Happy Insta Girls Oster Blog Hop
Hi everyone and welcome back to another Happy Insta Girls Blog Hop! This time we will share some Easter cards with you that we created. We are a group of girls who met on Instagram and the lovely Birka brought this blog hop to life! I hope you'll have fun and enjoy all the cards that you'll find along the way! :)
I received this wonderful card by Sonja! Isn't it just the perfect Easter card? I was really happy when I received it and now it has a special spot on my wall! :)
For this blog hop I wanted to make another interactive card. For my birthday last year I received this amazing birthday card. If you pulled on one side, the image would change to another. And I just had to try it!! So I cut it open, traced all the individual pieces, scanned it with my Scan'N'Cut and created a cutting file. (The plan was to share it with you today but it doesn't work 100% and I still had to adjust while creating the card so I decided to post it whenever I have the chance to make it work.)
For my card I needed two panels. To create these I used the Chirpy Chirp Chirp stamp set by Lawn Fawn. For the front panel I started off stamping three eggs. I also used the grass border stamp and stamped it along the bottom of the panel in light and dark green, overlapping. For the cloud background I masked off the eggs and used a self-made cloud sencil and applied Tumbled Glass distress ink over the edges of the stencil. I finished the panel stamping the sentiment "chirpy-chirp-chirp!".
For the second panel I wanted three little chicken being hatched, so I stamped the different chicken and egg shells, masking off specific parts. I also stamped the grass border stamp again and also created the cloudy background to match the front panel. This time, I used the sentiment "[translation: happy easter!]".
And now the scary part began. I had to cut my self-made cutting file for the card from the created panels. If that didn't work for whatever reason, I would have re-create the whole thing. BUT... eyerthing worked out fine! :)
Now I had to assemble the card. I adhered the back panel to the inside of the card shell that I cut from grass green cardstock. Then I had to threaded the front panel in the back panel and closed the card shell. I also applied yellow washi tape to the bottom and front to make sure that the shell stays shut. You can see the card in action in the video below.
I hope you enjoyed my card! Now hop along and see what Katrin created for you! Happy Easter!
