Nothing is Impossible - Presenting an Impossible Card

Well - Sheila, a blog follower posted a comment on my Shuttle Card asking if I've heard of the Impossible Card. I think she did this to me before, she had wondered if I had made a bridge card.  I guess what Sheila wants, Sheila gets.  Presenting - the Impossible Card.

I researched YouTube and found that Dawn had created an awesome video.  It can be viewed HERE.  Please take the time to leave Dawn a comment thanking her for creating the video and sharing what she loves.

Of course.....you know I like layers. My first layer was 1/4" smaller, the DSP layer was 1/8" smaller than the first layer.

Sending Heartfelt Thoughts - Shutter Card

Connie Stewart is a well-known, talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I was inspired to create this card after watching her video HERE.  Please take the time to leave a comment on her video, she is so kind to share what she loves so freely.

I completely changed up the look of the card, thus changing many of the dimensions.  I LOVE layers! Follow Connie's video for the mechanism only. I highly suggest you use scrap cardstock and make this card up before using your precious Stampin' Up! cardstock.
