All the world's a stage: Mini theatre scene

First things first: Happy Birthday sib!

It's my sister's birthday today [or it's your birthday today ... if you're my sister] and today's project is the card I made for her / you. But then if it is you, you'll have already seen it as I gave you it last night.

OK! Enough of the time travel confusion .. or maybe not quite enough. You'll see ...

Anyway, here's the card:
But this is not just 'a card', no ... it's an interactive stage-set card complete with a fully functioning David Tennant ... [the latter of which I know for a fact was on her birthday wish list!]

As she recently went to see him perform in Much Ado About Nothing I used some appropriate wording cut from the vintage book [above] which I'm thinning out before I start to use it as an altered book/ journal.

If you'd like the full details on how I made this - it's my Design Team project here on the 3DJean blog today . But basically it's an Artchix chipboard 'Scalloped Stage' decorated with vintage wallpaper, shiny things and doodling - with stamped wording and characters glued to lolly sticks!

I hope she / you liked it!

Love you big sis. x

And if that's whetted your Shakespearean whistle and you fancy a bit more of the Bard then you might like the 'Culture, Literature & Shakespeare' themed pack of Plundered Pages I added to my shop last week:

End of shameless shop-plug.


I'm off to a crafting weekend with friends tomorrow morning .. so if I don't see you before ... I'll see you next week.

  1. I'm sure your sister was thrilled. David Tennant was filming in the building where I work recently but sadly I wasn't there so wasn't one of the lucky ones who bumped into him in the lift or car park.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Gorgeous details on this card!!

  3. A really fun card, I love stuff like this, it's so different, a one-of-a-kind piece that she can treasure.
