100 Fresh & Fun Handmade Cards Giveaway

Good Morning and Happy Friday to everyone!


Let's celebrate the end to this wonderful week with another card book give away. Today's book is from good friend Kimber.


 


W2288_FreshandFunHandmadeCards


What is fabulous about this book is that it goes beyond your basic folded card. It's full of tons of interactive card ideas and great detailed step outs. I am honored to have been a part of another one my friend Kimber's great books.


I wanted to share one of my cards from the book. I call this one bird in a window. The idea here is one card is a basic card and another card is the same idea but interactive.


Bird-in-a-window-card



If you look closely you can see the card shown above is the basic card. The differences between the 2 are subtle. The card below is the more interactive or advanced card. The window is open and the patterned paper has been mounted to the inside of the card with the idea that it's peeking through the opening.


Bird-in-an-open-window
(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Patterned Paper Echo Park, Stampin Up Scallop Punch, EK Punch, Adhesive Rhinestones from Doodblebug, Corrugated Shapes from Jillibean Soup, Making Memories Paint, Stick Pins JoAnn's)


Leave a comment between now and Monday for your chance to win an autographed copy of Kimber's book.


Now as far as my give away from earlier this week I would like to extend that give away to Monday too. So if you want a chance to win a copy of CardMaps 2 leave a comment on my post from Tuesday.


Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting friends ...
