My DT (PDS)posting!

Today is my DT posting for Pixie Dust Studio , and I'm showcasing Swimming Dolly and you can get her here from the Studio.  This was totally a new style card I tried and it's alot bigger too, it is a 6 x 6 gate fold card.  After several attempts it ended up looking like this, this is actually a 6 x 12 sheet of card stock and I scored it at 3" x 9" and to make the opening  I taped my Spellbinder die  inside the middle closed the two flaps on the front and ran it through my Big Shot.   Because I already had my designer papers on my solid card stock, I don't think I would add my designer paper if I did it again  it was sort of thick trying to get it to budge through the Big Shot.  The designer papers are from American Crafts, the flip flops, beach ball and bucket/shovel are from Life's a Beach cricut cartridge cut at 2", I used Spectrum Noir and copic markers, stickles, glossy accents, Spellbinder die, sun (Hero Arts), Peachy Keen stamps, sentiment from Dorcerela Stamps (Summertime) and Martha Stewart border punch.

  21. Wow, Shirl...this card turned out really stunning! I really like how you did the gatefold window with your Spellbinders...neato! I just recently learned this technique too, and hopefully I'll get a chance to try it too. So much time & thought went into creating this card and it really shows! Love the glossy accents on the innter tube and all the Cricut embellishments!
