Octopus Bridge Card

Hello my crafty friend! I’m back today with one of the most fun cards I’ve made in a while! It’s a double-bridge pendulum card. (That sounds complicated, doesn’t it?) It’s not bad, promise. And I have a video that will walk you through the whole thing…

I used the Caffeinated Octopus stamp set from The Rabbit Hole Designs for this card. Love it! She’s part of a whole line of java loving critters. Go check them out!

I cut and scored the three layers of the card base as follows:

  • Back Layer 4 1/4″ x 11″ (score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″)
  • Middle Layer 3 1/4″ x 11″ (score at 4 3/8″ and 7 1/8″)
  • Top Layer 2 1/4″ x 11″ (score at 5 1/2″ and 8 1/4″)

So what do you think of it? Fun, right?! In the video I promised a link to the spinner disks and this white pen, my new favorite! (Thanks again Niccole!) Let me know if you have any questions 🙂 And don’t forget to head over to The Rabbit Hole Designs for lots more inspiration and to see how to qualify for some of those fun prize packs they’re giving away to celebrate their grand opening!
