Giraffe invitations

Ok so I have been working away on creating some custom invitations and a banner (which I will show on another post) for some friends. They are having there daughters birthday at the zoo and her favorite animal is the giraffe. I wanted to create something cute and unique so I thought about create secret pop up invitations. I researched a couple YouTube videos on how to create them and this is what I came up with.

This is what the card looks like when it slides and pops up.

This is what the card loos like closed
I forgot to take a picture of the back of the card which is embossed with the happy birthday folder. I am very happy with the way they turned out and my friends love them too.

One last thing I plan on making either a video or putting up instructions on how to make this type of card if anyone is interested. It took me a bit to find a good tutorial on these so I figured I would create one.

I am linking this project over at you had me at craft on her made it myself Monday's post.

Throwback Thursday challenge

I'm back at it again. I decided that I would make a different type of card for the challenge over at my creative time the challenge is to create a project using Doodlecharms cartridge and the color blue. So I thought and I thought all last night of what I would do to make my card different then the ones that have already been submitted. This is what I came up with...

I made an invitation to a beach party that you can turn the wheel at the bottom to get the info for the part-ay.

I went a little doodling crazy on this card also but I really like the way it came out though. I ran the sand castle through my cuttlebug to give a more of a sandy effect. I had the perfect paper for my palm trees the only problem is I do not remember where I got it from sorry. I also used purple stickles for the flag and for the sea horse. Peachy keen stamps were used for the suns face. I hope that you all enjoy my card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Stinkin cute

So I was blog surfing the other day and found a tutorial Hereon how to make a card that holds an antibacterial bottle the little mini ones. I thought it was the cutest thing to give someone so I decided to make one. I love how easy and fun they are to make I cannot wait to make more. So be on the look out for more to come.

I cut the skunk out from create a critter I used pastel pink and purple card stock for him. The purple card stock was pastel but I ran it through my sticker maker so I could flock it, after flocking it became more of a darker purple. I also embossed the background card stock with the traffic jam folder.The actual card base is just red paper studio card stock. As far as the skunks face goes I used peachy keens animal faces to stamp it.
