It's Fussy and Fancy Time . . .

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 
Today's theme was chosen by our very talented Annie, and our theme is . . .


Here's my creation . . .
I decided to create a Double Z-Fold card and turn it into a
birthday card for my brother-in-law.
The design paper I've used is actually from a fun kids paper pack by Doodlebug Design called 'At the Zoo'.
Doodlebug - Paper Pad - 6
 and the dies I've used are:

Tutti Designs - Dies - Autumn Window
 Tutti Designs Happy and Birthday

Tutti Designs - Word Set - Happy
 Tutti Designs - Word Set - Birthday

Tutti Designs - Dotted Nesting Ovals
 I die cut TWO ovals ... one from White card stock and one from the same Rust card stock I used for my base card.  Then, I die cut my window from the white panel, did a little coloring on the ivy & pumpkins then attached it to the rust colored panel.  A little oxide ink around the edges softened the look.

Happy and Birthday were also cut twice.  Then overlaid to create a shadow effect.

  2. This is such a fun fold! Love the paper choices and the way you inset the die back into the background. It adds a fun detail without detracting from the design.

    Thank you for joining us at Fabrika Fantasy for our Autumn challenge.
