New Year Blog Hop – Just Add Ink # 343

Image may contain: text

Happy New Year everyone – 2017….here we go!!

At Just Add Ink we always kick the year off with a Blog Hop!  The 2017 Blog Hop theme is “Pop Up or Interactive”   This is going to be a fun challenge and we hope you will join the challenge with us.

I decided to make an Interactive card – a Venetian Blind card.
This idea came from a card that my friend Kim gave me many years ago.  I have always looked at the card she gave me and treasured it and decided it was time for me to have a go at making one. So here it is……

Starts off with the blind closed………

Then as you pull the strings at each side of the card, the blind opens………

This card was fun and easy to make (once I worked it out).  It also has endless possibilities of what you could put behind your blind.

The Blog Hop is set up in a loop so it doesn’t matter where you start.  All you need to do to follow along, is click the “Next” Button at the end of each post and you will be taken to the next stop. Remember the Blog Hop also incorporates the Just Add Ink Challenge for this week. You can join in this week’s challenge by making a Pop Up or Interactive project.

So – hope that all makes sense…… we go, now it’s time for you to move onto the next JAI Design Team Member.  Just click on the button below to move onto Jan’s Blog.
