Whimsy is essential- wiper card

Hello everyone!! I hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July weekend! I know I did it was great heading out to the river with my family..good times!!

Yesterday I had to get back to doing what I love the most...CRAFTING!! I wanted to make something different from a regular A2 card so this is what I came up with!

I got this cute stamp from The Greeting Farm on Friday and was sooo bummed that I couldn't color her right away! This little cutie is Elena from the wildsprouts! You may notice that she has two different faces, well I stamped two images with her and a Chelsea image for the second face.  I wanted to have two photos and I think they turned out soo cute!!
The sentiments are from K Andrews Positive thoughts stamp set and food for thought set. I have never used so many stamps on one card lol but I had so much fun making it!

Here is the card opened up
This is a wiper card and the little tag up top folds down when you fold in the sides and pops out when you pull the sides out! I love love love this card so get ready for LOTS more of them lol!! I also loved the idea of putting this cute character in a polaroid I made it in my gypsy and cut three of them before I got the perfect size! Dont Kristals stamps go perfect!!
Another view of the pop out part
I made a little polaroid to fit the sentiment inside
Close up of the Miss Elena posing for the camera! 
I was so happy with the way this looked I have 12 more polaroids cut out hehe waiting forGreeting Farm stamps!
This is how it looks as you are closing the card
Side view of the card closing I really need to start making videos it is soo much easier to show you on a video how this opens and closes! What do you think?

  • Greeting Farm- Elena and Chelsea stamps
  • K Andrew Food for thought and Positive thoughts stamps
