One Crazy Stamper May Challenge

It's time for a brand new challenge on the One Crazy Stamper blog - and for May, it is "Anything Goes" - you can use any products you like, just no digi stamps, please!  I am sharing a square card with Bertha Big Mouth - she is one of the three new Big Mouth stamp sets from Art Impressions, and Lora has all three of them available in the OCS store.  I have a few photos to show how I've put her together, so scroll down for more info.  Here's my little sweetheart:
Here is what she'll look like when the recipient receives the card... she's not a small gal, as the card is 5 1/2" square.  Then you pull on the tab, and...

her mouth opens to show her rather toothy grin.  The inside sentiment is "It's your birthday.  Smile while you still have teeth!"

After colouring the stamped image of Bertha with Copics, you use the die that is included with the set to cut out her chin, and along the seam of her lips.  This little section that you cut out, is then glued onto a pull tab where you've stamped and cut out her teeth as shown below:

I've glued a 1 1/2" square of black paper onto my base, under where her mouth will be, and have cut two slits that the pull tab will be threaded through.

After threading the pull tab through the slits, I glued the white mat onto my card base. I put pop dots on the back of Bertha, being sure to leave the area under her chin open so the pull tab can move, and then she was positioned over the chin and adhered.

In this closeup, you can see how her chin and lower lip are just a little lower than the rest of her.

And here she is with the tab pulled down about 1/2".  There are a few steps involved in putting the Big Mouths together - but they're easy to do.  Check out what the rest of the One Crazy Stamper Design Team has to share with you today on the OCS blog!
