Pile it on has a great fun folds challenge going on right now. And there is Make It Monday on Nichole’s blog! So ofcourse I HAD to go combine those two to get a fun fold MIM card!
To add to the confusion, I did a hard-disk reorg this week and found a bunch of my old artistic creations. Some of them were some ambigrams I made for friends and family. that got me even more inspired to try out a card that would look pretty even when turned upside down :O
Here is what I ended up with:
Have you noticed it yet? Yep! the photo is with the card upside down 😀 It looks good when turned the other way round as well! Take your pick 🙂
The central frame is from my PTI All booked Up set. I used Dawn’s MIM technique to make it larger than it was then concealed the overlap with a Martha Stewart doiley and a Basic Grey stitched brad.
This is a gate fold card with a small twist. I adhered the central frame to the card with removable adhesive. So if the recipient really wanted, they could adhere the frame to the left or the right side of the card as needed. That makes it a true ambigram-ish card don’t you think?
This card goes for:
- Pile it on Fun Folds challenge
- Papertrey Ink MIM #55
- Paperplay Something Old/Something New — an old inspiration (ambigrams) and a new technique (fun fold, larger frame from smaller one)
- PCJ Challenge #4 Anything Goes
And last but not least… here is an ambigram of my husband’s name that I made a long time ago. It looks the same when turned upside down.
Hope you enjoyed the post and thanks for dropping by!
