Penny Black TLC Blocks Card







 I colored up this darling little Penny Black image and made it into a card and thought to myself...UGLY layout....so....I set it aside until I was ready to start over LOL! I do that sometimes.

I pulled the whole thing all apart -- scrapped the card base and cut apart the image

Here is version #2!

I fussy cut the image and added it onto this really fun blocks card I have been wanting to make since I found this Youtube video!

I used this pretty pink and grey Fancy Pants Beloved 6x6 paper , and Penny Black T.L.C. image. Both are from Inspiration Emporium.

The hedgies are added on pop dots with a couple little heart sprigs and heart banners added for a little bit of extra 'sumthun, sumthun' in the background.  I forgot to take a picture of the back, but it has blocks of the Beloved paper on it too. You could easily decorate both sides!





You can look right through it!



I have used a 6x6 envelope and the card is actually about 4.5 x 5.5 ish I think...maybe not quite that big.


I hope you have enjoyed this fun fold Penny Black card today!

Oh, how cool! I've come across a couple of things lately I'd like to try. This is amazing how it folds up flat but opens up like building blocks. Fabulous!

Dot said...

AAAAHHHHH-dorable, Sue! Your coloring brought these little cuties to life, and this card will be treasured by its lucky recipient! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

Holy cow! I thought this was already pretty amazing, and then I saw it fold down and fit into an envelope??? Whoa! I did not see that coming! So creative! The colors and adorable hedgehogs work so nicely together and I adore those heart twigs in the background. I also enjoyed your write-up and how you admitted that your layout was ugly at first and that you had to re-vamp. Glad I'm not the only one who has to go back to square one sometimes. I'm glad you didn't give up because this is a fabulous piece! Thank you so much for sharing it with us at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
