WWC213 – Karen’s Masculine “Anything Goes” Challenge

Hello

Welcome to the new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday. This week is Karen’s Masculine “Anything Goes” Challenge.

Image may contain: one or more people and textI had been reading a recent post over at Art Impressions and liked the idea of a ‘flip’ card. I didn’t have the die, but thought I’d give it a go on my own.

After measuring the card front to ensure it would fit all the elements, I cut a ‘u’ shape to give me the flip panel. The photo below shows the flip panel.

AI’s Dog Stackers stamp was copic coloured, and perfect for my take on the ‘flip’ card.  I love this fun stamp. You can’t help but smile at all those cute dogs! 

I then made 3 panels layered won black. One for the front, and one for each side of the flip panel. I made them to fit the stamps / dies, I was using.

I die cut ‘Happy  Birthday’ from local company (Catchy Crafts), another favourite being vertical which allows for lots of different placements and adding something special. It was attached to  the extended section of the front flap.

The sentiment for the back of the ‘flip’ was W Plus 9 – Fierce and Fabulous set, as well as 2 thin red strips.

Inside the card, I  added black card to give extra strength as the card is getting heavier and the folds at the sides are a little narrow. I also stamped and coloured the dog from the bottom of the stack and added a computer generated extra sentiment.

I was so happy with the way this card turned out and look forward to trying the ‘flip’ idea again.  I hope you liked it too.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog for lots of inspiration!  Good luck!

Have a great week

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. Now that’s one very creative and fun card. The design is fabulous and love how you did the ‘flip’. The vertical stamping and the vertical sentiment is so perfect for the design of the card. Great colouring too x.
