Here is my next new card shape.
A Magic Window Card
to spotlight my current
Butterfly Challenge #23
Butterflies + V is for Valentine.
I found various tutorials /names for this
design of card and the one I liked the most
and have followed is by
The pink /white heart design paper is
Me to you With love.
Embossing folder is Spellbinders Mystic (A) side.
Silver /Crystal heart and gems from my stash.
Oddments of red card stock in my snippets folder.
Words generated and printed on computer.
Here you can see the shutter mechanism
start to be revealed as the card is opened.
(sorry camera decided to have a yellow hissy fit )
Opened up a bit more to reveal the secret message.
Now fully opened.
Message was a scrap of left over paper
which had been a magazine freebie.
Sizzix scallop circle die used to make the opening.
The cutout was then used on the front of the card to create the closure.
I loved making this card.
A bit fiddly to get the measurements deadly accurate
and the mechanism to open up as a whole diamond
but the result is well worth it.
Small butterfly is a tonic punch.
Larger one is a Woodware punch
as are both the heart punches.
Hope you can come on over and play.
