It's hard to believe it's week 2 in May already. The Kentucky Derby is behind us.
That being said...
Mary is our hostess this week and she picked some beautiful colors. Lemon Lime Twist, and Melon Mambo with a splash of black and a side of Mother's Day. Unfortunately, I only had black, and I have sworn off buying more card stock until I've downsized my stash/hoard depending on whether you are talking to me or my husband, you can relate right?
I've been seeing the impossible card floating around on the Internet and had to give it a try.
Yellowrose46 did this card:https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/g...866069?cat=fav
And it lead me to a wonderful tutorial for this card. Stop by her gallery and leave her a comment and try the tutorial.
My card stock is 5 1/2 square and it is in a packet of pattern paper made by recollections Sold at Michaels. The colored card stock is made by Arvy and was bought in bulk by the ream and the colors are neon green and melon. I also used a corner rounder.
Record player is MMR, adapter and record are by VLV
Happy Mother's Day is a dieVersion
Black memories and Versa fine
Copic R32, YR13
Brother Scan N Cut2 (I've always wanted a brother and now I have one and he takes care of me, lol).
I cut everything else with the SNC, record and record player stamped images.
The record is a circle shape (The record was made from a 4" and 1" circle), u Rock and 4 the record Was cut using the abc patterns on the machine and I welded them. The adapter I scanned, saved, resized and cut in/out function on black paper. .

Oh my, Tonda, this is a remarkable creation! I'm not familiar with the "impossible card" but nevertheless I am in awe of the detail and dimension you achieved for this amazing record player. Fabulous Mother's Day card!

Oh my goodness Tonda, you have taken this card style to the next level! This is simply amazing. I love the glimpse back into the past with the record player and vinyl record, and the colours really fit the retro theme too. Awesome!
