Heart Wiper Card

My second card has come into reality. This is what they call a wiper card, it's really cute, when you pull each end whatever you have hidden inside pops up, very tactile and interactive. I found this K&Company Designer Paper Pad at Michael's, it's 12 X 12 and called Lovely, some of the papers are great for scrapbook pages, just add pictures and you would be good to go. However, I'm a card maker, sooo, I cut up different elements from a big sheet and cut the light blue piece right out of the middle. The big piece of paper had some distressed sepia edges in spots, but when I cut it out of the middle I lost that, but wanted that look. I looked around, decided to take a piece of cardboard, held it with it's edge against the ink pad and schooched it back and forth to ink it up, pressed and schooched it along the edges of paper til it looked like I wanted. Sometimes you don't need expensive tools.
I found another challenge blog that's new to me-Paper Sundaes , they have a very pretty blog, so hop over and check them out.
