I was able to combine 2 Splitcoast challenges with this card…the Technique (TLC690 -make a doodled frame) & the Clean & Simple (CAS481 – teacher or grad card). 

While I was pondering the doodled frame, I thought hmmm..I could make the greeting look like a chalkboard & white emboss the greeting. Then doodle a frame on it & around it.

After I white embossed the greeting & die cut it, I used the white pen to doodle the inside frame & the black pen to doodle the frame outside. The teacher tools were colored & fussy cut. The white hearts are part of the greeting on the inside & I inked just them & stamped them. I didn’t want to heat emboss them, so I used the white paint pen to make them stand out more.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

I used the lovely  Zinnia image for my card today. After stamping & coloring, I fussy cut the 3 flowers & leaves.  The black strip was die cut & the flowers arranged around & over it. I only used part of the original greeting…the You part was just too large to fit in the space. So to make the you die, I used part of the Rejoice die  & trimmed away the rest. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

When I saw the technique challenge on Splitcoast (TLC676) was a fancy fold, the first thing I thought was “it’s gonna be trouble”. I was right. But at least I had resigned myself to that fact going in. And it was really only trouble for a few reasons…

1. I also decided I HAD to give the Gilded Faux Silk another try (first time was horrible). It made the sliding top really stiff & hard to fold.
2. My measurements were a little different so I had to reverse engineer it. Sheesh! Will I never learn?
3. I keep getting sucked into the bottomless pit of hubby’s plumbing reconfigurations. Not only has he acquired every plumbing tool known to man, he also constantly borrows MY crafting tools. Apparently, my tools are better than his tools, lol. And I have to help him reengineer the problem. (He’s NOT a plumber..he’s not even particularly mechanically inclined, lol.)

So..the gilded faux silk turned out better this time, probably because I needed snowflakes & blue & that looks good together. The fold finally cooperated. But then a fourth problem..silver & fancy folds are very HARD to photograph. It is what it is & here it is.

And here’s a look at the inside. I went simple since the front was an engineering feat!
