When I see a card or craft idea in a magazine I really like, I tear out the page and put it in my Idea Book. The book is nothing special to look at. Just an old 3 ring binder our daughter used for school in the 5th grade. The outside is plain green with her name scrawled in big silver letters. There is a big strip of paper stuck on the back from some old sticker she tore off of it. But on the inside it is a thing of beauty for the novice crafter. It is full of ideas from crafting magazines, Martha Stewart and images from the internet.
I pulled out a page from it this weekend that had been calling my name since March of 2011. The idea was featured in Card Maker Magazinewhich is a bimonthly publication and an awesome wealth of ideas.
The card features the Candles on Your Cake set by Gina K. Designs and a clever idea for a slide surprise. You could probably play around with the sizes for the card base and the stamps for the featured layer. However, you will definitely want a eyelet for the slide tag, dimensional stickers to keep the slide from flopping around inside the card and a Word Window punch from Stampin’ Up if you have one. Enjoy!
