I have had this idea on my to do list for a long time.
Our Stampin' Up Impressions magazine featured this fabulous folding card last month.
And Crafters Anonymous have a lift the flap challenge, this fortnight too.
(I think this qualifies as a lift the flap kind of card).
So finally, I created my own Never Ending Card.
This is the outside of the card. I kept the colours simple to start with Pear Pizzazz and Marina Mist on whisper white, using the "Fox and Friends" and "Party this way" stamp sets throughout all the layers of the card for continuity (to make it seem never ending).
I've taken a photo to try and show you how it opens up in the middle and reveals the next layer of card.
You could add your sentiment to this layer, or the last layer, or both.
Perhaps, you could add some story lines and make it like a never ending book....
...and then Mr Turtle said to Mr Lion "are you going to the birthday party too"? (or perhaps not).
Or perhaps a final flap for writing your message on.
Its not too late, I can add a punched out shape, which lifts up on one of those balloons.
Wouldn't it be cute if the balloons lifted up to reveal a written messages underneath?
Here's a top shot to show you that by opening the inside of the final layer, we have returned to the front of the card again.
Kids especially love this kind of card as it just keeps opening up in the centre and goes 'round and 'round, until you are finished playing with it. Which may be never...
