Addicted to Stamps & More! Make Your Mark #6

Hello all - so happy that you've stopped by to visit me today!  Today I've made a card using a digi image from Bugaboo Stamps.  I had made this for a different challenge last month when Bugaboo was sponsoring a couple of the Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenges - but then I wasn't crazy about it with the other ideas I had and left it sitting on my desk.  This week the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! is to use markers on your cards or creations and was the perfect excuse for me to finish coloring up Eggbert and make a birthday card.  I tried a different fold to my card this week (see below) - I took the photo above by hovering the camera over it so you could see what it looks like when the card is closed.  Here's a look at just the front panel of the card (as it is being opened): 
 I added some small pops of red on the letters and in the corners to break up the blue/green theme a bit. This leans a bit more toward the masculine genre - but with the red rhinestones it could also easily be a card that a lady (or girl) would enjoy. Here's a look at the inside:
I didn't like how the blue and green inside looked un-finished so I put another piece of white on the inside of the front.  I inked up the stamps with my markers.  The banner stamp also has the word "happy" on it but since I said that on the front I decided not to ink it up on the inside.  The white layers match up when the card is closed and provides an additional space for writing a message.  The overall finished size of the card is still a standard A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") - but with this folding it gives the illusion of being a square card. This way I can use this card for a male or female.  I like how it turned out.  Hope you do too!
Please go visit the Addicted to Stamps and More site and see what that other DT members have come up with this week for your inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by - I'm sure glad that you did. Til next time... hugs and happy crafting!
