Gobble 'Til you Wobble!
Only 2 weeks until Thanksgiving? Where is this month going? I'm combining my Cutting Café project today with my second guest designing post for Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions. The wonderful ribbon worked brilliantly with the step card, so it was a perfect fit.
The entire Cutting Café design team is making step cards this week. I can't wait to see what everyone else has done. Check out The Cutting Café blog later today or Thursday -- you'll be amazed! And, leave a comment for a chance to win 3 sets of your own.
Here's my step card, with a twist (or should I say wobble?)
There's a lot going on with this card, so I'll start with the fun ribbon. This is 3/4 " woven twill from the Sparkly Sweet Craft Notion Store.
This side step card from The Cutting Café was very fun to put together. The turkey is part of the turkey shaped card cutting file, and the "Give Thanks" sentiment and frame are from the "Autumn Days" Printable Stamp set.
The "Gobble 'Til You Wobble" sentiment is a Unity stamp.
Now, for the "surprise. The turkey is on an action spring, so he actually wobbles! How fun is that?!?
I tried to get him in motion, but my camera didn't capture the movement well...
You can see a little movement, but the camera "captured" the turkey far too well. I was hoping for a little blur, but couldn't get it.
I took a picture from the side of the card so you could see the action spring:
The adhesive springs are from Close To My Heart. The designer papers are Echo Park Reflections Fall. The card base is Kraft (Close To My Heart).
Oh, what fun I had with THIS card! Between the wonderful ribbon to work with and the very fun cutting files, I had a BLAST!
