I dont know about you but when it starts cooling down my mind definitely starts turning towards all the little projects I'd like to get done before the holidays. I am one of those people that starts thinking months before an event about a card I need to make and I am such a procrastinator that I will still wait til the last minute and then rush around trying to get things done. I am also one of those people who cannot make a decision on what paper to use, what shape to cut, what embellishments I want to use etc...so I spend hours and hours laying each choice down so I can make up my mind.
I did manage to complete a Peek-a-boo Tilda card for my son's girlfriend who had a birthday on September 18th. Jordan couldn't come home for a break from the Air Force until this past weekend so I even had extra time to finish her card but still had to run around.
I decided to make a slider card that had Tilda on the front and then Tilda popping up from behind the front embellishment. To get Tilda and the sentiment to pop-up you had to pull up on the ribbon, You kind of expect the sentiment but the front pop-up which is Longing Tilda is an unexpected surprise. The final pop-up was a water-colored sentiment from Stampin' Up! wishing her Happy Birthday.
This is the first card I'd made since I signed up to sell Stampin' Up! so I'm acclimating to their products and I'm really happy with everything I have used. The stamps are cut so well, nice and deep so I get a great impression without fighting for it and I love the inks and papers.
For Katie's card I used Stampin' Up! cardstock, ink and Stampin' Write markers, Copic markers, Recollections mulberry roses, Martha Stewart border punches, Stickles glue on roses and leaves, Stampin' Up! classic ink to ink edges of cardstock, DCWV cardstock, and ribbon and lace from my stash. I also used my Cricut to cut the cardstock and slot for the slider. I had a great time putting it all together but figuring out the pop-up peek-a-boo part was time-consuming. I hope you like it and will leave constructive criticism to help me along. Thanks!
Thanks for stopping by Party On the Paper! Hope you'll come back again soon!
