Matryoshka Erin?

0 2 Comments

My friend Erin collects these matryoshka dolls, and so I went to her for a suggestion for a card.

She suggested that I do a gate fold that opens up, so that it could act like the dolls do, in that the heads come up, and in chatting with her, I thought about this swing top card that I had done long ago with the Hooligan’s paper pack.

So, this one swings up, and you can see another, smaller doll inside! Fun, right??

But, one thing I bet she didn’t expect, is to be the face on the doll! Wouldn’t this be so fun to use as a party invite?? (and it WAS just Erin’s 21st birthday, again)

I thought this was just so fun to do! I used the sketch from My Favorite Things for this card.

I hope you enjoyed this card! I am off to the beach tomorrow morning for my Retreat! I will have more stuff for you over the weekend!

Have a crafty day!
