Last Friday, I got unbelievable news that I was one of the Top 20 finalists for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol 2012! (Have no idea what I'm talking about? Check out the Paper Crafts blog for more info) First came a rush of giddiness (squeee!) quickly followed by a wave of panic (oh...em...gee...). After some deep breathing and a little chocolate, I turned my attention to the Round 2 theme, You Color My World! I had already done this card and this card for the open audition round, so I was feeling a bit tapped out. So this weekend, I brainstormed, I sketched, I browsed a billion Pinterest images....only to end up doing what I usually do. I winged it! Here's what I came up with!
I can hear you asking, where's the COLOR? My friend, just pull the tab (see the clear thingie next to the word "you") and wait for it...
It's sprinkling sprinkles! I know I always say this, but this card is easier to make than it looks! This card is basically just a modified version of a shaker card. Instead of one visible well, you have one visible and one hidden! The wells are super easy to make using fun foam (double up on the layers). For added fun, put a small piece of acetate between the wells to create a pull tab.
Before I sign off, I just want to express how thankful I am that you stopped by! Your visits and kind words really mean so much! I encourage everyone to visit all the Top 20 blogs and put in your vote HERE (even if it's not for me:)! And regardless whether I advance to the next round, I feel *so* lucky to have had this experience and to have met such wonderful and talented designers! Just look at these ladies! How can you not be inspired by this bunch?
With that, I leave you with much mahalo and aloha,
