MOOOOOVE it!


I made this card a while back. I was testing out a fold that I wanted to try for a swap I joined, hosted by the wonderful Paola (SAMA on SCS).

For this card, i used a ribbon slide so that the card slides in and out of its "holder". The original tutorial called for a different size, but I tweaked it just a tad so that its closer to A2 size, with a bit of the inside card sticking out, so the recipient has an idea they should pull it.

I used a PTI set - Boards & Beams, which i JUST HAD to have after I saw a card made by the VERY talented Sandra. Her blog, appropriately named Paper Funtastics!


I used copics to color up theimage, SU! cardstock and ribbon, K&Co PP & cut out the house image and glued onto the base.

I also have a little holiday cheer for you - see the sidebar for a little puppy love.... that's our little ROCKSTAR!
