DRS DESIGNS Flap Card Challenge

So I made this card for the challenge over at DRS. The Challenge was to make a card with a flap. I LOVE a good challenge... so I was READY! I made a card like this with my monthly stamp club and I thought it was too good not to share it! I used a die cut and cut it leaving the fold so the card would have a flap. I stamped the piggies in the mud on the background in versamark and then I colored the first part of the hogwash sentiment with a marker and stamped it and mounted it on the blue paper and put it on the front. Then for the inside, i cut another shape, but only half of it and glued around the edges to make a pocket. Then I added the gift card...(so noted by the way I wrote GIFT CARD on the paper I used for it) and inserted it into the "pocket" inside the flap. Then I colored the other part of the hogwash sentiment and added it to the inside above the pocket. For the ribbon, I sis the "Faux Bow" technique at the top, near the fold and here is my card! I hope that you will enjoy it and that you will play along with the challenge!Check out the blog with all of the details here! thanks for stopping by!
