Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good day. I have been back to work this morning it was a training day so no children not until tomorrow.

I don't usually post twice in one day. Two of the Design Teams I am on their challenges start today. This is my inspiration card for the Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog. The theme of the challenge is Anything Goes and it really can be anything, any craft you like. I make a lot of cards so that is what I stuck to.

I have had the Sizzix accordion die for a very long time and I decided this was finally time to use it.  The die cuts the card with flaps to attach one piece to another piece and the score lines for folding. 

In my stash I had a very old Hunkydory kit with pre-made card blanks I decided to cut them up to make this card. That way everything toned together. 

The kit came with vintage toppers that fitted the die cuts so well. 

This is not a particularly easy card to photograph. I do like how it folds out. I thought the use of pearls and the corners were a nice finishing touch.  

This is the front of the card and would be what someone would see when it is first opened.  Now I have used this die once I have lots of ideas for what to do next. I would like to make a mini album for the grandparents with photos of all the grandchildren and their partners. 

We have a Sponsor this month Di's Digis and the prize it three images of the winners choice from the store. The Design Team didn't get any images to use but I have looked at the store and the images are very cute. 

Don't forget the theme is Anything Goes so there is lots of scope and the entry doesn't have to be a card. 

I would like to enter the challenge at Try it on a Tuesday - try something new. 

I would also like to enter the challenge at Cuttlebug Mania - Anything Goes.

I hope that you have a good week.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
