CCEE1613 Eiffel Tower Day

Bonjour, It is Challenge day with a French theme on CCEE Stampers Blog today.

According to the Days of the Year web site today is Eiffel Tower Day. So for our challenge this week let's celebrate all things Parisian …. It could be the Eiffel Tower, French Poodle; Berets; Champagne; Red, White & Blue Color Combo etc.

I am thinking of my daughter who is currently living in the England and is planing a holiday to Paris, it is hard when they are so far away and you miss them so much.

I friend recently showed me an idea when you have the most glorious designer paper but it is a bit thin to create a pivot card. Just fold the paper in half and using double sided tape the same width as the paper just stick the two halves together before die cutting.

I have used the Katie Pivot die for this card but you could use any pivot die for the same effect.
The Eiffel Tower on the front had been foam mounted and painted with the wink of Stella clear glitter pen. I also added the wink of Stella glitter to the images in the pivot panels.
