more Anything Goes at the Crafty Gals Corner

It's time for another challenge with us at the

This week we are letting our creative juices flow with
Crafty Gals Corner Challenges are bi-weekly.

Prize: 1 image used by the DT


Today I have used the Couple Clipart image and the Happy Anniversary sentiment (one of several included in the set) from the Couple Clipart digital stamp set and several of the patterned papers from the Love Hearts digital paper set from Twinkle Lane Designs, one of our generous sponsors this week, to make a pair of anniversary cards.


 My first card is a tall A5 CAS side fold.
The soft pink hearts inside the stitched diamonds are so pretty.

For this card I used the Love Heart Paper 5 digital papers from the Twinkle Lane Designs Love Hearts digital paper set.  Using my Silhouette Cameo design mat, I added the patterned paper panel to an A5 sheet.  I made a panel for the top of the card using the same pink, cropped the image panel into a circle shape and layered it over the digital paper panels to make a card front.

I printed the card front on A5 X-Press It blending card, heat set, then coloured with Copic markers.  I scored an A4 sheet of heavy white cardstock to make the card base then adhered the front panel to complete the card.  ... oops, nearly finished, the final touch was a pink rhinestone for her necklace.


Next comes my twist pop-up card, such a fun interactive fold.

I used a cut file purchased from the Silhouette Design Store (details below) to make the mechanism and base.  I added an offset to the smallest heart and created some extra layers to decorate the front panel of the card.  I also added an extra card base to give it more strength to handle the weighty embellishments inside.  I used the "Love Heart Paper 6" (for the four smallest hearts inside the card) and the "Love Heart Paper 3" (for the two patterned panels matting the base inside the card), two of the six digital papers from the Twinkle Lane Designs Love Hearts digital paper set.

To make the layered letters for the LOVE sentiment inside, I used the Lori Whitlock LW Sweetie Pie font, cut them in red, added an offset, cut them in white, then adhered them together.

I printed the image panel on X-Press It blending card, heat set then coloured with Copic markers, then trimmed down to size, matting before adhering to the card front.

The card stands 6" tall.

Here is the closed, front view of the twist pop-up card.

and here is a peek of what it looks like when opened

such a fun surprise and the mechanism works so smoothly for opening and closing






... and here they are together


NOW it's YOUR turn!
