a folded box whatever you like.

As you can see I decided to create an origami shirt which started from a piece of 4 inch x 6 inch designer paper. 

Yesterday I posted a slider card I made for my mother's 90th birthday which is happening later this week using the Circle Accordion Card die set. Today I thought I would play with the Oval Accordion Card die set to create a slider on the front of my card. When you move the card the shirt with move around the oval opening and twist and turn around.

On the inside of the card I created a pop up card using the Happy Birthday Pop Up die set which is designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

As you can see I also added another origami shirt at the base of my card. I used white button brads to simulate buttons of my shirt.

Here is another look at the inside of my card taken at a different angle so you can see the pop up part of the card a little easier.

Love your little shirts! I would have to pass on this challenge as I am NO GOOD at Origami. So I can really appreciate any that I see! Fun that the shirt spins on the front.
