Waaayyyyy back last fall I was contacted by the folks at CardMaker because of something they had seen on my blog. I was told that they were publishing an interactive card book, and they asked me if I would make some sample for it!! Wahooo!! How totally COOL!! (The only sad thing is that I made FOUR cards for them, and it looks as though only THIS one made it into the book!) They had originally asked me about the hinged card, since they had seen the tutorial I had done on my blog/youtube ... hopefully it will get used somewhere else because it was MAHvelous!!
I had never actually made a waterfall card before making this one ... they just asked if I knew how to do one (which I did), so then they asked me to make them one. As FAB-OOO as this card is, though, I personally think it was the weakest of the four I sent them ... go figure!! And my BFF JanTink is ALSO featured in the book ... THREE times!! She also submitted four projects for the book, and three of 'em got used (and she is DELIGHTING in rubbing it in ... okay, not really, but she is DELIGHTED to have THREE - while I only have ONE!!).
They are actually pretty fun to make, but I have to admit that it seems kinda weird making a card that you can't actually WRITE in (which is why I slapped onto the front of an actual A2-sized card ... at least you can write in the inside of THAT!)
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Polka Dot bg
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard
Accessories: Punches – Butterfly, Large Oval, Small Oval, Horizontal Slot, handheld 1/16” circle punch, Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon, Vintage Brads, pop-up glue dots
Here is a picture of the cover of the book (even though my card isn't on it, it's pretty cool!!)
Now, as for the wedding box template ... I am having issues creating a file that blogger will let me post. Since I can only put up jpgs (and NOT pdf's ... darn Blogger!), I want to make sure it is in "real size" for ya so that it will be useful ... stay tuned, 'cause it WILL be up by this weekend!!
