Theatre Box Card

I found a tutorial for making this card on the lovely Deb's blog and I knew it was just the card I needed for a special friend who was in need of a hug at that time. I spent so much time making the card that I didn't have time to take any photos before I needed to give it to her so the pictures below were taken by her (thank you, dear friend!) This is how the card looks when it's closed: and this is how it looks when it's open: and this is the back of the card which is really the only place to put a greeting: This card was really such fun to make and I would like to sincerely thank Deb for her idea and inspiration. I coloured the image with Copics but I'm sorry that I didn't make a note of the colours and decorated the petticoat and Tilda's tiara with my Copic Spica clear. It involved much use of the Nestie's and Big Shot and the papers are from the Basic Grey Porcelain Collection, MME Wild Asparagus Collection and the Papermania Exquisite Collection. I distressed all of the elements with Frayed Burlap Distress Inks and blinged up the flowers with stickles gold and stardust. I used my MS Doily Lace punch on the edgings for the back of the card and punched the hearts on the front from a Sizzix die and the Maidenhair Fern is from a Leon Em punch. I do hope you like it - I seem to be posting lots or not at all. Note to self - must do better! Thanks for stopping by!
