QUIKUTZ CARDS and KORIN'S CHALLENGE





This weekend, my friend Joy came over with a pack of supplies to make a card. The package was filled with several Quikutz Animals, 4 different sheets of patterned paper, and an assortment of baby boy colors of cardstock. The mission was to create a card with WOW factor for her daughter's Baby Shower Invitations...

She wanted a LONG card - so I made this one... What do you think? Does it have the WOW factor?









On World Card Making Day, Korin gave us this sketch challenge. It's not your typical card, however, it is a tri-fold card. You can see her sample here. My card base measures 5.5"x11" and scored it lengthwise at 3.75" and again at 8" and folded it so I had two flaps to open, one on each side.


Add to the Christi's challenge of Paper Piecing and I was able to do three things at once! WOOHOO! And who said you lose brain power when you are multi tasking? LOL






Here is Korin's sketch.



Here is another sample for Joy to use as some inspiration...

What do you think? Does it have the *WOW* factor?


She wanted me to use the monkey and the giraffe on the front of the card, but I couldn't get it to look balanced, so I thought the tri-fold card would be perfect for this...







This is the front of the card...




Then you open it to see the cute little giraffe...














Then you open the card all of the way and you see the invitation...

I think they are both good. Guess it depends on how much work you want to put into the cards and how many you have to make. The first one would take less time, the second one more. Just depends on the amount of time to get them done and how many needs to be done.

My favorite is the first card you posted. That quickuts money is so cute--definitely wow! To answer your question on my blog, I am defintely a mentee, not a mentor. Dr. Joneal Kirby who lives in my town developed the program we are using. I'm positive it will go nationwide very soon. Thanks for asking!
