Wedding Presents Card
I've wanted to create one of these popup presents/cake cards for a while but never had an occasion. Well my niece got married and so I decided to give it a try! I love how it turned out. It was really thick though so I was glad that I wasn't mailing it! LOL. I hope she enjoys it. I can't remember who shared the bride and groom file so if it's yours, please let me know and I'll give you credit. It cut really nice even fairly small. A cute front to this card anyway. At HIMCR they are doing a challenge this week and the winner gets DCWV paper which I happen to love, which by the way, this card is made from so I am going to enter it into their challenge. One can never have too much wonderful paper and DCWV cuts so nicely. Anyway, here's my entry and I happen to find a couple more challenges to complete with it. Love that. I may have to make something else too. We'll see if I have enough time. The challenge was to use at least 3 different kinds of paper. The inside of this card has 4 alone plus the outside has 2 more patterned sheets so a total of 6. Lovin' it! The other challenges have their requirements listed next to their challenge so you can see how I incorporated theirs into my design too. It feels good to be back crafting again. I've missed it. :-) It makes me smile to create fun things and hopefully those that receive them smile too.
