JAI #371: Just Choose Two

Hi!

Whoops! A bit of a technical glitch this morning, meaning my post went up late.


This week at Just Add Ink, Di has challenged us to Just Add Two to our cards. The choice is kids, patterned paper or pets.


I'm not too much of an animal person, so I went for kids and patterned paper.

My niece, Zoe, turned 13 last week, so this was a great opportunity to make her a special card for her special birthday. I chose the Foil Frenzy SDSP, as it's card weight card stock, so perfect for a card base.

I saw this style of Pop Up card, made by Jolanda Meurs, so I decided to give it a go for Zoe's card. When folded flat, the front of the card has a window that the 13 sits in. When you open it, this is what you see:

I thought it was such a clever fold, and even better that it lies flat for posting. I added some extra balloons to the inside front of the card, just to help hide the balloons on the front that hung over the window. If I were to make this card again, I would definitely write my message on the inside before adhering it to the card. It was very difficult to write on after sticking it down!

I hope you can join in with the fun this week at Just Add Ink. Which two will you choose? Pets, patterned paper or kids? Check out what the rest of the Design Team have created over at the JAI blog.

Bye for now,

Tina
