whimsical wednesdays

happy wednesday :) this week our challenge over at WW is "fun with folds". that is to make a card other than shaped or A2 type. 
i decided to make 2 cards for this challenge.
the first is called a pop~up stage card. i found it on splitcoaststampers. instead of me trying to explain myself just click ~>here<~ and you will get the tutorial from kim score.
 it looks a little intimidating but i swear its super~duper easy, otherwise i wouldnt have made one ;)
                                                             the front /closed
 slide the band off to open 

                                                                       a top view
                                 oh, make sure if you use sparkly glue stuff,wait until it dries completely
                                 before you close this . trust me! ( a not out of the ordinary duh moment                                                                       for  me lol)                     
details: my cricut and winterwoodland cartridge.( see how i utilized the negative cut for the deer on the next card)
 MS doily lace punch, SU stamp, liquid applique, stickles, colorbox fluid chalk
memorybox paper and SU card base (handsome hunter)

now for my 2nd card i made a Z fold card. mary over at cardztv ( theres a link on my sidebar) has awesome video tutorials on this plus other fold cards. be sure to check her out if you havent yet. thank you mary!

                                                               front of card
                                                          see how the top looks like a z
remember i told ya i used the negative cut from the reindeer

the "inside" of the card where you can write something personal

details: my cricut and winterwoodland  (deer, tag and seasons greetings) and jasmine (corners) cartridges
sizzix and marvy punch (snowflakes), SU stamped sentiment
rhinestone, stickles and colorbox fluid chalk.
paper sei card base SU (handsome hunter)

Both of your cards are fantastic. The first one is so have your very own winter wonderland going. It does look very intimidating. I have a hop this weekend and I think this will be perfect for it. Love the other card too and how you used the negative for the deer. Just perfect choice of cards for this challenge Shelly. Hugs!

I almost forgot that I had to comment on both cards in the same post since they are both on one post. Ina any case, that scene on the inside of the first card...stunning! Love the dimension & uniqueness.
Absolutely brilliant!!!
