Bathtime bubbles Theatre - Tunnel card

Today I'm posting my fun theatre-tunnel card with the Enjoy the bubbles pop-out scene dies and stamps. I adapted a Theatre card tutorial by Sam Calcott using the front of the stage and pull out wings adding lace drapes for a more intimate boudoir atmosphere. I completely changed the back of the card adding a tunnel effect.

The back of the card actually has 3 layers - to give the idea of peeking through the curtains and into the room. I stamped and die cut this 3 times and snipped away to leave what I needed. Each layer was made 1/2" wider than the card. It was scored and folded at 1/4" on each side and the tab stuck to the sides with red-liner tape which made a 1/4" gap between the layers. As you stick the inside layers, gently make sure that the card will fold flat. 

(1) The outside layer has the bubbles only that are cut into the white card and layered with blue. The bubbles were then stamped, coloured with tri-blends, and die cut before layering with foam pads formore dimension.

(2) the middle layer has the bubbles and the bath with the lady snipped away. The bath has been die-cut from centura metallic card to give a coppery look and more bubbles and the duck added

(3) the last layer was everything including the lady 

(4)Finally,  the sentiment was edged with Parakeet ink and adhered to the inside back of the card.
