Marvelous Marquee: Holiday Hoopla #4

Well you are in for a treat today.  This is another card that I did for last Saturday's Holiday Hoopla event.  Yes, for those of you that know her -- it is Jan Tink's Marvelous Marquee pattern!!  I wish that I could have just cased her card because I loved it so much more, but I had to stick with the Cold & Cuddly stamp set for my presentation.  And this is what I came up with:

This is what it looks like when it is closed.

This is what it looks like with the "marquee" curtains are open (e.g., card is open).

Now you know why it is called the "Marvelous Marquee" card!!  Everybody just loved opening it up to see the curtains open to reveal the little love penquin.  I had a little trouble understanding the directions, but once it was done, it seemed very simple.  Here are the supplies I used:

Stamps:  Cold & Cuddly, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and Serene Snowflakes.
Paper:  Real Red, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Christmas Cocoa Speciality Designer Paper.
Ink:  Soft Suede, Real Red.
Accessories:  Punches, Linen Thread, Snowflake Bigz Die, Markers.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!


  1. Sandi, way cool. I think you have been holding out on us. You are so talented.

  2. Really nice Sandi, I seen Jan's demo on this type of card and you did it justice. I really like the Christmas look to it.

  3. This is so professional looking. You did a great job, Sandi. Is there a template available for this style? TFS

    p.s. It will be very hard to give away the quilt!!

  4. OK, this is the BEST project I've sen using that snowflake! You know, I hate using it. Nothing i try looks good. But this project is FABULOUS and certainly case-able! Which I will do, by the way! LOL!

  5. Sandi, what a great collection of projects! Now I really have to give Jan's marquis card a go. As much as I love this stamp set, I have found it challenging to design with, fabulous job!
