Leafy Magic Window

Our NZ craftycardmakers group swap was for a magic window card  based on a construction tutorial from YouTube.
If I made it again I would make it longer so that it ended up better fitting a standard C6 envelope.
The card is covered and lined with patterned paper.  Leaves are cut from snippets of card, inked (DistressInks) and arranged so they form an arrangement behind the centre circle topper.  Circles are layered, and the black one finger-edged with Opal Dust.
A message is written on the left-hand opening panel inside the card.

Here in NZ it's autumn.

Circle diecuts: Spellbinders
Leaves dies: Sizzix
Sentiment stamp (outside):
Sentiment stamp (inside)
Also: gold pen, Opal Dust, Distress Inks, sequins,
patterned paper.

Shared on challenges:


As you open the card the mechanism opens the aperture and reveals the message.

I love Autumn cards. This is beautiful. The leaves are great.

We are setting record high heat for the past 3 days and it's not even spring yet. We are suppose to get some relief next week. Pollen is everywhere so we're hoping for some rain to wash it out of the trees and air for a couple of days. [Bunny] said...
