Welcome to the newest Cardz 4 Guyz challenge! Our host for challenge #345, Helen., chose Clean & Simple 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!

Here’s my (somewhat) CAS Playing in the Rain card:

If this layout looks familiar, I just posted a card to the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday challenge using the same layout. You can see that card here.

As with the other card, this Playing in the Rain card is combined with other challenges. Since it’s a fun fold, I will be entering it in the Creative Creases gallery.. I’ve also been introduced to a new-to-me challenge, but it’s completely up my alley, and that’s the Snippets Playground challenge. Since I use snippets, aka scraps or leftovers, frequently, I think this challenge will be incorporated quite regularly. The main idea of the challenge is to use scraps and identify them in the card or with a picture. Therefore, here’s my trio of snippets:

Here are the Creative Creases and Snippets Playground challenge logos:

Still Working on My Video Skills:

Instead of listing out the measurements and assembly instructions, I am including a video for this card. I appreciate your patience as I learn the best way to film videos. My nephew wants to help me edit the videos but I am not there yet. He’s great at it, as evidenced by the videos on his YouTube channel, Florida Railfan. If you, or someone you know, is into trains, please share his channel with them. However, he doesn’t know I am giving him a plug, so we can keep it our secret.

PLEASE NOTE: During the video I said that the card base needs to be scored at 4-1/4 and 2-1/4. That’s a mistake! It’s scored at 4-1/4 and 2-1/8 inches.

Here’s my video:
