World's Greatest Dad... CTMH Color Dare #82

I was invited to be a Guest Designer on the Color My Heart Color Dare blog this week.

Of course I wanted to participate!  ;)

This week, the color dare challenge is to use Goldrush and Topiary on a project.

And this is what I made using those colors (white, black, greys and tans are allowed too):

(Inspired by this card.)

A fun pop-up card, suitable for Cole to give to Lee for Father's Day.

I created my own pop-up by starting with a White Daisy A2 card base, scored down the center, and with the card closed, I measured in 2" from top and bottom and marking with a pencil.

I drew lines 1" long towards the center of the card starting from the pencil marks.

Then I took my scissors and cut along those lines.

I connected the cut lines by making a score line on the most inner point.

From there I covered the White Daisy card base with a Topiary A2 card, and just glued them together.

Then I stamped and decorated the inside with punches and dies.

And the stars are "floating" on strips of transparency.

Super fun, right?

Check out what everyone else on the Color My Heart Color Dare blog has created, too.

Happy creating!  :)

This is cool!

This is so much fun! I thought at first the stars were attached to the base with foam tape. How clever to use transparencies. I can just see their movement as he opens the card. Thank you for sharing how you made it. Thank you, also, for joining us at Color My Heart.

I love your card, Vicki. It's so bright and colorful! Even the chevrons, which can often be overwhelming, are just perfect. Any Dad would love it.
