Thinkin' PINK ... In a Pink "Living Room"

Pin It


Today's way over-the-top card project was created for the Caardvark's "Think Pink" blog challenge. Hey, if it's pink you want, it's pink you'll get, LOL!

The card was created on a Bazzill card stock base, using designer papers from Deja Views and Making Memories.

I stamped my chairs with an antique "Hooked On Stamps" stamp using Distress Ink, die-cut a scallop-edged "rug," mounted an original vintage (1920) photograph under a slide mount, created a "mirror" using a chipboard die-cut and tin foil, stamped my sentiment, and punched out two kitty images. Hey, what's a living room without two kitties?!?


The photos below show how the card is folded up for mailing:

The chairs and the kitties are mounted to the card stock "floor" with paper hinges. Simply flip the dimensional objects forward:

And fold everything up in a tidy square!

This card is so a bit time consuming to make but so much fun ... and people (especially kids!), really seem to enjoy receiving a "room" card.

Thanks so much for sharing part of your busy day with me; you rock!

How much fun is that?! Love this one and may just have to tuck that idea away for any upcoming kiddy cards, they do like a bit of interaction, don't they?! Love the rug under the chairs, nice touch!
