For Mia....

Mia is my grand daughter, she is 4 years old, soon to be 5 in November and even though she lives in Montreal, a days drive away, she keep us all on our toes. My husband will be driving through Montreal early next week so I made this card for him to take to her. She likes butterflies so, after casing the basic card from the new Holiday mini catalogue, I added them to the front for her.
It took me forever to figure out how I was going to make this so she could get the treats out of the card, I finally did after looking at several blogs to see how they were doing it. I eventually made a slider panel on the inside so it could be pulled out and the candy would fall out of the hole in the back. I made the slider by using strips of cardstock on 2 sides and the bottom that were popped up on strips from the sides of the dimensionals then the panel in front of the hole could slide in and out to retrieve the candy. This was my challenge for today.
I used Sweet Centers, Flight of the Butterfly and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets, Mambo Melon and Bermuda Bay inks and cardstock, Whisper White cardstock and Mambo Melon Polka Dotted Ribbon as well as the butterfly and the scalloped border punches, and the new Sweet Centers cups all from Stampin'Up.
Hope you're enjoying your long weekend!
Thanks for looking, Sharri
