oh, Lynn, this took so much time, but it was so much fun to play with this fold! Thanks for bringing these interesting techniques to us each week! This one has gotten me thinking pop-up!
I know I must be the last girl on the planet with these cute birds from Inkadinkadoo. Vicky Gould and Schrimcat both have made fantastic cards using these images! I just knew today was the day to ink them up! I used Basic Grey mellow group for all birds. The big guy was stamped over the 'All I have seen' quote from Emerson...it was a boo-boo from last fall...I am such a packrat...never throw anything out! The inks is ColorBox, lava black, dragonfly black, raven black...all the owls and words are embossed. The trees are from Artistic Outpost 'Farm' sheet...I inked them on GP white sc with TH di walnut stain and cut them apart to use in the scene. The edges of the trees are sponged with ChalkBox creamy brown and VersaMagic sea breeze. The card base is called Lenient, also from BG mellow..this is a fantastic cloud/sky paper. I added a bit of trim to the middle layer for texture and the green panel was bugged with the branches folder. I cut the upper part away to add to my dimensional effect. The birds and trees are popped on foam. The "U" is the Chelsea font from Ma Vinci's; the CAN is Starving Artistamp.
This is going in the mail to our dear Sam. He has some very tough courses this semester and I am sure he could use some encouragement! It's been a long time...but I still remember statistics!!! Thanks for your comments...I'm headed to the gallery now that mine is finished!

Oh Susan, the word is ..."fantastic"! Your son is going to get a big smile out of this! There is so much to look at and take in, and I certainly can see why it took so long for you... but well worth it! Love the pretty lacy addition... and love that you were able to reuse a boo boo! Don't you love when that works out! Great card! Missed you too GF!
