Hello crafty friends,
So glad you dropped by today. Boy this has been a last crazy week and a half. I have been struggling with lots of computer issues. I am glad to say that I have at least regained use of my blog writing software and that I can now concentrate on some other issues and then get past those too Today I wanted to share a card I made for the Pazzles DT. The challenge on the Pazzles craft room this month is to create a Bendi Fold card. Here’s my take on this super fun card.
Here is a look at my finished card. It was created with papers from the DCWV Baby Boy Stack and the DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack as well as some cardstock. I started by using the Pazzles small Bendi Fold Card Base. I took one of the “arms” and substituted it for the dog and fence file. I also made the top of the other “arm” layer wavy.
Here is a closer look at the pretty little sun. I was speaking with my Sister in law a while back and they recently moved out of state and she said to me…send some sunshine our way….so that is why I went with this theme. So “T” this is for you The sun is made from patterned papers in the DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack. I just made the eyes and the now in the file bigger and drew my mouth on with a fine tip pen.
I then used the tree file from the craft room and cut it out of some dcwv paper in the baby boy stack. I added a few tiny butterflies from my MS punch that was quickly and easily accessible. I cut out some clouds from the rainbow and clouds craft room file and inked the edges with some crystal blue ink from the Whimsy Ink Pad Set.
Here is a closer look at the fence. I created it by using the dog and fence craft room file instead of the base cut that came in the small base bendi file.
I wanted to use some of that popular “wood” looking patterned paper, but I didn’t have any that suited the cut well so I used some diaper paper from the DCWV baby boy stack….YEP that’s right….DIAPER PAPER. That is what gave it that great “wood” painted with lines kind of look.
Here’s a shot showing you the cuts from the diaper paper. Of course I will save the rest for another project, but I hope this will inspire you to look at your paper differently.
Here is a view of the card opened. There was a great open spot that I was able to put my sentiment on. I could have really gone wild decorating this card. But I purposely wanted to keep it really clean and simple.
Here is a closer look at my sentiment. One of the wonderful things about the Pazzles Inspiration software is that it allows you to print right from the program. This is a great design tool-feature in that you know exactly what size to make your sentiments, etc.
