CC Challenge #13

The details for CropChocolate Challenge #13 read "Karen and Michele have done this week's challenge: Create a project using the following recipe: Spring themed. Must contain 3 folds somewhere. Use 2 DIFFERENT paper lines." [Details for the current CropChocolate challenge.]

The rules read "Post a picture of your design. 50% of the product used must be from Please include items used in the description of your entry. Contest ends on May 2nd, 2012 at 08:00:00am Mountain. Please submit your entry before then. $10 CropCredit in a random drawing."

I decided to try to meet the criteria for two challenges with this one project. The requirements for other challenge read: "Create a project that includes FABRIC. :)"

I decided to create a jump-up card (some people call them pop-up cards) because the number of folds helped me meet one of the requirements (and I like how it looks and had not tried one yet). I found how to make it in a leaflet that came with The Ultimate Crafter's Companion. The card base is made from 12x12 BasicGrey Out of Print Etchings (out-3316). I started with a 6x12 piece of cardstock and completed all of the folds to make the card.

I then pulled out this piece of batik fabric.

I used Sizzix Flower Layers Set #3 and my Big Shot to cut the flowers from the fabric.

I used Fancy Pants Chi-Chi Fancy-Free Collection by Nancie Rowe Janitz Beautify (item #971), QuicKutz Squeeze and QuicKutz dies to cut my leaves and tag.

I attached the flowers using Making Memories Crystal Brads (light medium square) and the tab using Making Memories Metallic Mini Flower Brads.

Here is a close-up of the flowers:

This photo shows how the card stands on its own:

And here is the completed card:

Other products used: The Ultimate Crafter's Companion, Viper by SnakeTape, black gel pen and Zig 2 Way Glue.

I hope that you like my completed project. Comments are appreciated.
