I recently just finished my bodybuilding experience, so I finally found some time for cards. I recently acquired Anna Griffin's Rocking Card Dies, but I really didn't know what to make with them. Inspiration struck when I found TGIF Challenges: Color Challenge. This week's color challenge was as follows:
I loved the simplicity of the color scheme. I didn't quite know how the set would come out, but a hope and a prayer later, I ended up with two cards.
The good news: The Rocking Card Dies are easy to use. Each card takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. A few quick passes, and assembly is a cinch. I do worry about longevity. On the second card, the weight seemed to be a bit more and it appeared as if the card was deflating a little. Not enough to ruin the effect, but I do wonder how the card will stand up over time. Still, it's such an interesting design, that I can't be upset with it. So here are the results:
All the details really pop. This card was fairly light so there wasn't any deflation to speak of. The second card, however, sort of deflated. It still largely kept it's form, but the weight of the mixed media (the button) really gave it a bit more than the structure could handle:
Still, I think I like the second card a bit more. It really has a style that feels uniquely it's own. And here are the cards in action:
Overall, I'm really happy with the Rocking Cards. I'm not sure if they'll become a staple, but for sheer diversity, they feel like a lot of fun. Thanks to TGIF Challenges for the color inspiration!
