Time to sit back and take a few breaths. After I found this Designed 2 Delight digi I was obsessed with coloring it and somehow turning it into a 3-D look. At first I was going to do a diorama, but as I thought of the overall layout I nixed that idea and instead went for this folding frame card. The tutorial I watched was for a different size card , I wanted my card to be 5.5 x 5.5 so I did my own layout - if you want to see measurements and how it was done there is a picture tutorial here .
This was a lot of fun to create, I have ideas for several more cards using this fold and different backgrounds. It will for sure get mailed to a special family member for Christmas. The front of the card is in the next picture here.

(Moment of silence) oh Sherry....now I understand. Your fussy cutting was certainly worth every moment you spent crafting this beauty! The deep colors and dimension are gorgeous. Love the deckled frame and lovely skyline. Love every inch. You my friend are incredibly gifted! Lymi, hugs....

As amazing as this looks now, I bet it is even more so IRL! Mercy,this is just stunning and your coloring is over the top! I can see why you needed to concentrate on all of your fussy cutting last night instead of goofing off in the gallery! I hope that whoever receives this appreciates the love and work that went into creating this keepsake. Awesome job, Kush!
