Stamptacular have a fab challenge this week to make a card featuring 3-D, Nikki has donated a great prize too. Dutch Dare are asking us to make a 'Christmas in August' card and are offering up a Magnolia stamp as a prize. So here's my combination of the two challenges card:
The 3-D feature is the fact it's a spinning card and the centre circle is suspended on silver thread and spins around! Plus...ta -dah... the snowflake is 3-D too. And it was a bit of an awkward one to make so don't expect to be seeing any more posted here!
The snowflake stamps are from an Artemino set and I've stamped them with various Stazon inks onto acetate then cut them out with Nestabilities circles. The 3-D bit comes from layering them up with huge blobs of silicone glue. The background paper is from Lili of the Valley and the darker paper for the frame is DCWV. I stamped the border strip from the Artemino set.
Here's a close up of the back of the spinner / inside of the card:
And here's a particularly rubbish photo to show the 3-D layering of the snowflake:
Had a lovely time with my parents, Blake slept whilst we ate which was a minor achievement to say the least. I gave him a bath and got him all snuggled up in a cute clean baby grow (in blue, no more of this mistaking for a girl malarkey) and as soon as my parents left he exploded in the nappy department. He has since had another bath and is in another outfit!
Thanks for all the lovely comments you've been leaving recently, very much appreciate every single one of them. I pop by and visit you too as often as I can, I think blog hopping is fast becoming my second favourite hobby
