WOYWW93 and another card...

Back in Florida, spending my ds' spring break here with him. So my WOYWW desk is the kitchen table. A much nicer view than at home. *smile*

In my last post, I gave the link for a tutorial for a "never-ending" card. Someone remarked that it's a little like a Jacob's Ladder. You can just keep flipping it open over and over until it comes back to the beginning.  Here's a better look at the supplies. I remembered a crafty tip as I worked on this one.

Crafty tip #56: After you've put your paper through your X machine (Xyron 150), rub the surface well then use a stylus or pen to draw around the shape and open areas to make sure the extra adhesive stays on the top sheet that you remove.

I said with the last card that I went a little wacky with all the squares and rectangles but I surpassed wackiness with this card. I made it for my fil's upcoming birthday and I wanted each panel to have a different scene when it was flipped open. What took a little extra time was making the images match up on frames 2 and 3, since part of the image stays the same. You'll see. Here are the four separate frames of the card.

Paper: La Paperie by Jen Wilson for My Minds Eye
Stamps: Happy Birthday (Stampendous), Happy Happy Happy (Unknown)
Ink: Black (Memories)

Thanks for visiting!
