Paris Themed Pivot Card

Good morning friends

Today's card was made months ago. Initially I made it as a second card for a Designer Challenge by Karen Burniston (Charmed) ... then I didn't end up posting it.

The paper is a lovely teal metallic, but no way I could capture it in a photo. It looks great in real life though!



As I do quite often, I cut the outer card wider than I desired, then folded over the pattern to the inside. This not only stabilizes the Pivot Card, but brings the pattern and colour inside the card as well.


I hung an Eiffel Tower charm on either side, and added little flourishes above each pivot shape.


The Paris edges and the Beach edges were used along the bottom of the card, cut from black card stock.


Finally, here is a view of the card from the top. The design on the front and back pivot to the inside as the card is opened.



Note, you can find my cards from July 2011 - December 2016 on Alteredscrapbooking.blogspot.ca .  I had a bunch of cards made ahead, which are already water marked with alteredscrapbooking and I'm choosing not to re-do all those photos with a Painted Mountain Cards watermark.
