Happy Birthday, Frances (Hoots)!!!!!!
Frances continues as the hostess for the CCEE Stampers Challenge. This is her challenge for us this week.
As today is my birthday let's create a card that includes the things I love … owls and cards that pop up; flip or pull open; accordion style etc. Any type of construction style card will do anything goes but preferably not a flat card this week.
Any one who knows me well will know that this was truly a challenge for me. I am not a fancy/fussy fold kind of stamper. However, I admire so much when others make fancy fold cards. Hoots is the queen of fancy fold cards in my book. So......I put my discomfort aside and moved on.
Frances has enabled me to buy a few of these fancy fold dies, but I was intent on using the images you see, so I devised a pop up card design of my own. I have decided, having made this card, that it is actually not the fancy folds that put me out of my comfort zone. It is the 'decorating' of them that I find challenging. Thus you will see that mine is pretty straight forward and not particularly clever. The iimages are by Art Impression. These images are winter images, honoring the fact that Hoots, being in Australia, is just ending her winter months.
Be sure to stop in at the CCEE Blog to see the other fancy fold, OWL creations by the rest of the team..
Have a fabulous b'day, Hoots!!!
