A moving card.....

Well, this isn't a card about moving.... but it does have moving parts.

As you may be aware, I have recently been away to attend my brothers wedding. Now the bride and groom aren't totally traditional, to say the least. So I thought a quirky humorous card would suit them better.

I got the tutorial to make a moving card like this from the last Ustamp I attended. This card design was submitted by the very talented, Lynn Pratt. Lynn's instructions ended a little further ahead than mine, she had boy + girl + love = baby. Obviously there a lots of different images you can use to create different outcomes.

As you can see below, I used boy + girl + love = wedding cake. I really enjoyed making these little pictures. The cake I used from Fun and Fast Notes. Instead of inking up the whole stamp, I chose one cake and only inked it up.

Now you are probably thinking what a strange colour combination. Well it was a challenge set by the Yahoo group Stampin_Up_In_Oz. Definitely not colours I would normally choose for a wedding card, but they did look great together. And I enjoyed colouring in with my Stampin' Write Markers.

Card: Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron
Punch: Scallop Edge Border, 1 3/4" Circle
Embellishments: Earth Elements Brad
Stamp Sets: Illuminations, All in the Family, Simply Said, Fun and Fast Notes

Till next time, happy stamping...
