Happy Wednesday! It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built. This week we have a tic-tac-toe challenge for you:
The best thing about tic-tac-toe challenges is that there are so many options, and you can basically create your own challenge. I have to admit that I was a little challenged with this one, though. It took a bit of figuring, but I finally decided to use the bottom row. Plus, I used butterflies and off the edge. And here is my card:this tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. I tweaked it a little so my connecting piece was in the middle instead of the bottom. And did you notice how perfectly the chevrons line up between the left and right panels? It took a little bit of figuring out, but it really gives the illusion that it opens like a regular A2 card . . . until it doesn't. : ) Don't you love that glittery butterfly?! After coloring it and fussy cutting it out, I added some glue and SU! Dazzling Diamonds fine glitter. LOVE that stuff; it's so pretty!
Here is is all the way open.Feline Better". Now, it reads: "Hope you're feline better soon" and that 'feline' just didn't go with my card theme at all. But the way the words are placed, I was able to do some creative masking and selective stamping and no one (except all of you!) will ever know. I really like altering my sentiment stamps like this; it really stretches the usage you can get out of just one stamp. Hop on over to The House blog for the full details as we are trying something a bit different this month, which means more chances to win!!
