Hi everyone, this card style is very popular right now and it’s referred to as a Theatre Stage card, Stage Set Card or a Slide & Reveal card!
I had been seeing these popping up across social media and wanted to give it a go, I had actually seen it a couple months prior on the Pop Up Channel on YouTube but I was waiting for the right stamps, papers etc to use with it.
As soon as I got my hands on the Circus collection I knew it would work perfectly with this style card.
The Showman on the front has the perfect pose to reveal the fun inside the card!
Those who are regular to my channel know I love 5 x 7 & 6 x 6 size cards so I had a look and worked out the sizes to turn this card style into a 5 x 7 size.
They all fold flat and will fit into a box envelope or one of my ‘Bouncy’ envelopes.
There is loads of room on the back to stamp and write your message too!
Everything is coloured using my Arteza Expert coloured pencils and I made the bunting using my 1″ cirlce punch and cut them in half.
