Back at the Mash Up

It has been a while since I joined in with the Friday Mashup challenge, but with a 4 day weekend upon us I have time to do some creating and challenges.  

As you know I love doing the mashed up version of the challenge and this week is no different, thought it was a challenge as part of it was a tic tac toe challenge (pick any three elements that line up in a row from the grid), the second part of the challenge was a fancy fold card.

I chose to use neutrals, ribbons and flowers - which was a challenge as I so desperately wanted to add some colour to the flower!  I picked a piece of the newsprint DSP so that the pretty little butterfly was peeking out from behind the flower (again wanting to add some colour!).  I used Basic Grey as the neutral and kept it monochromatic.
The facy fold part of the card is that it is a telescoping card!  This is the first time I have made one of these and I was so happy with how it turned out, and how easy they are once you have things lined up. I knew the effect of the card had worked when I saw the expression on my daughter's face when I opened up the card!

Happy Stamping


  1. Monique, you did a FABULOUS job on this! I would have wanted to add color too...but even so, it is BEAUTIFUL! The newsprint dsp was a perfect touch! Thanks for hanging out with us at the Friday Mashup again!

  2. Great job Monique! This is a fabolous card! I got one of the telescoping card in a swap at convention and I have never given it a try. I will definetely make one. Thanks for joining at the Friday Mashup this week!
