Masculine Marquee

Todays card is another interactive one from Ellen Hutson's Hownow School.

A fun little masculine gate fold card that opens like this

to this

and reveals a hidden stamped image. I just love the cards that Julie taught us to make in this class!

I'm entering this at A Blog Named Hero's Dust Em Off Challenge.

My least used stamp in the project is the birthday cake. I've used the sentiments from the stamp set is belongs to but I don't think I've ever used the cake stamp, if I have it was eons ago.

I'm also entering this for the Simon Says Father's Day/Special Male Challenge. I never seem to make as many cards for the guys as for the gals, why is that?

Wishing you an inky day!
