My eldest dd, Maria, turned 30 yesterday.
30 ?? Eek!!
How did that happen?
I wanted to make her birthday card a bit more special,
so I went for this Inside Tunnel design.
(video with step-by-step instructions, from the amazing Jennifer McGuire Ink)
Here's the inside tunnel view.
This creates a fabulous 3D area where you can place your stamps.
The little bird on the left is attached to the side with a narrow strip of acetate,
so he does a little flutter as you open the card.
I kept the front kind of plain,
using the squares that were cut from the inside,
with a mix of sentiments and some balloons.
Here's a close up of the inside, just to show all that 3D effect.
