From A to Z - Card - April 2 - April 8...Winner is....

Dispel the Monday blues with this Monday morning to Sunday night challenge.

Moderator: Ellie

Good morning everyone! I hope the Easter Bunny found you and that you are enjoying lots of chocolate bunny goodness! I have a fun challenge for you this week. It is a double "Z" Fold card and super fun and super easy.

Here is my example of a Z card that I inserted two brackets to the center and attached the treasure chest and another floating mermaid (she is attached to a piece of acetate which gives her the illusion of floating or swimming). I imported all of the images into my Silhouette cameo, had the machine print and cut them out for me and then I colored them with my copic markers. I would have liked the picture to have turned out better but it did look better on my camera phone :)


Here is a video tutorial on how to do these fun shaped interactive cards.

This video doesn't tell you how to put the extra brackets in the center but I just cut two strips of the blue swirl and then folded them in a "U" shape that would fit inside the fold.

I hope you get a chance to play this week. I will choose a winner next Sunday night, April 8th. Have fun everyone!!

Barry, I haven't made one of these cards in a while. Love your sample card. How ingenious to make the middle mermaid 'swim' with acetate brackets. I'm going to remember that idea!
