Today I am participating in the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop group and our theme this week is “Wiper Cards.” I’ve only seen wiper cards on the horizontal, but this version of a wiper card is vertical. Be sure to check out the Roll Call at the bottom of this post so you can carry through and see the other creations of my talented stamping friends!
First, let’s check in because it’s been a hot minute. Who’s suffering from whiplash from this fast fall calendar? It’s December! I’m actually almost finished with my Christmas shopping and decorating, but behind in sharing Christmas projects with my crafting friends. Alas…if only we could craft all day and all night long. I love participating in Blog Hops (in case you haven’t noticed 😊) because they give me a reason to prioritize my Blog. I post projects on Instagram more regularly, so if you haven’t already, be sure to follow me there. That said, sometimes I feel like a card needs a little more attention, explanation, and directions — so I’ll post on here. I also pin my projects on Pinterest and share to my Facebook page. Lots of content everywhere, and no matter where you go to look to be inspired, I hope you follow me to add to your inspiration.
Here’s my Vertical Wiper Card:
This is the card closed. Then when you open, the “wiper” is activated and another bear pops up!
Do you see the polar bear in the sweater pop up!? SO cute! Here’s a look from above so you can see the mechanism:
To add a place to write a message and sign the card, I decorated the back.
The images are all cut from the Beary Christmas 12 x 12 designer series paper.
