Welcome to my blog and thank you for coming by, I hope you enjoy my challenge.
I chose to remember our CHILDHOOD SUMMERMEMORIES.
I had so much fun designing this card, remembering my childhood and all the things I enjoyed during my summer breaks from school. I hope it inspires you to design your SUMMER MEMORIES CARD too.
You can submit your entry from my challenge below by using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. In addition, you can send your cards to OWHin support of our brave men and women serving in our armed services.
Your challenge is to make a card using the SUBWAY ART technique. Your card needs to be no larger than 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, so it can be mailed in a standard A2 envelope. Here is my completed card.
How to make your Subway Art In designing my card I made a list of my favorite SUMMER MEMORIES in a Word document, went back changed the font style and color for each, then made adjustments to the font size for each line so it comes out evenly.
The green paper ribbon border (MS) was punched on both sides, then layered with the pink ribbon border punch (EK Success). I wrapped the yarn around the card and tied a bow to secure it. Subway Art is 3x3, then layered with the black and blue paper.
Specialty Paper: K&Company-Citronella
Card stock: White for card base and Black
Punches: MS and EK Success
Embellishment: Yarn-Sugar'n Cream-Denim Twists
Extras: Pop-ups (sentiment

Hope you are all had a great weekend. This is a peek-a-boo card that I learned how to make from a Jenn Travis You Tube Video.This is an interactive card that you pull on both sides. By pulling on the sides you expose the center of the card, hence, the name peek-a-boo card.
The free flower and bee clip art can be found HERE. I used Sharpie pens to color the flowers and bees, and Stickles to highlight them both. For the background I used an Sizzix embossing folder to give dimension. Please leave comment, or a message letting me know if you create a card using this tutorial.
Hello everyone and welcome to my blog, I hope you are enjoying the blog hop. If you are just joining us now, you can go to Luisa’s blog to start at the beginning. This is my first tutorial and I'm very excited about sharing my graduation centerpiece with all of you.
