I've been playing in the Dare to Get Dirty challenges on Splitcoast (only for Fan Club members) and this is one I finished tonight -->
I've been really busy lately with some family stuff, so I've been combining challenges to try and get them all done. I got 2 different challenges done with this card - make a flap card and use the colors pink and black with some faux stitching.
I just adore this sentiment stamp - the saying is so sweet and I love the fonts they used. Can you believe it's from a Studio G dollar set?? It also has some flower images with it, one of which I used to stamp the inside. Oh, and if you think the word happy looks a little weird, it's because I traced over it with a glitter pen and couldn't quite photograph it right. It looks really pretty in person!
I deviated slightly from the tutorial for the flap card because I didn't want to use a magnetic closure. Instead, the flap tucks behind the flower and the whole ribbon/button/flower piece can be moved up and down to either secure the flap or release it. You can see how it looks open in this picture.
To finish it off, I cut a piece of plain white cardstock which I stamped with one of the matching little flowers from the same stamp set. This card was really fun to make so I'm sure I'll make more in the future! Thanks to Rose Ann Reynolds for the tutorial!!
