Once a month we have a for fun challenge with a friends group called the Paper Pros. Raquel Mason set the theme for this month as "What's in a Name?" and challenged us to use a die set that started with the same letter as our first name. I decided to use the Knight and Dragon die set and actually get a jump (gasp!) on my Anniversary Card for (gasp!) OCTOBER!
The card is a very simple design. It measures 4.25" x 4.25" square when closed. I used the Knight die to cut a window into the front of the card and then assembled a bunch of knights from all white cardstock. I glued the knights into a collaged mosaic on the front of the card, cutting off partial knights where they extended off the edge. I then traced around all the pieces with a fine black pen.
Through the window you can see a silver knight, lined up perfectly with the opening. As the card opens that knight starts to move, attached to a platform from the Upsy Daisy Pop-up die set.
Once the card is open the silver knight stands on the ground in front of the card. I used my leftover knights to decorate the background plus added a greeting using Word Set 5 - Royalty.
It was fun to make my knights-a-plenty card. Plus it's nice to have an anniversary card all ready for my real-life knight come October.
