Welcome back to our Just Add Ink challenges for 2017. It's always so exciting starting off a new year, and I love that we start the year of challenges with a Blog Hop. Usually I get to see everyone's creations before challenge day, but on Blog Hop day I get to hop along and be surprised just like all of our lovely followers.
You may have arrived here from Christine's blog, or you may have started here. It really doesn't matter, just keep hopping until you get back to where you started!
To kick us off in style for 2017 we are all making projects with an Interactive or Pop-Up element. I decided to make a 3D spinning card using the new Lift Me Up range of products.
I used the Up & Away Thinlits to cut through both the card base and the DSP at the same time. It's not really recommended that you do this, but I wanted to get the two layers to line up perfectly. I then stamped and cut 4 smaller balloons. I folded each one in half, and then glued them together. Before I glued the last balloon in place I added a piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine through the middle. This twine is then firmly held in place between the layers of cardstock and Carried Away DSP.
Here's the inside of the card. I kept all of the elements low so that they can't be seen when the card is closed.
That's it for me, now you're off to Narelle's blog.
Of course, if you get lost, just pop back to the Just Add Ink and pick up where you got lost. It's also where you link your cards when you enter the challenge. Don't have a blog? You can still enter - just email the JAI team with your card and we will add it to the entries.
Bye for now,
