it's been a while, but have I got a special card to show you.
This card was inspired by the lovely Jessica Williams over at The Paper Caper. Click HERE to see her gorgeous card that I have been just champing at the bit to CASE. I was actually going to copy her whole card, because I absolutely love it. But then a funny thing happened ( more on that later). As you can see I didn't copy it exactly, BUT I did copy quite a few elements of Jessica's awesome card, especially using the Beautiful Branches thinlets for the coral!
OK, so onto the funny thing that happened. I happened to come across an interactive/moving card tutorial with accompanying video (Awesome! My kind of tutorial) on the wonderful France Martin's blog, Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie. France also includes all written measurements and dimensions on her blog as well as in the video tutorial.Click HERE to see the tutorial and France's card. France calls it a peek-a-boo card. The minute I saw the tutorial I knew I had to make a card with the Seaside Shore stamp set. I have seen lots of cards using this stamp set on pinterest that feature a porthole and I just had to make the coral like Jessica Williams did, so my card was born.
As you can see something happens when you open the card.
There is a panel that moves across and it reveals the sentiment. How amazing is that? I just love it!
Here's a close up of the sentiment and my attempt at drawing seagulls....the top one is a bit on the dodgy side lol
A couple of extra close up photos to show some more details.
The fabulous coral!
The sentiment attached to some kitchen string I looped and knotted, no fancy knots here my friends!!!
So that's my card. What do you think?
Don't forget to pop over and see Jessica William's card and France Martin's easy to follow video tutorial for the peek-a-boo card and the birthday card she made using the tutorial.
Don't forget to leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Cheers Donna :)
