Well, it’s only taken me all day, but I finally finished a card.  Actually, it’s probably not taken ALL day . . . Mr. Stodgy bought me a printer for the studio this afternoon and that had to be set up and installed, then more organizing needed to be done so the printer would fit.

While I was checking emails and blurfing this morning, I checked in on the Technique Challenge on SplitcoaststampersToday’s challenge is to make a hinged card.  I’ve seen these hinged cards on a number of blogs and just had to play along.

This is the closed card


and then the open card.


This card may not have taken me so long, if I could have made up my mind about a few things.  When I finished the card, I wasn’t satisfied with it.  I ended up adding the brown ribbon along the bottom and then added layers to the cake.  I stamped out and colored two more images, and but them down for the middle and bottom layers.  This I like better!


I hope you’ve had a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
