Welcome back to the bi-weekly Cardz 4 Galz challenge # 220. Our host, Billie A, picked Use Some Green for the theme. When you finish here, please visit the challenge site to see what the rest of the very talented design team members created. Then, don’t forget to upload your creations to our gallery. We look forward to seeing your creations there!

This week another coworker asked if I could make her daughter a stadium wave Fluffiest Friends birthday card. Turns out, her daughter’s favorite color is green. Perfect timing! You can see my previous wave card here.

Here’s my Fluffiest Friends stadium wave card:

Truly, if you can trim and score cardstock, you can create this card!

I’m also entering this card in the Creative Creases Challenge.

Once again, I used a video by Stamp with Tami for the directions. I followed her measurements and scoring lines to a T. This card is pretty darn easy and I could do the majority of this card without help, including scoring the base. I also knew the size of the cardstock for the wave mechanism is 8 by 7-3/4 inches and just used her scoring measurements. Then it’s just a matter of trimming on the 8-inch side in 1-inch increments. Tami’s video is easy to follow and she’s very open about this being a new-to-her fold. I am still amazed that she worked out the measurements and directions after watching a video by a Dutch card maker, and she did it without the help of translations.

Minor Changes to Tami’s Video:

While making and adjusting this version of the Stadium Wave Fluffiest Friends birthday card, there are a few changes I made or will make next time.

  • After coloring and adhering all these adorable Friends, I attached them to the wave mechanism. Then, I realized how ugly the backs of the critters looked. That’s when I cropped another set of critters using the die set. Next, I had to carefully trim as necessary to adhere the white cardstock to the back of the colored critters.

Before and After:

  • It is necessary to adhere the white cardstock on the inside before adhering the wave mechanism. Thankfully, I remembered this detail in time.
  • Once again, I used ribbon instead of a belly band to keep the card closed. I have an idea for the next card, and if it works, I’ll update this post with a link to the new card.
  • This time, I adhered the ribbon before I adhered the white cardstock on the inside. I only had the end of the roll of this faux suede ribbon, so I trimmed it in half and used tear & tape to adhere the ends under the white cardstock.
  • I used more of the tabs than just the first two critters. The tabs measure 1/4 by 1 inch and raise the critters above the next wave.
  • This wave card definitely has more of an impact when opened from the backside of the card. Next time, I will make the card so that it opens down, if that makes sense. I’ll be sure to update this post with a link to the new version of the card.
  • Tami didn’t use dimensionals, and I didn’t either. Even though both of my stadium wave cards will be hand-delivered, there’s already enough bulk. Dimensionals might make it difficult to fit inside a medium white envelope.

I hope you watch Tami’s video and create your own stadium wave card. It’s so much fun to create and looks amazing!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a Peachy Day!

New Online Exclusives are now available!

I’ve already ordered some of these products and have more on the way. I can’t wait to start playing with them! Take a look at just some of the new products available!

I love the script used for these sentiments. I’ve used the birthday one, and it fits so well on a landscape 5-1/2 by 4-1/4 inch card!

The stamps for these adorable critters are two sided stamps: the outline image is on one side and the animal is on the other. The sample card uses the animal stamp.

Personally, I think this background stamp is gorgeous! Don’t delay in ordering as it just came back in stock. I’ve got an order on its way to me, but this stamp might just be worth paying shipping for just this item.

I had previously ordered the natural polka dot ribbon, and now have the rest of the suite of products on the way. This suite would be suitable to masculine or feminine cards, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

Shopping in the current mini-catalog is a wonderful way to shop!
