Week #26 Blogger's Challenge - Moveable cards


One of my favorite things to do is make moveable cards. I've always been intrigued on getting a blank piece of cardstock to be interactive. Shaker cards were one of the first cards I saw when I started stamping! I looked at the demo's sample most of the night, I think, trying to figure out how she made it! Soon after I started stamping, I attempted to make one...I'll try to find that original card and show you...it was pretty funny! Thank heavens I've perfected the art of making shaker cards now (after doing a shaker card swap and having to make 15 of them!)

So...here is this week's Blogger's Challenge card. I used the snowman from Wishing You Cheer as the focal piece and stamped him on Very Vanilla. I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock the same size as the Vanilla and sandwiched the beads between the two pieces with foam tape and a clear window sheet. I used the Giga Scallop Oval punch for the front.

A tip on getting words the correct way on a Round Tab Punch...maybe you figured it out already. I punch the Tab and then stamp the words "Merry & Bright" on it. That way the placement is correct. I added a little red Rhinestone brad under the words for some bling.

This was a fun challenge! Hope you check out the rest of the Blogger's who participate each week.
