I am Just a Technique Junkie These Days!!!

I knew that when I saw this challenge... I just HAD to play along! I love the cards that do stuff... swing,flip,flop,slide... whatever! I LOVE that they really make a person say "wow... You MADE that?" and I just love to WOW people.(LOL) This was a challenge on SCS this week... the Hinge Card! There was an awesome video tutorial here.

It was easy to understand and believe it or not... I made this card in like 20 minutes! that is a record for me. I used the background stamp from DRS for the bottom half of the card and then I cuttlebugged the top half. I stamped this gorgeous butterfly in black and then painted it with a matching color in SHIMMERZ. Then... when you slide the top open and rotate it on the hinge, that is where the message is. OK... I hope y'all said "WOW!" Anyway, The "One Day at a Time" sentiment is from DRS also and is my personal motto in life! There is plenty of room for a message on the back of the card as stated in the video and she even tells you how to hide the brad! So take a look and play along and WOW someone!!!

Have a great day!
