Lipstick Lady

Today's card is for my friend's daughter, Amy, who turns 17 at the weekend. She's a typical teenage girl - love dressing up and experimenting with make up. I have this old digi that is perfect for a make-up themed card...

I've used black  A4 card for the base, folded, then the front folded again - is this called a z fold?. The 'half front' is covered with some fabulous lips patterned paper from Trimcraft's  Bouffants and Broken Hearts range. The image is coloured with pro markers and mounted on a fancy square die. When the card is flat it covers the greeting inside.

Finally, I've added a greeting created in Publisher using Formal 365 font and some sparkly heart stickers as embellishments.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

A Gem of a Challenge Wk 1 - anything goes
The Paper Shelter #368 - use dies or punches
C R A F T Challenge #499 - anything goes
Moving Along With The Times #90 - anything goes
Watercooler Wednesday #206 - anything goes
As You Like It - fave shape or fold - I love the simplicity of this fold - it is easy to create (without templates) yet still has the wow factor.

Thanks for visiting
