Happily Ever After - MMSC4

It's time for the weekly Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge . . . woohoo!

My entry this week is entitled "Happily Ever After". This week I've made an aperture card, or a card with an opening, as well as a gift card holder! I used my nesties to make my opening in the front of the card, then attached my main image to the inside of the card, which partially conceals the surpise gift inside. Neat, huh?

My feature is a papertole image layered 4+ times to pop it right out of the window! It is detailed with dimensional glaze, glitter and a couple of brads for hubcaps!

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge this week is to use a frame, so to complete both of these challenges, I diecut an intricate frame from vellum which is attached to the front of the window. It's coated with glaze and detailed with glitter, though it's a little hard to see in these pix.

All of my DP is by SEI & the shiny heart accents were created with some vellum stickers by Stickopotamus, trimmed down & attached to shiny metallic cardstock. Inside I created a super easy hinged flap by scoring and folding about 1/4" and attaching with a strong adhesive, my fave is ZipDry. Everything is sewn together with white cotton thread and a simple straight stitch on my sewing machine.

Now I just need a wedding to go to! LOL Let me know what you think!

Look at the great inspiration from the rest of the Midnight Madness team then try this sketch yourself! There are some terrific prizes up for grabs! Trust me . . . you don't wanna miss it!

Keep Smiling!
