Guest Desinger - Donna Phelan

Welcome to another "Guest Designer Friday!" Today I'm sharing a beautiful card created by the winner of the April Link Party...Donna Phelan of Crafting By the Beach. Donna not only created a gorgeous interactive card to share with us today, but also included a mini tutorial with LOTS of photos! Let's get right to it...Donna says,

"Good Morning!
I am sharing a little interactive card with you today.  I was inspired by Dawn's Stamping Thoughts, her Hubby designed this particular sketch.

Top Folding A-2 Card.
Black card base, 4 1/4 x 11 inches, scored at 5 1/2 inches.
White layering weight card stock, 4 1/8 inches x 5 1/4 inches
Polka Dot Designer Paper, 3 7/8 inches x 5 1/8 inches.

Using the Memory Box Sideshow Tickets I die cut once from Black card stock and Floral Designer Paper.  Adhered with Scotch ATG Adhesive.

I added  Fun Foam to the back of my panel using Scor Tape.  This creates a nice 'channel' for my smaller Memory Box Sideshow Tickets which is cut in White card stock, layered with a Red Memory Box Row Of Poppies cropped die cut.  Ribbon added for the pull tab.

Sentiment panel Folk Filigree and Happy Spring stamp sets, by Gina K Designs.
Raven Black ink.
Spellbinders Standard Classic, Heart, and Scallop Circles die cuts.
Red and White Gingham Ribbon.
Black Ribbon Tab.
Foam Dots.

A hidden surprise inside.

A little bit of dimension.

Classic Black and White with a POP of Red."

Thanks for sharing your talent with us Donna! You have inspired me to do something interactive and fun!  Now it's YOUR turn! Stop by our CURRENT LINK PARTY and show off any project that includes a product or two from companies Cropstop carries in the store!

This is a grand card with the black and white and a pop of red when you pull out the ticket. It is not only fun, but also very pleasing to the eye. Nice job!
