Today I want to show you card #4 in the series Marianne Design designer of the month. It’s already the last card in these series, time flies when you are having fun:-) I had lots of fun working on these projects, I hope you like them!

With the trees and the village I immediately thought of a 3D card, these are so much fun to make. This card can also be folded flat so it fits in an envelope.

First I cut two cards, 15 x 21 cm. (Score at 3 cm. on both sides)
And yet two strips: one bar of 3 x 17 (score at cm. 1 on both sides.) And 1 strip of 3 x 19 (score 2 cm. on both sides..

From patterned paper, I cut two squares slightly smaller than the card at I cut a square out of the middle, I distressed the edges. Then I taped it to the card.
With a little mat I have cut out a square out of the middle to form a frame.
The other square I glued on the other card.

I have a square cut out of white paper and embossed this with the forest design folder.

Then I applied VersaColor Ink in 3 different color with a sponge in a circular motion. Because of the different layers, you get a super nice depth effect.

I then taped it on the card, both cards are now almost done.

I cut the trees and houses, the houses I taped with a post-it and then inked them to keep the roofs tops white. Then I taped them in front of and behind the strips.

I glued the strips in the rear card and on the front card I have pasted a row of trees and then the card can also be put together.

This is really something you have to try, it’s so much fun to make!

Happy Crafting!
