December 2021 NC Demos Blog Hop

 Merry Christmas and welcome to the NC Demos Blog Hop.  We are here the last Sunday of each month and are so glad you could join us.  I sincerely hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year.

We were given a challenge this month to make a card based on the roll of the dice.  Our card has to use paper from the Brights family, has to be a Birthday card and have texture, use DSP and layers.  So my card this month is a fun fold twist on an easel card.  Not my idea I cased it from fellow demonstrator Debbie Henderson.


I had to use the new Awesome Otters Sale A Bration Stamp Set and the Sunshine and Rainbow 6x6 Sale A Bration DSP, love the new stuff in the brochure.

My card is Melon Mambo cut 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 after folding add the DSP which I cut 5 1/4 x 4 and 4 x 2 1/2 this is now the base of my card.

Took another piece of Melon Mambo and cut it 9 x 3 and scored it at 4 1/2 for this piece I cut a piece of DSP a different design and white at 4 1/4 x 2 3/4.  The DSP I put on the front of the card and on the white I stamped in black the otter in the water at the bottom of the paper and colored him in with blends.


On a piece of white  3 1/2 x 2 I stamped another otter and sentiment and again colored them in with blends and put this piece on the front of this little card and then glued the mini card to the card base in the center of the 5 1/4 x 4 DSP piece. When folded fits a regular envelope.

For the easel part I cut white 2 1/4 x 1 stamped a sentiment and glued it on a piece of Melon Mambo  2 1/2 x 1 1/4 and this piece was put in the center of the small fold with dimensionals and this is where the mini card is placed to keep it open. I hope you love it as much as I do it was a fun card to make and not at all hard.

What a great card, Tina! And I'm laughing at the fact that 3 of the 4 of us this month chose the Awesome Otter for our stamp set! It's such a cute set and I know I'll be using it a lot :)
