closed card

opened telescope card
I had to make an anniversary card for a 50th wedding anniversary. what a milestone. so I came up with this. I used my new Martha Stewart paper and a new technique called a telescope card. one picture shows the closed card and one shows it opened. inside there is a verse. I also got to use my peel offs that I haven't used in ages. the round one just seemed to go perfect on this circle. The 50 and best wishes were stamped and embossed with gold. I also put some pop dots in the layers that don't move to give it some dimension and when the telescope part is closed it looks like a cake. I added a bit of bling on the top layer, and my embellishments are a heart and key, ribbon and heart brads.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges   - using a technique you haven't used in a while  - using 3 or more embellishments   - glitter and bling
