Whew! I got a little distracted last week from my blog because I was spending my free time making decorations for my son's train party. He turned 4 years old yesterday-amazing! We had a fun little party for him in our garage; we were going to have it at Travel Town (a local train park) but it was raining yesterday so we switched to plan B. My Cricut was chirping every day last week to turn our garage into a more festive environment for his party. I'll be sure to post pictures when I'm finished posting the cards.
So this card is a swing card, or flip flop card. When you pull on the two sides of the card, the center flips over to reveal your message. This is what it looks like:
For the center, I layered pink on pink, inked all the edges in white, and hand-stitched a border on the top layer. The mushroom is from Paisley. I used almost all DCWV paper and embellished with stickles. I used Martha Stewart's Scallop Dot punch as a border and made my own photo corners.I placed the sentiment in the corner so it would be visible whether the card was "flipped" or "flopped." I used Paisley for the circle and the scalloped circle with a difference of 1/4" (real dial size turned ON). I cut "fun" out from Sesame Street font at 1/2" and used stickles on it. The shapes are outlined with a very fine Micron pen.
Thanks for looking!
