Crafty Cardmakers #37 and Cupcake Crafts #124 Challenges


The challenge this week at Crafty Cardmakers was to use red and a diecut and at Cupcake Craft it was to try something new. The awesome cardinal stamp from Prickley Pear comes with a diecut to cut it out. And just about everything about this card is new: the stamps (including the sentiment from AMuse and the musical background from Prickley Pear); the border punch from ek success and the Funky Fold layout of the card. I had never tried this type of card before, but saw a card on line that directed me to a video here. I love different and unique folds and this one was fun and easy to do. I even adjusted the sizes for an A2 card and will post that card on another day.

Stamping smiles, Karen
