The Never Ending Card....

Wait til you see this.... I found a tutorial on how to make a "never-ending" card and I went a little wacky with it. I figured out all the dimensions needed to mat every square and rectangle so that I could make it pop a little more (even though this beautiful designer paper from the La Paperie pad by My Mind's Eye is fine on its own). Yeah, it took a while but I like how it turned out. I used these cute Japanese doll stamps and a pixie stamp from Stamping Bella to add a little extra interest. The "magical" sentiment is also from Stamping Bella. The "Happy Birthday" is a Stampendous stamp.

So, what you'll see in this next four frames is the same card as it is opened. Each time it is opened, a new scene appears. After the fourth opening, it loops back to the beginning and so on. It is quite the magical card. Click on the word "tutorial" above to find the directions compiled by a Stampin Up demonstrator named Dawn.

that's so cool! Have you ever played with a Jacob's Ladder? For some reason it reminds me of that...even at my age I can play with one of those for hours, so whoever gets this will have so much fun with it!!!!
