Made it Monday #9 - One of those...

Man cards!

Hello and Happy Monday.

Firstly my apologies for the lack of posts this last week.  Emily was off school poorly all week and I really didn't feel 100% either, and didn't feel at all like crafting.

We ended the week though on a good note, in that we got a new car, a Nissan Rogue.  All bells and whistles that I now have to get used too, but it's lovely to drive.

Anyways, I had a quick visit to the craft room this morning and made a card.  I have used the wonderful new realease of Twiggy and Toots, it's available for pre-order now!

This lovely scene is a pre-coloured topper from the collection.  I printed it 4 times and then used the Spellbinders Labels 8 dies to make up the pyramid card.

All the edges of all the layers were inked with CTMH Crystal Blue ink.

For the inside I used the same papers and a message panel.  Adding the tree for more interest.

The layers of the pyramid have been place on foam tape to add some depth and a little ribbon to the base layer, along with some sequins which have been topped with Flourish with a Bling Pearl dots in Teal.

To finish off the front I couldn't resist adding these fun ticket sentiments.

An effective, yet quick card.

I am entering this creation in the following challenges.
