Toaster Hinge Card

I just learned a new trick from this week's SCS Technique Challenge called 'the hinged card'. I was so excited after watching this video by Wendy Weixler because I knew JUST the thing to try it out on! I just got these CUTE chipboard shapes from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection and thought it would be fun to have the toast 'popping' out of the toaster!

I adhered my toaster panel at the bottom instead of the top (as shown in the video) so that the toast popped out of the right end. :) The swirl from the bottom of the toaster was just doodled on.

I hid my brad in the front by covering it with a ribbon knot & added a standard card base to the back.

The sentiment is from Rubber Soul. :)

Isn't that just so much fun?!? I love it when my plans actually WORK! LOL! :)

And... here is the inside of my card using a little more Early Bird paper. See. I told you I'd be using this stuff like crazy. Get use to it. There will be more. ;)

Thanks for 'popping' by!!! :)
