Trying a card challenge…

I’m not a cardmaker, but I’ve developed an interest in papercraft since I looked at making custom packaging for my polymer clay jewellery and got a glimpse of all the incredible things that people were doing.

A couple of days ago I commented on a challenge card that the lovely Narelle Fasulo had made, and she jokingly said she’d covert me to a card maker yet. And even get me to love flowers. Eek!

The flower-loving bit would be quite a stretch, but I figured I’d give challenge cardmaking a go. I mostly like clean and simple designs so the CAS(E) this Sketch challenges appealled.

So here’s my very first card shared anywhere, my interpretation of CAS(E) this Sketch #127.

CAS(E) this Sketch #127 card 1 - Sue Fisher

This is the sketch I worked from:

CTS_127

Update 21 June 2015

It was a lovely surprise to learn that the folks over at CAS(E) this Sketch selected this card as one of their favourites for this challenge! Talk about encouraging!

I gather I get to display this…

Cool, huh? :D

    1. Thanks Narelle! :)

      And it’s a… thing. The idea didn’t quite work out in practice the way it looked in my head! Originally I wasn’t going to split the lifted-up sections, but was going to curl and twist the top two differently to the bottom two for a semi-butterfly effect. But it didn’t look right so the card above happened instead. I’ll have another go at my original idea later… will probably have to trim the paper, I think.
