Birthday Wishes

It’s time for a new challenge at Fussy & Fancy Challenges and this time the challenge is…..

‘Fancy Folds’.

We are sponsored by Sweet Lilac Flowers and Marianne Design.

My card today is a Peek-A-Boo card. This is the first time I have made one of these and I followed the tutorial that my fellow team mate, Norma, has created for Splitcoaststampers which you will find here.


My image has been stamped onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair & Shoes – E47, E44, E42, E40; Dress, Apron & Hair Tie – YR68, YR65, YR61, BG75, BG72, BG70; Grass - YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91, YG25.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


Here’s how the card opens…


And when fully open the sentiment will replace the image.


The pretty paper I’ve used is from Kaisercraft and is part of their Marigold Collection. I’ve used various Marianne Design dies for the corners on the inside, the edge on the front panel, the leaf scroll & flowers. My holes and borders are Spellbinder dies.


Stamps: Tilda (Magnolia), Sentiment (computer generated)
Ink & Markers: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers 
Card: Early Espresso (Stampin’ Up), X-Press It Blending card
