A while ago my friend, Buffy, posted a card that she called an Impossible Card. Apparently it is based on a very cool card trick called Hypercard. Another Demonstrator, Dawn Griffith did a video on how to make this card. Buffy’s was the first I ever saw and I loved it. Now I see them all over so I had to try my hand at making one. If you look at Dawn’s web site she made an awesome video with instructions. Anyway the card is like an optical illusion. Here is what it looks like looking down at it.
Believe it or not, the card base is one piece that is cut in a few places and then twisted around.
To make this card I started with a base of Grapefruit Grove (4.25 x 5.5) and then scored it in half at 2 1/8″ with my Stampin’ Trimmer. Then I cut a line at the 2.75″ mark to the score line on one side. Flipped it around and cut two lines at 1″ to the score lines on each side so it looked like this (this example is in Whisper White):
Then you take the right side and just flip it around so the base looks like this:
Then all you do is decorate it.
I used the stamp set called Varied Vases. This set will be in the new Annual Catalog that comes out on June 1st. It as a matching punch! I used Grapefruit Grove and Highland Heather which are brand new ink colors coming out too! Grapefruit Grove is a new InColor and Highland Heather is a new color in the Subtle Collection. The Design Series Paper is called InColor 6″ X 6″. It comes in all the color families. I love that it is 6″ x 6″ paper.
Beautiful card, Susan! It works really well with that set, and I LOVE the colors you used. Very bright and cheery!
Amazing!! I love the colours and stamps you used. I really need to try out this ‘impossible’ card, it’s so unique
