Effet bois / faux wood effect

La carte fermée / The card when it is closed

Sur le forum Cards and Stamps Addicts, il y avait des défis pour le World Card Making Day. Je n'ai pas participé aux challenges le jour J, mais cela m'a donné des idées... Il y avait notamment deux challenges qui m'ont marqué: réaliser une carte avec un effet bois (tutoriel ici) et réaliser une carte avec tag coulissant (tutoriel ici). J'ai combiné les deux idées pour donner la carte que je vous présente aujourd'hui. Les fleurs sont de Wild Orchid Crafts, les papillons sont des découpes avec un die Stampin'Up, le mannequin est simplement découpé aux ciseaux.

La carte ouverte / The same card when it is open

I am a member of the Cards And Stamps Addicts forum (which is a French speaking forum despite its name). On the World Card Making Day, they had a number of challenges going on. I did not have time to participate in the challenges on the correct day, but some of the ideas were worth giving it a try. So I decided to combine two of their ideas in this card: the faux wood effect (there is a tutorial here) and a sliding tag card (tutorial here). Sorry, the tutorials are in French, but I assume you can understand a lot just from the images. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the butterflies are cut with a Stampin'Up die and the dressmaker's form is just cut with scissors.
I'd like to submit this card in the Flutterby Wednesday challenge (anything goes as long as there are butterflies or winged fairies), in the Shopping Our Stash challenge (flowers in 3D) and in the Joanna Sheen challenge (silhouettes).
