I am on the Design Team for Sparkles Christmas Challenge and this month I've been recovering from a knee repair and haven't been doing much crafting. That said, I am feeling better and decided that it might be nice to make a Christmas card with this month's challenge. So..... I put together another Impossible Card, this time using a 5x7 base that I had seen on Mixed Up Craft on YouTube. Being so late in the month I thought, if I don't finish this card today I will be too late to post it. So this is what I created....
Now to make the long story short, I checked my notes for the theme of this month and guess what....It isn't bears. So, I am posting another impossible card, but not for the Sparkles Christmas Challenge. I must say, I do like this Christmas card.
Here's the back side with it's sentiment and with a place to add my own greeting. I now have another sweet little card to add to my Christmas stash, but sadly not one for the Sparkles Christmas Challenge.
I did learn something that might be a good technique. This larger card was a bit floppy. It just wasn't standing up so I added a hinge to both sides and the problem was fixed. And it's hardly noticeable. If you are using card stock that is of a lighter weight, or if you are adding embellishments that are a bit heavy you may want to think about adding a hinge or two. For this card I made mine 1 1/2 inches long and 1 inch wide. I folded the 1 inch side in half to measure 1/2 inch and glued the hinge to the moving part.
Well that's it for now. I'm hoping to get a card made for the Sparkles Christmas Challenge. If I don't, I do hope you will check out what everyone has created. So please have a look on May 1st.
