I was looking at this photo this morning when I was going thru pictures of cards I had made. I was looking for some inspiration to make something new this weekend. I would love to re-create this but it is very time intensive--I think this took several weeks to make. It is a 3-dimensional merry-go-round card that I made when my boss's first grandchild was born. It was fun to make and I love the way it came out. The picture definitely does not do it justice. It was done from a template but everything was stamped and painted by hand. People have asked me how much I would charge to make another one and I have never come up with an answer. Any one have any ideas? What would you pay for this? It was about 7 inches high and made up of 5 panels that pop out when you open the card. It was a lot of hard work but also a lot of fun, and well worth the effort. Maybe I will try "deconstructing" it this weekend and making a card with just one or two panels. I will post whatever it is I come up with when it is finished.
By the way, the blue piece hanging off the side is a tag with the baby's name, birth date and birth weight on it. It's kind of hard to tell what it is from the picture.
