I'm going to have to give myself a good talking to and a good old shake and make an effort - and I really do think it's going to take a big effort....
Daring Cardmakers Day today and boy! did I struggle with this one!
it's Rein here this week, my dare is called
Fun and Games
I'd like you to make a card which also has a little extra element of fun :
*It could include a game for the recipient to play
*Or you could put moving things on your card such as flapping wings or wheels that really work
*Or it can bee an advent calendar card with doors and windows to open...
The team have had a lot of fun with this one and we hope our ideas will inspire you to join in - we're looking forward to seeing what you make.
I think maybe it felt a bit too close for comfort to getting back into teachery ways! Eventually I went with a Christmas variation on "Pin the Tail on the Donkey"
The pin is actually a lump of blu-tack, but my brain hurt too much to think of anything better to use on a card,
It's a big 8" square card so plenty of room to plonk that fluffy nose in the "wrong" place
Materials and Tools
Papers and image: Funky Hand (see * below)
Red Felt, Black and White card scraps, Black and White gel ink pens
Daisy Quilling die from Cuttlebug
* I've used the Funky Hand "Twelve Crafters Crafting" CD from last year for the image and the papers. The blue background paper is from the "Wintry Magic" section and the other designs are all from the "Merry Christmas" set.
The "Workspace" facility on these Papercraft Factory cds is brilliant!
I printed the snowflake paper and the reindeer border all in one go. All you do is select the paper and send it to the workspace, then drag the images over, resizing and putting into the places you want to use then before hitting the print button.
I used the ready coloured version for the border design, but the outline version to make the large reindeer so that I could paper-piece him together in several of the designs.
I was going to make a pompom for the nose, but I don't have any red wool, so I hunted around for an alternative. Using a Cuttlebug Quilled flower die and some felt was just an experiment, but it worked perfectly - and had the added benefit of producing a flat-backed "pompom"
A nice easy card and not a bad idea for something to make with the kids. If you don't have digi images that would work, try checking the web for suitable free colouring pages - then they can do the colouring too
