Magical Marquee Card

Hello bloggers! Thank you for visiting my blog, and a special welcome to those of you who have recently closed to follow my blog or subscribe to my YouTube channel.  I am always delighted when someone signs up!

Today's project uses the Guy Greetings stamp set and Maritime DSP. I can see the Bristol Channel from my living room window - Swansea is a seaport.   I grew up in the South Wales valleys, so living by the seaside is a great blessing for me. My husband is a local boy and his father was a Shipping Agent.  He has fond childhood memories of accompanying his father onto ships  - so anything nautical gets his vote.  And I think he's just the best, so the "World's Greatest Husband" sentiment just had to be done!

As you may know, I have a great love for kinetic cards and this card has a surprise inside.  

Remove the belly band and - 
Two flaps slide aside to reveal the stamped image.

Here's the tutorial - 

Measurements - 

Night of Navy card - 10" by 5", score on the long side at 2.5" and 7.5"
Sliders - 3" by 2, score at 0.5" (if you don't have the Banners framelits you will need to cut a triangle out of the sliders - cut in to  a point about half an inch from the unsecured side and adjust if you need to.)
Real Red card - 3" by 5"
DSP  for front - 4.75" square, cut in half

Rosette - 1.5" by 12", score at .25" intervals
Belly band - 2"by 10"

Thank you for visiting and I do hope you enjoyed the project.  See you soon!
