What a cool card...

design!!! Today's technique challenge was a two way open card...what a fun card to make!!!

Here is mine...images by DRS Designs...








I know Mothers Day is right around the corner, but this was the first idea that popped into my head!!! I'm in the process of making one like this for Mom so stay tuned! This is a simple card, even though it doesn't look like it. I followed the directions on the original post (I added an extra kraft layer in between the chocolate and rust b/c it looked too open). After cutting my cream panel, I crumpled it up, smoothed it out and then stamped and heat embossed...when it was cool I crumpled it again, smoothed it out and then rubbed some brown ink over the wrinkles. I used my edge distressor for the rough edges...

I think that's about it...if you have any questions, let me know!

As I mentioned, stay tuned for a Mom's day (non-western) version! Assuming it comes out the way I am picturing it!!! Also, keep checking back...this weeks starts a new set of CC Designs, sneak peeks! All I can say is...Cute, Cute, Cute!!!

Thanks for stopping by...
See you soon...

I did a similar card to this once, but yours looks a TON cooler - maybe need to try again! Fun stuff!
