IAAS Make card style you haven't made before

 Come and join us at International Art and Soul and show us what you can do with this theme. CG chose 'Make a card style you haven't made before' and it was difficult for me to come up with something. I've tried almost every style going and I still prefer the plain square or rectangle, occasionally branching out to a circle or oval if the image demands it. lol 

I hadn't tried a rocker card so this is it! I decided that it would be for a child because I don't think my friends or family would be in to this style.

I used my Spellbinders large circle to cut into a sheet of white card and then cut a smaller scalloped circle in dark blue, both sheets of card from Papermill. After matting the scalloped circle on to the white I carefully folded them in half and used my bone folder to give them a good crease. Yes, they stood up and rocked when I pushed them - so far so good. I used more Spellbinder dies, in a smaller size, to cut pale blue and white before matting them together. This is when I decided to use some Disney stickers which I've had forever!! I placed them around the pale blue scalloped circle before adding the circle to the rocker. When it rocks it looks fun for a child but I don't think I'll be making any more of this style either.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

  7. What a lovely card you have made here which fits perfectly the Lemon Shortbread Monthly Challenge this fortnight. It's nice to try different styles of cards and this rocker card is perfect. I had problems when I first did easel cards as the recipients didn't know how to stand them up. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Lemon Shortbread Design Team Member).
