CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK


.

This week, we are really spoiling you - how? -

We are giving you a choice of which design of Card you want to make up for your Challenge entry


STAIR STEP FOLD CARD

or

FREE STANDING POP UP CARD


Both of these techniques are covered in full for you in the Tutorial section, so maybe having a look at these will help you decide which one you want to create for the Challenge this week.
Remember you can print off the Tutorials for you to refer to as you create your card. They are both a little challenging, but the finished result is well worth the effort -they really will allow your creativity to blossom.

The Design Team were all asked to create the Stair Step Fold card, and Dawn has followed this style of card but turned it on its side, so this is an option too. Debbie has done both because we asked her to create a feature Free Standing Pop Up card as part of her tutorial this week, and she has done a magnificent job.
A special thank you this week to Murielle from Scrapmumur who is our Guest Designer of the week, she has produced a really beautiful card for us.

You will find hopefully lots of inspiration from the DT cards, there is also loads more information and photographs on each individual DT members blog - so just click on their name above the photo images and it will take you there. Clicking on the card itself will enlarge the card for you to see more detail

So - go create - we cannot wait to see what you come up with xx
