While re-organizing my craftroom (AGAIN), I discovered some forgotten-about, long, blank cards from Making Memories. Although Ben Franklin Crafts no longer carries this product, I thought that the long rectangle format would be something fun to work on for a change from the standard card shape. The inner card slides through the the band cut in the outer card. I used a The Greeting Farm stamp ( I don't know the name) because the card is for someone special who loves cats (and the color turquoise). The image was colored with Copic pens and the die-cut cardstock embellishments are from either Martha Stewart or K and Co. The fun part is when you slide the inner card through the band, the secret message (Stampendous stamp) is revealed. If you decide to make a card like this, be sure to make the part of the card that slides thorough the band free from any thick parts as they will stick in the band. Oh, the 'It's Your Birthday" is a stamp from a Hero Arts set. The bottom photo shows more clearly how the card looked before it was decorated. See how simple it is? You can easily make this card base. I recomment using sturdy card stock if you are going to add a lot of embellishments. Break out of your card rut and try making this card. Thanks for visiting this blog. I love hearing from you, so leave a comment if you have the time.
