I spent a weekend with my artist friend Ann. One evening she showed me all the things you can learn on YouTube. We came upon this card, which looked rather interesting.
It's called a "Waterfall Card".Google to demonstrate what happens when you pull the tab. The card flips open, one little page after the other.
After two waterfall cards I was hooked~on cardmaking and YouTube!
The next card was even MORE fascinating. The "Double-Pull out Card".
Imagine this closed, just the little owls showing; then pull the tab at the left and as the left comes out so does the right! "How'd they do that?" With a strip of plastic bag!!!
Now this took me several attempts before I could get the two sides to move at the same time.....but, practise makes perfect. Well maybe not perfect yet~ but it helps a lot!
I folded some money and put it in the pocket of the right side pop-out.
On to the "Easel Card".
These start flat, then when opened can be propped up to stand like an easel.
I'm on a roll...... and the creative juices are flowing; with the help of Pinterest and YouTube....(and Michaels, JoAnn's and Amazon.com.)
~ each one of those itsy bitsy little jewels was put on one at a time.
|Both of these cards were made with recycled materials.|
|#28 With two pockets. Card made with a recycled gift bag.|
I just completed #32 and there are two on my table ready to put together. It sometimes takes hours to pick out the paper combinations, embellishments and the best fold or design for a card.
I have been card making for years....usually at Christmas...so I dug into my closet and brought out all the Christmas supplies. I think I'll get a jump-start on Christmas cards.
