Default DEC11VSNK ~ Saturday, Dec 10th ~ 6pm EST ~ Up Telescope!

Title: Up Telescope!
Hostess: Cindy, scrapcollectr57
Keyword: DEC11VSNK
Day/Date: Saturday, Dec 10th
Time: 6:00pm EST

I know the term is really "Up periscope" but in this challenge, I'm taking creative license and using it to refer to telescopes. I love making interactive cards and a card that swivels open to reveal more designs and a hidden sentiment really fits my bill!

My challenge is……for you to make a winter themed card or project using the telescoping technique as your inspiration! Beate put together a wonderful tutorial HERE if you'd like a little help but I can break it down for you into the following easy steps: Gather three different sized circles. (Scalloped circles are cool, too.) Fill them with your designs (I like to put a sentiment in the largest circle). Then attach the smallest circle to the medium sized circle with a brad, then attach the medium one to the largest one with a brad. You should be able to swivel them closed when you're done. I chose to add mine to an easel card so that it's easier to display but that's just an option you can add, not required.

Let's have some fun with this!!

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday Dec 12th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, DEC11VSNK , when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure you layout is seen.

Oh what a cutie! Love the sample. I hope to play along with this challenge tomorrow. We just got a 'surprise' new TV delivery, so I now have to clean the place I've been neglecting. I'll be around, just busy.

Not sure if it makes a difference in participation but this challenge is missing from the Master Thread. I do plan to try this before the weekend is over. I can only play after 10:00 PM Pacific Time.
