Seven Hills Crafts February Challenge

A really interesting monthly challenge for February at Seven Hills Crafts, Fancy Folds - to use more than one fold on your card. This is definitely not something I do very often! After Googling a load of different card fold ideas that didn't jump out at me, I came across a shadow box card which I thought would be pretty effective with my amazing new-favourite Mama Elephant Space Bear stamps!

It was really tricky to photograph the finished card, but I've tried my best holding my daylight lamp with one hand and my phone in the other! Here's a slightly closer up view of the layers.

And one "just in case" to show that there is indeed more than one fold involved here!

The bears and planets are coloured with Promarkers and have Glossy Accents on them. The sentiments are heat embossed. And the background is blended with Distress Ink, with splatters of water and white paint. Here's a pretty similar background I made for a different card last week.

I actually haven't stopped using the Space Bears since they arrived last week, I absolutely love them! I was also pretty pleased with this card, also using a die from Mama Elephant Pizazz Pieces.
