Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce a new challenge hostess which is Rebecca Ednie.
Rebecca tells us ... It might not be quite warm enough for swimming but you can still enjoy the beach! Let’s make cards with sand on them. You can use real sand, sand paper, stamps or images.
I created a Wiper card using Mama Elephant Stamps Wiper Surprise Card die set. You can see a quick video to see my card in action above.
To decorate my card I decided to use a couple of the new Lawn Fawn stamps and dies that I purchased last month. I have used Lawn Fawn On The Beach Stamp set and the Palm Tree Border die set.
When you pull the sides of the card it reveals a sun popping up behind the palm trees. As I put sunglasses on the bear and fox, I decided to use the sun wearing sunglasses, that I have had in my stash for years.
I added a sentiment to the top left hand corner of the card. This is an older stamp from MFT which is long retired.
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.
