Clowning Around .....

Just a quickie today to share a card that we made at my weekly class.  I've used the new set Under the Big Top.  This a really cute set which has some fabulous images for colouring, great for fun cards.

I've been trying to showcase some different folds at my Monday classes, this one is a little fiddly at first but once you've got the hang of it nice and straight forward.  I actually have to thank a very good friend for this one, have seen it before but she prompted me to use it - thanks Beth.

This is what the inside looks like

And with a bigger piece of card you can create a double ended card and use it 'landscape', I've added an extra panel in the middle too.

That's all for today, happy crafting xx

There are some fantastic new kids/boys sets in the new catalogue.  One of my faves is Dinoroar- I don't have this set (yet) but managed to have a play a couple of weeks ago. Thanks to Amanda :)  Anyhow I wanted to share a fun little card. Apologies that the picture isn't great!

I've used Pool Party for the card base, and Sahara Sand for the ground. A bit of sponging for definition and the grass stamp from the set too.  Rex has been stamped onto Whisper White then coloured using Wild Wasabi and Crumb Cake markers, I've then cut him out and popped him up on dimensionals.  A nice simple card - and I'm told a very happy birthday boy!
