So moving right along...I am really pleased to see so many entries in my "Anything Goes" challenge but rather surprised that I don't have as many in my gift card "Giveaway"...strange...don't you think since an entry in the challenge automatically qualifies you for the gift card. Oh well for those of you that did enter the giveaway and the challenge I wish you luck in both.
Now for my card. At first it appeared to be very complicated and then after looking at it more closely, I thought perhaps it wasn't as bad as it seemed so I thought give it a try. Well that didn't turn out to well...but I always seek ways to succeed and with this card I got lucky and found a lady that had a wonderful tutorial.
After reading the tutorial and viewing a template she had created, I noticed that something wasn't adding up, so I pondered and counted on my fingers and frowned and groaned until finally I found the problem...and it wasn't me! Turns out there was a typo in the instructions as far as numbers go and that is why it wasn't adding up. But with a little logic and re-reading at a much slower pace I was ready to give it another try. This is how it turned out.
Now for the inside which was at first very intimidating but turned out to be quite easy once you got the folds correctly.
As you can see I continued to used paper from the same paper pack which meant it would all coordinate properly.
I fuzzy cut the panels on the side and the words from one sheet of the paper pack. This was a really cool card to make.
This photo I took so you could see how it looks when looking down on it from above. You can better see the where the score lines and folds are with a top-view.
Well that's what I have to share for this week and it may be a while before I get to post again since I will be leaving to visit with my grans and I'm not real sure how much time I will have for crafting.
