ClubCK Weekly Card Challenge April 15 - 21, 2012
Every week I look forward to the Card Challenge that is posted on the ClubCK website. We have such a wonderful and creative group of ladies and we take turns posting challenges. This week, our hostess was Patti and she presented us with some beautiful cards she had made that move. And her challenge to us was to make a card that had movement. Well, I decided to make a card with a kite that would fly. I used the Cricut Craft Room to cut out the die-cuts. The Kite and the white cloud are found on the Nate's ABC's cartridge. I used the Christmas Cheer Cartridge to cut out the banner from the cloud paper. Then after cutting out the die-cuts and assembling them. I put a small brad through the center of the kite. Then through the negative image of the banner from the front of the cloud paper. On the back side of the cloud paper, I attached the brad to a circle of cardstock. This allows the kite to move back and forth through the banner cut-out. Adding a piece of twine allows you to "fly" the kite. Definitely an interesting challenge. I had never done anything like that before! The patterned paper is from the Summertime Collection by Echo Park Paper. Below is a short video showing how the kite moves. I have never made a video before so this was a challenge too! If you are not familiar with ClubCk, then I would encourage you to check it out at www.clubcreatingkeepsakes.com. Have a blessed day!
