The chocolate chips in my life: crafts, grandkids, friends, family, scrapbooking, reading, stamping, Red Hats, thrifting, and I even get on my soapbox on occasion.

the Never Ending Card
After a week of grand kids I needed a break, so BFF and I decided to attend a stamping event, a small stamping event....there was a total of 4 stampers in attendance. One of the cards I made was this 'never ending' card. It appeared to be complicated, but really wasn't! I made this one for my granddaughter (who was visiting last week).
The card measures 5-1/2 X 5-1/2". I used 2 pieces of double sided paper...and that is really all you need. Side one is the light blue design, and the light green is the reverse. I glued on some coordinating papers to dress it up for my granddaughter.
the first opening, open in direction of arrow
For the inside I used rub-ons and some printed words. I also used the arrows so she'd know how to open it.
After you open this one you are back at the card front. I didn't think I'd ever make it again....but I know I will. It really is simple. This is for my 9 year old Ava. You could even make it a mini scrapbook, the largest squares are a little over 2". If anyone wants the directions I will get them to you! Just email or leave a comment!
