Another month and another Round Robin Card Challenge at Swirlydoos. Paulien has given us some great twists this month - create a peek a boo or slide/pull out element, use some sort of frame and metal foil.
So I decided to make a telescoping card, I have not made one for a while, but what colours? I felt like doing something different which fitted in very nicely with the curent Fashionable Stamping Challenge, which is to use red/black/brown.
It is difficult to photograph this card in action but here goes! As you pull the ribbon at the top the three elements pull out into a hanging card.
I love this rose stamp from Stampin Up and used the NeoColour II wax watercolour crayons to paint it. I am just loving these - they can be as bright or as pale as you wish. I used my Nestabilities Scallop and Circle Dies, so as you can imagine the card is quite small.
And the card .... it is for my Aunt (and Godmother) who celebrates a major birthday at the end of this month - I may have to send instructions on how to open it though!
Do pop over to the Fashionable Stamping Challenge page HERE as there are some beautiful DT pieces and some fabulous submissions from members.
Thanks for looking x
