Magic Window Birthday using Afternoon Daydream

I needed a special birthday card for a special friend who is also a demonstrator and whose favourite colours are Pool Party and Pink. So it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make one of those designs that are on my  "must do One Day" list ( a very long list!) My thanks go to Anna at Annas Art  for her great blog and pictures. Annasart Card with magic Window I was able to follow the pictures quite easily and she has a few other samples to look at also. I used Pool Party, Primrose Petals and Whisper White cardstock, and the papers and a few embellishments from the Afternoon Daydream Simply Scrappin Kit which has also been on my list of must use items. It wasn't difficult to make but did use a lot of cardstock. There is minimal stamping but you could certainly add more, and the Scrappin' Kit embellishments were so easy to use I will definitely be doing more of these. I used the Window Frame Collection Framelits to cut out the central window and then I was able to use those pieces on the envelope. The birthday stamp is from an old hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes  which I punched  with the 11/4" circle  punch. The front cover also uses the white Delicate Details Lace Tape, and a few punched butterflies in DSP and Vellum.
The opening mechanism is quite easy to make and very effective as it slides open to reveal the underlying message or image.
She loved it.
Any questions please email me.

I have to make a special card for our 25th Wedding Anniversary so I think this design may be a winner. Thanks for looking, Liz
