View Master Card

Remember looking through View Masters when you were a kid? (Okay - maybe I am 'dating' myself!!!!)

This card was simple to make - and is a unique way to give someone a greeting for any occasion - Birthday, New Baby, Christmas, Thanksgiving or any other occasion you can think of! ! You spin the View Master wheel, and expose various images!

I used the directions by a fellow Angel, Joani. Click on this link to see her instructions. The paper I used is from our Reece SWIC, and the stamp set I used was Christmas Mini's. It worked perfectly for the little spaces!

The dimensions I used were: main card, 5 1/4" x 10 1/2", the patterned paper was 5" x 5" and the circle I cut for the View Master Piece was 4 1/4". I cut it on my Cricut machine.

This Halloween card features a stamp from a stamp set called Flourish Trees of Hope. It isn't a stamp set one would typically use for a Halloween card. It is great fun to use stamps in a non-traditional way! I made a little Halloween Tree by putting dots of Orange Peel Stickles on the tree. The pumpkin is from the stamp set For All Seasons - a nice, basic stamp set to have to make cards for many different holidays and occasions! The sentiment is from Happy Haunting! How did I make the moon????? I punched a circle from a large circle punch, and used the negative to create the circle by sponging with the Paris Lights Palette Ink Pad. Super Easy!!! Then - I finished the card using some black ribbon and an abundance of colors of our FABULOUS Scrappers Floss! The patterned paper I used was Cha Cha!

I am working on some cards for a Kids Cards Stamp a Stack I will be hosting. This is one of them I came up with. I just think these Robots are a lot of FUN! And the Bright cardstock and Kaleidoscope Boyz paper is sure to bring a smile to a child's face!
