Guest Designer Crystal Minkler with a fun Memory Dex Card!

 Hello there crafty friend! Crystal Minkler here back with my third guest designing post for The Greeting Farm! This month has flown by! Today, I'm super excited to share a really cute Memory Dex card that I created!! Do you ever have a fun and wild idea and then you make it?! Well, I had a fun idea for a Memory Dex card that opens like an actual card and I'm excited to share it with you all today.

I used the adorable Little Elves stamp set {sadly, I don't see this one in the shop} along with the tree stamp from the Fa La La stamp set. I die cut the Memory Dex card with a retired die in my stash. My snow for the card is a combination of scallops that I punch from white card stock and a stitched cloud die.
See all that fun glittery goodness?! It's so pretty in person. I used a ruler and a couple of Copic markers to create a "log cabin" design for the building. The cute little chimney is a piece of pattern paper. I stamped the Santa's Workshop sign with clear embossing ink and melted some white embossing powder. I then trimmed the signs and adhered them to the front of the building. Here's a list of the Copic markers I used for the front of this card:
Skin / Mouth ~ E00, E11, R14
Hair ~ Y06, YR31
Clothes ~ YG11, G14, C00, C2, N2, N5
Building ~ E27, E33
Windows ~ Y02, Y35
Tree ~ YG11, G24, G46, E21, E27
And then you open the card and get a sneak peek of Santa's Workshop! This was so much fun to create!
I combined images from the Little Elves stamp set and the Christmas Day digi set.
Santa's elves are making the toys and wrapping them in pretty packages.

I'll admit this card is very thick! It's kind of stuck on my Memory Dex holder, but I really love how it turned out! I think it would make a great card for a fellow Memory Dex cardmaker!
A close up of the glittery goodness!
I hope that I've inspired you to give those fun and wild ideas a try... you just may make something you really love!
