Impossible Card and String Art Gone Viral!!!!

Wow!! This card technique has gone viral along with the string art technique!

Well you know what they say about curiosity and the cat? I think today I am a cat.

I tried out the Impossible Card, not as impossible as I thought. The first time I saw it was on Maymay Made it and she redirected it to Trimcraft and Mixed Up Crafts

Here is my version of this card using up some of our retiring items:

I decided that with Father’s Day coming up that I could use up some of my True Gentleman Suite items. Once I had the template down, it went together fairly quickly, the trickiest part is cutting the “L” shaped DSP and deciding on the greeting! I hope you will give it a try. Leave me a comment below if you would like me to feature this technique in one of my future video.

String Art Technique

As an early childhood educator, we were taught that it is the process not the product. I have introduced string art to my young students for a number of years ( if I tell you how many years, you might guess how old I am. LOL).

I saw this technique first introduced to me on Facebook  in one of those suggested posts. Imagine that! Facebook suggesting something crafty in my feed. Well I watched the video and was instantly taken, we have been playing with string for years! I never thought to use it in my card making. So, off I trotted down to my craft studio, to see what I could do to recreate this technique. Here is the end result:

This card was created using Brusho. Yellow, Gamboge and Brilliant Red. I used Flirty Flamingo to mat the flowers and the greeting is from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.

This card was created using Classic Stampin’ Ink. So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral. I used Calypso Coral to mat the flowers and the greeting is from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.

Creatively Yours,
