Wishing You a ....

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Tammy Hershberger our challenge hostess for the month finishes off her month with one last challenge. 

"Use Your Words."  Please make the sentiment the focal point of your card.  Whether you choose to use a large sentiment, or maybe die-cut some words... whatever you decide, the words must be the focal point of your card. 

This challenge was definitely a challenge, not so much as I had to use words as a focal point that is pretty easy. But I normally challenge myself to incorporate some form of fancy fold when I do the "crazy" challenges, so the challenge was how to do that and keep the focal point the words.

As you can see in the end I decided to go with an accordion card using the Pop It Ups Gift Card Accordion designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

For the words I decided to use the A Way with Words "Wishing you a" and "Happy Birthday" die sets. I die cut the sentiments using white cardstock that had Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front. After removing the protective backing from the adhesive I covered the adhesive with Copper Rose Silk Microfine Glitter before attaching it to the card.

Here is a close up of the last two pages of my accordion card.

I felt that my card needed something else once I had added the sentiments, so I added some flowers using the new ModaScrap Happy Flowers die set.

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.
