A Springtime Birthday Card

Morning all. Today is my DH's birthday. I wanted to make a special springtime-theme card for him and this is what I came up with. It took a while to make but at the end it was worth the effort.

The card folds out to a 3D garden scene with Edwin sitting on a tree trunk. I have made this type of cards before with Christmas scenes, very pretty I think LOL. I will make some more and post them later.

I colored the images with Copic markers. Dies used here are Magnolia DooHickey dies. Designer paper are from Memory Box and Magnolia.

Hope you enjoy this visit.


I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Hi Katie, sorry I've been MIA. I've got some serious catching up to do, although you never really catch up...LOL. Fabulous card you've. Your DH is going to be happy to get this. Have never seen this style of card before. I love it--love the 3-D effect. Fabulous colouring of Edwin--he's my fave Edwin. Love the multiple Maggie images you used to create the fab scene. Terrific job you did on this card. I love it!

Looks awesome and one can see the amount of work that went into coloring and putting everything together! Though, the result is outstanding! Your DH will love this!
