Carol's Love What You Do Share What You Love Impossible Card

 Carol S. did the second Make & Take at our May Stamp Share. Have you seen or heard of the "impossible card"? That's what this is. It's actually really easy to make once you have the cutting and scoring done. It's just a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock with one cut going from the top to the middle and two cuts going from the bottom to the middle. Then you take one of the small flaps on the bottom and rotate it to the top so basically half the card is twisted and that middle piece pops up. Kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of videos of people showing how to make it.




Also Stampin' Blends Markers

Colors: Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Whisper White

Chase's A Little Wild Little Loves Elephant Birthday Card For Sarah

Chase's girlfriend Sarah had a birthday recently and he asked me to make her a card. She loves elephants, so I borrowed A Little Wild and the matching framelits from my upline Betty. Then I had Chase look on Pinterest to find a card he liked. He found one from Mary F but he wanted different colors. So I started sending him pictures as I made it, giving him choices. Here's the final card and a coordinating envelope, followed by pictures of the process. 


Sarah's favorite colors are purple and blue, so he picked out Perfect Plum and Tempting Turquoise. I did samples both way so he could decide which he liked better: 


He picked Plum for the card base and Turquoise for the frame:


He decided he wanted the "wild about you" greeting on the front. When I stamped it I got a stray mark of ink, so I covered it up with Enamel Shapes:


Then I found some "Happy Birthday" stamps that fit under the elephant for the inside:


Here's the finished inside:


And the back:


It was fun making this with his help! And Sarah loved the card!
