Something Old for Digi Haven

Today begins a new fortnight challenge at Digi Haven
Our theme is for this challenge...
The Design Team had fun playing with the toy images from our sponsor - Floppy Latte
You can find them under this section - All Things for Babies/Children
My Design Team card for this challenge is this moving parts card...
I have to admit that I have been making this type of card for at least 20 years
I just don't know what they call it now days... back in the day, I don't even know if it had a name?
Maybe someone can enlighten me!
I made a BABY BOY card
If you pull on the right hand side of the card, the message swings up from the inside

The is a very easy card to make and a lot of FUN to give to someone too!
Let me know if you would be interested in a tutorial

8 x 8 paper pad by October Afternoon - Farmhouse
I printed the images onto a Vanilla cardstock and used Parchment ink to cover the images
This came out really nice and evenly colored - it photographed a little more pink than it really is
I added a bit of color to the images using my Copic markers in BG34, E71, R22, Y17
The images are cut out and layered for depth
I finished the card with patterned paper on the ends, a button and ribbon
I hope you enjoyed my card today - make sure to check out the rest of the Design Teams cards
A whole lot of wonderful creations, inspiration and sharing going on
I invite you to play along with us this challenge - we have two sponsors

Floppy Latte ($6 gift certificate)
Fitztown will also be sponsoring a prize of 3 digi images from their new store
Thanks for stopping by today - Catch the Frenzy! - Karen
