So, in case you haven't heard, there is a brilliant new challenge out there that started on January 10 - Twofer Card Challenge. It's the brainchild of Darnell Krauss of djkardcreations.com. I love the way Darnell's brain works, and this awesome idea is so Darnell. The Design Team is loaded with awesomeness, and the idea is to use the same stamps/dies to come up with two totally different cards. It is meant to really challenge yourself to increase your creativity, stretch your brain, your stamps, your dies, and to increase your stash of cards. FANTASTIC!!!!
I work in a Pre-K through 8 school as a librarian. I am so often frustrated by the lack of ability in children of all ages to follow directions. Well, guess what - I did not follow directions here and I am truly humbled. The thing I didn't do (because I skimmed the directions because I wanted to get to creating), was use a different style for the second card. I stamped, embossed and die cut a bunch of the same elements, and made 2 cards. I should have read more carefully, but that 's OK. I know now, and I am submitting my cards anyway! I LOVE them. I used two other challenges to create my Two-fer. I used the colors for Color Throwdown ctd476 (I LOVE these colors), and I used the CAS(E) this sketch #255 for the layout. I flipped it for one, and not the other.
I am SO excited about this challenge. I'm screaming in at the end, but I hope to play it a lot. Darnell, I promise I will follow the directions next time, and I will be nicer to my students who don't follow directions.
This card was inspired by Color Throwdown 476 colors, and the CTS Sketch.

I also flipped the CAS(E) This Sketch #255 to the left side for this one.
