Salty Glimmers and Scenic Stamping - by Judy Jackson

As you can see, there are three pictures to show you how this card opens. This first view shows you the full card with the focal image closed.

You can see the residue of the salt on the glimmery background. This is such a fun technique to do. You never know exactly how the background will look when you are finished. A torn piece of card stock is the anchor behind the focal image and it is attached with two metallic copper brads. These brads are fastened to the background papers before those papers are adhered to the full card. That way no parts of the brads show on the inside of the card.
When you fold down the bottom edge of the focal image you complete the scene and you are able to view the man in the canoe rowing in the stream.
When the next flap is lifted up the greeting or tiny message about the scene is exposed. The rest of the card opens up for a greeting on the inside of the traditional A2 sized card.
The focal image part of the card was fun to create. It is sort of a flip flap card with a different orientation.
Lots of layers help to complete of this card.
Stamp credits are from Stampin' Up, and Stampscapes. I hope you have had a wonderful January -- for me I am tired of cold and snow. I can only hope for a quick and WARM spring!
Have a great day!
