Hope you have all had a great start to the New Year.
I had a nice long break over the last couple of months.... and when I got back home was itching to try something different and the current challenge offered just that.
Challenge #44 - Fancy Folds card + punches

If you've seen my work, I hardly ever leave a pattern paper as is. I have to alter it in some way, stamps, gesso, paints. So, this time I decided to stay away from any wet medium. It was very difficult, but an hour later this was born. Its a slider card, with place for two hidden messages. This is what it looks like closed.
Lots of measuring, scoring and lining up edges, couldn't have done it without Martha Stewart Tools Scoring Board. Pull the tab and the images slide up like so. The Welcome Baby Boy banner is glued only on the edges and the baby image on pop dots so that the tag can easily slide in and out.
View from the top. There is place for another short message on the top too. These papers are a combination of Kaisercraft Bundle of Joy and Pitter Patter Kaisercraft Paper Pad 6.5"X6.5" 40/Pkg. Not only do you get both pink and blue pattern paper in the same pad, there are also 4 sheets of die cuts making it very easy to embellish a project. My favourite though are the sheets with cute vintage baby images - have fussy cut the crane from it.
This slider has been mounted onto a pearl 6inchx4inch cardstock with lots of room for a personal message to the new parents.
I have few more projects to share but now I'm off to visit all of you dear readers who I haven't visited these last few weeks.
