Water Inspired

Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a fabulous theme of Water Inspired which was picked by the lovely Amanda.

Another of those cards that lays flat so makes it easier for posting but this one has wndows. This is similar to a card we made in my class last week, (gave the other away before I took a photo) so decided to make another for the FSC challenge. The theme today makes for a great man’s card so will be going into my future card box. Which incidentally I haven’t shown yet … will try to take photos next week and post.

Sideways on view of the card with the windows open. As you can see for the inside windows I made two pockets for little tags to be added. The other pic is how the card looks when fully opened.

The middle band on the cardstock was masked off before being inked, stenciled and stamped.

This last pic is how everything looks when folded flat to go into an envelope.

Added a little digital collaging with my graphics program around the edges.

    How fab this is! I love cards with a difference and this is certainly different. The idea of making the swinging front flaps into tag holders is genius! Brilliant! Have a great week Shirl. Chris xxx

    Hi Shirl…The folding box card is ingenious! And the tag holders inside the flaps are a really nice touch. The tall ship stamp brings back great memories for me. A really great man’s card!
