I got a bespoke card order for a lady called Gretel who is Swiss. The request was for a card with a coo-coo clock. After pondering this idea for a while, I decided to use my birdhouse die by Sizzix and turn it into a 3D card.
I printed a coo-coo clock off the Internet and cut out the bits to stick on the die cut house. I also printed just the pendulum and the weights on the inside of the card onto which I stuck the house after having given it an extra fold down the centre.
The house is folded down the centre so that it will collapse when the card is closed. I only stuck the coo-coo and the clock face to half of the house so that it will flatten out when open.
Here you can see how the house flattens inside the card as it closes.
This is another view of the folded house inside the card.
Thanks for the visit
