C4C332 Sketch Pull Tab Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means there is a new challenge on the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our April  Hostess is Rebecca Ednie and the talented Teresa Kline from Paperie Blooms joining us as our Guest designer. I've been a long time fan of Teresa's so I'm excited she can join us!

Rebecca has this fun sketch for us this week:

I had fun with this sketch! I decided to make a 4 x 9" card, taking advantage of the bird design on the patterned paper. Because it's a flat, post card style card, it will fit in a regular #10 business envelope.

To make it interactive, I added the Hanging Charm Pull Tab to the top portion for the oval in the sketch. That little to-go coffee cup charm is so cute! I used a fine point marker through the stencil lines in the holder for more definition and fade out stamped the coffee beans.

When you pull the tab at the top, the frame slides up and the coffee cup dangles in the opening. This also reveals the greeting, a stamped "flying by to say" with more stamped coffee beans.

Here is a look at the back, with a doodled border and die cut coffee beans as well as a stamped greeting.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C332.
