Combining this card with Heart2Heart Challenge - Fun Folds.

My Granddaughter's bedroom has the theme of Paris and she loves everything Paris, so naturally what card would I choose to make.  And to go along with the card, I decorated a Eiffel Tower Jewelry Holder and enclosed the top of the Tower to hide a money here to to see the Tower.  

INSIDE:  Cricut Design Center, CTMH Artfully Sent Cartridge had a Eiffel Tower Pop-Up Card, which I sized to a 5x7 card, cut from White Daisy cardstock and modified to have the two ladies cut on page instead of a separate die-cut.  I cut another card with the design paper from La Vie En Rose, cut out the tower, glued to the white cardstock, adhered the white card onto a black card base and finished with stamping some flairs and sentiment.  

FRONT:  The background paper was a design paper (peachy pink and gold) from a new CTMH Paperpak "Happy Times".  However, her new favorite color is peach...but I'm sure she will be pleased with her card.  The Flowers were stamped with VersaMark, heat embossed with Gold, fussy-cut, liquid glass added to the centers and adhered to background paper with 3D Thin Foam Tape   

The same ladies that were cut in the inside of the card were used for the front of the card using a shiny black and gold special paper, layered with same die -cut for shadow, lined them up as a Paris Fashion Show walkway and adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape. Ribbon and bow added to panel and then placed on the front of the black cardstock.

Your granddaughter is one very blessed girl. Beautiful card! I love Paris and hope that one day Izzy will get to visit.

What a beautiful card - the outside is so misleading as to what is to be found inside (the outside is gorgeous... but doesn't give a hint as to the 3-D nature of the interior...) Such a nice surprise when the card is opened. She will adore this as a fan of Paris!
