Happy Friday eve! I hope you're all having a great week!! Do you have some fun plans for St Paddy's Day?? We're hoping to hit the local parade, something I've never done before, so I'm pretty excited!
The card I have to share today is something I created to fit a couple of different challenges. This week over at Die Cuttin Divas, the challenge is to use the colors Green, Yellow, Black and White. They have a bonus challenge of trying the Iris Fold technique. I had no idea what the Iris Fold was, but one of the Die Cuttin Divas designers, Yvette, has a great tutorial on her blog. Be sure to check it out HERE. I love learning new techniques, so I figured I'd give this one a try! :)
Over at My Craft Spot, the challenge this week is Manly Man Cards. I always have a hard time with cards for guys because I want to add bling and sparkle to many of my creations, so this is definitely a challenge for me!
Here's my take on a manly man card, using the Iris Fold and the colors green, yellow, black and white. I decided to make an easel card and I used my Gypsy and cut a rectangle from Plantin Schoolbook with the cupcake from Doodlecharms on top to create my image layer. Thanks for coming by to take a look!
