Folded Box Card & Triangular Star Card for ICRC19

Hi! Two new cards to post today. I am entering both in the Indian Craft Room's July challenge. This month's challenge is very interesting. Make a card with fancy folds, but no easel cards. Hmm... lot of food for thought.

It was fun thinking up a card which fits the bill. I came across this card at Stamp with Heather and fell in love.  I found a great tutorial at Stampingvideos. I have tweaked the tutorial quite a bit, but the basic idea is from there.

From the moment I saw the card, I had the image of a window opening and closing. So that's what my card is like.

A closed window framed by pretty blossoms...

Open the doors...

To a birthday party waiting to happen!

Now for some close up shots...

Right window

Inside the room, hung with a birthday banner

A pile of presents and a yummy chocolate cake waiting to be cut!

The biggest challenge was working out the mechanism for the door. But after some trial and error I managed.

Now onto the second card.

I came across this triangular card tutorial at My Cards for You. For some reason I immediately thought of making a Black'n white card. The idea expanded to a card with music as the theme.

And this is the result!

I created the pattern paper using a free brush I had downloaded ages ago. The word 'ROCK' was created by simply cutting bit of black paper and mounting on foam pads. 

I cut out the star shape and added a patch of pink glitter on the paper below. The white circle is mounted with foam pads and the pink circle is stuck directly.

The card opens out into this.

And fully open, looks like this.

I am quite happy with both the cards and hope you like them too!
