Theatre Card

Hi everyone,
This is another of my DT cards that I did for the Cupcakecrafting 4 day deal last week, featuring 'A Touch of Elegance'. This card was also shown on TV but I think Linda said it was another ladies, but it wasn't, it's mine.

 
I felt that the topper with the curtains lent itself to a theatre card, so that is what I decided to do. I thought it was going to be really difficult but it was alot easier than I expected. I printed a backing paper onto card and concertinaed(?) the sides, so that the front and sides were all in one. I used my Hougie Board to concertina the sides.
 

I put some strips across the inside of the top and bottom to fix the lady and curtains onto. I cut some urns and plants from black card using the Art Nouveau Cricut cartridge and fixed these onto the front of the card so that the aperture didn't look quite as bare. I printed a sentiment - 'Just for you' and cut this out in an oval shape and backed this on black card which was also cut into an oval shape but slightly larger than the sentiment. I coloured it with chalks to try and coordinate it with the backing paper. I think you can just see it in the photograph.
 
 
Thank you for popping over and taking a look. I appreciate it and your comments that you leave.
 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Glitternsparkle - Number 16 - Sentimental - http://glitternsparklechallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/
 
Have agood day.
