Recently, my oldest "baby" turned 18! She has been very grown up for a long time, but I still find it hard to believe she is an official adult.
I made this fun card with a diorama window inside for her special birthday:
This is the front. No window here!
There's the window!
And a top view, so you can see how it works.
This was surprisingly easy to do. Click here to grab my basic SVG file to get you started. For my card, I fancied up the window with a Penny Duncan Creations Shaplie file,(break the file, replace the plain rectangle with a shape of your choice, and join) and added some embossed layers and a shadow outline. I printed the inside sentiment, and added some extra color with a colored pencil. The sentiment on front was stamped, heat embossed and layered with more variations of Penny's Shaplie file, to co-ordinate with the inside.
I added a recycled bow, rescued from some packaging and tucked in my ribbon box. 5 minutes before giving it to Naomi, I decided it needed a little something else, so I added a button made from the printed paper. Of course, I didn't have time to snap a new photo, so you will have to use your imagination!
(The best thing about this card design is that it folds flat to fit in an A2 envelope!)
I hope you are all having a fantabulous day!
