For the LOVE of PAPER!!!

What are little boys made of?

I have to say that I love the way that this card turned out!  It's a tri-fold card with the 'What are Little Boys Made of' theme.   The first panel is the Snail from B is for Boy cartridge.   The snail is cut at 4" and then the brown layers of the shell, I used glossy accents to make them stand out.
The paper is from My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side and I trimmed the corners and the left vertical border with Fiskar's Pinking Shears.  The vellum sentiments were cut from a Colorbok collection.   I added the frog stamp from Fiskar's Creepy Crawly set and the colored metal adhesives from Heidi Grace.

The second panel also features paper from the My Mind's Eye, On the Bright Side collection and the dog is cut from B is for Boy at 4".   I used the pinking shears on the horizontal border but then I hand cut the chevron paper into three sections.   The vellum sentiment is mounted onto the same paper from the front , as well as the dog's hat.   I added a touch of Christmas Red Stickles to the 'helicopter' on his hat and some glossy accents to his nose.

The inside features more cuts with the shears and the rest of the vellum sentiment adhered to a piece of the chevron paper from panel #2 and the zig zag corners cut from panel #1.
