May 2022 Card Chain Challenge Reveal


I signed up again for the Card Chain Challenge! Essentially you sign up and make a card that you send to the person before you in the sign up and the person that signed up after you, sends you a card!

For May, I made a card to send to Michaela over in Austria - this is wh
at I sent her:

Here is a photo with the card laying flat:

Here is a photo taken from the front:

Here are the options that we had to make the card:

Theme Options: Desert / Dessert / Friendship

Product / Technique Options: Embossing Powder / Fancy Fold

I chose the Friendship theme and then Fancy Fold!

Here are some photos from different angles:

This is a photo of the inside of the card before I started putting it all together:

Here are some photos of the outside of the card before putting it all together:

Here is a photo of the flowers and Marci laid out before gluing everything down:

We had a virtual workshop at La-La Land Crafts over our ANZAC Day long weekend and this is one of the cards that we made, well the card part anyway - we had a competition to name it and came up with the Tucker Tilt - after Martha Tucker and how the card tilts!
I have used different stamps, dies and papers to what we have in the workshop (I actually haven't finished that card yet!!) 

I have used Marci with Lilies that is part of the new April 2022 Release from La-La Land Crafts and also in the Bloom Album Class! I have also used paper from the Celebrate paper pack (I think!), then Open Daisy Die and Side Daisy Die.

I die cut the daisies in white cardstock and then coloured them with Copics - but my colouring table is such a disaster at the moment (new job is totally crazy but great!) I have no idea what I have used!

The Smile die cut is in the May 2022 Release from La-La Land Crafts and again I have die cut from white cardstock - but I coloured the background piece with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink.

Here is a close up of the colouring of Marci with Lilies before I fussy cut her - the colouring is from Martha's Bloom Album Class:

As usual I found inspiration from La-La Land Crafts DT, who showcased some awesome projects on the La-La Land Crafts blog and as usual, from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Crafting Happiness Challenge #124 - June Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge #5 - Anything Goes

I hope that Michaela likes the card, I was a little late posting it as I have been a little swamped with my new job and travelling :)

Thanks for looking!
