Tried my hand at a Flap Card - See what you think.


Okay, so I didn’t get to post on Sunday. I didn’t even get to the craft room on Sunday. I was all congested and my sinuses were a mess from walking store to store, in the wind on Saturday. Two of the ladies did not get to go shopping, but my friend, Barb, and I went. We are shopaholics anyway. We shopped until we literally dropped. Barb is so funny, but you will not believe what she did. We are on our way to Lexington, about an hour out of Ashland, and she goes to hunting for her billfold. She cannot find it, so she calls her husband. Sure enough, she left it laying on the kitchen table. Her husband, John, who is one of the sweetest men I have ever known or even heard about, drives one hour to meet us to bring her billfold to her. Of course, we went to the next exit, where there was a Big Lots, and shopped until he got there. We could not miss out on any shopping. Heaven Forbid! We may have hit some other stores if any others had been open. It was just too early for the others. The rest of the trip was a hit and we had a wonderful time. Bought ourselves lots of goodies, and found some wonderful deals.

I worked a little while in my craft room today, and decided to try the flap card from the Monday SCS Challenge. I had to enlarge it a bit, because the stamp image is large and took up most of the card the other way. I did it on a piece of 12" paper and made it 5" wide. Then, I extended the flap by adding a piece of purple cardstock along a strip of DCWV glitter paper. DCWV brown texture cardstock, vanilla cardstock and Bazzill orange bling are layered behind my image. The stamped image is another Tingle Hearts - Birthday Girl. I colored her with colored pencils and embossed over it with clear embossing powder. I punched a little design on the brown texture paper, and then stamped Happy Birthday Wishes on the right lower corner. The candles are colored dark purple, which is kind of hard to tell, and I used stickles as the flame from the candles. There is a little brad on the point of her birthday hat. Again, I love these stamps, and enjoy coloring them. This was a fun card to make. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll come back for another visit soon. Have a great day!

Toota-loo,
