Blogger’s Challenge 26 – Movable Cards

This week’s challenge was very challenging for me since I’ve never made a movable card before, so I had to wing it!  I’ve read "about" movable cards, and I’ve seen them in magazines, so I wasn’t totally in the dark!  The challenge could be a shaker or slider card–or anything that moves!


I had planned to do a tutorial on this card since I’ve never done one before, but we got a call this afternoon from our daughter.  As you’ll remember from my blogger’s challenges from the past couple weeks, I recently was staying with my daughter and granddaughters for three weeks as she recovered from surgery.  Missy called today with kind of distressing news that she is suffering complications from that surgery and has to return to the hospital tomorrow morning for a procedure.  She has no one that can take her, so we are leaving shortly to go back–275 miles.  We had planned to be there this weekend for Christmas, but this moves it up by a couple days, and of course I’m not ready yet.  So, the tutorial will have to wait.  I had a lot of fun making this card and adding some bling–so the next one should go much easier for me…I hope!

I used Orchid Opulence card stock and designer paper from Basic Grey from the Fruitcake collection.  It has such a fun print and I just love the colors–not traditional Christmas colors, which I totally love!  I cut the circle shape out with a round Nestabilitie die, and used a clear Stampin’ Up!® envelope since I cannot find the huge box of transparency sheets I have (that is so typical!).  I used 3M 1/4" foam tape to assemble the envelope, and filled it with fun sequins and jewels I purchased (in bulk) from Dick Blick.  I stamped the snowflake (last year’s SU!® Snow Flurries) with white Craft ink (which does not dry BTW–will have to work that out later), and used beautiful organdy and gold striped ribbon from the Pink Hedgehog.  The photo corners were punched with a SU! punch; the ink I used to distress all the edges is SU!® Classic Chocolate Chip (my new favorite neutral ink), and the sentiment is from I Brake for Stamps.

Once again, thank you so much for looking!!!
