At the end of June, members of the Avid Inkers Team met after a long break. It happened to be one of the member’s 50th birthday. She said she couldn’t think of a nicer way to celebrate her special day. That’s a lot to live up to but we had serious fun, including a rainbow birthday cake. It’s great that my team is also part of a bigger team which meets periodically.

We made two mystery projects, both fun fold cards, which were led by Vicki and Karen.

Vicki led the the project to create a Trifold Spanner Panel card. These are the landscape shaped cards. Karen led a projects to create a Pop Out Swing Card, which are portrait shaped. The pic above shows everyone’s cards. We had so much fun making them and they were all gorgeous (and FLORAL!)

This pic shows my version of Vicki’s Trifold Spanner Panel Card.

This pic shows my take on Karen’s Pop Out Swing Card. Notice that it has a panel stuck to the inside of the card front, which makes it operate much more smoothly than the traditional design of this card fold.

  • Inks: – Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Bumble Bee
  • Card: – Merry Merlot, Whisper White, Beauty of the Earth DSP
