SC 013/11…

Crikey, can you believe it!!!!!  This is week 13 of our challenge – time does fly when you’re having fun.

This week, the challenge was brought to you by our own Gwen & boy, has she made it very easy for us  – NO 2nd part of the challenge!!!!!  Yep, you read right – NO 2nd part of the challenge!!!!  In other words, you have a free hand on what you create as long as you stick basically to the sketch!!!!!!
Now, my mind went into overdrive & had so many ideas, but this is the one I ended up going with, as when I first saw the sketch, a kid’s birthday card popped into my head.  This card can be used for boy/girl!!!!
To check out my 2nd card, pop back in later on in the week!

Base Card – Poppy Parade – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored & folded in half landscape
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 4″ x 5 3/4″ or 10cm x 14.5cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 3 7/8″ x 5 5/8″ or 9.5cm x 14cm
Layer 3 – Poppy Parade – 4″ x 2 3/8″ or 10cm x 6cm
Layer 4 – DSP – 3 7/8″ x 2 1/4″ or 9.5cm x 5.5cm

I layered my DSP onto Whisper White Cardstock & then onto the Base Card – Poppy Parade, using Snail Adhesive.  I layered the smaller piece of DSP onto the piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock, then onto the middle of the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

I punched a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with my Scallop Circle Punch & layered a piece of Wild Wasabi Cardstock onto it.  This piece had been punched with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch.  I punched a So Saffron circle from my 1 1/4″ Circle Punch & adhered to the top of Wild Wasabi circle.


With Envelope…


With my Early Expresso Ink, I stamped the bottom of the cupcake, while the top was stamped using So Saffron Ink.  I punched both pieces with my Cupcake Builder Punch, stamped over the So Saffron top with Early Expresso Ink – this put the “chips” onto the “icing” & adhered this piece to the top of the cupcake bottom with Snail Adhesive.  I drew dots around the circle with my SU Marker – Early Expresso & adhered the whole cupcake to the So Saffron Circle with Su Dimensionals.

I stamped the greeting in Early Expresso Ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, cut around it ensuring I allowed enough card at both ends of the greeting, one end to slide under the Scalloped Circle, while the other end, I snipped a “V” into it.  I then used my scissors to shape the pennant & adhered the left hand end to the card with Snail Adhesive.

For something a little different, I decided to have another cupcake for the inside, but I wanted it to pop up when opened.  For this, I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock 4″ x 5 3/4″ or 10cm x 14.5cm, measured the middle along the long side & marked with a pencil.  To get the bit to stand, I measured 1/8″ or 3mm either side of the halfway mark.  I then drew a line on both sides about 1 1/8″ or 2.5cm down, scored across the bottom to where both sides meet & cut along the lines to the score mark.


Inside – Pop Up Cupcake…


I again stamped my images using Early Expresso & So Saffron Inks onto Whisper White Cardstock, punched using my Cupcake Builder Punch & adhered to the piece with Snail Adhesive.  I punched the cherry from DSP with the same punch.  I inked my wording with my SU Marker – Poppy Parade & stamped in the middle. 

For the bottom half, I cut a strip of DSP, adhered to a piece of Early Expresso Cardstock, then to the Whisper White Cardstock, allowing a small edge of the White to show at the bottom.

All in all a very simple card but with a bit of a WOW, I think!!!!!  I would relly like to know what you think?
