Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #40 - National Treasure (1 or 2)


Hi Everyone, 

Today marks the 40th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge - where every week, we pick a movie and then create a card/layout etc. based on some inspiration from the movie. This week's movie pick is National Treasure starring Nicolas Cage (you can either one or two for the challenge). And the challenge requirement this week is to create something with the theme of treasure - it can be anything really from something or about someone that you treasure - to maybe even some real treasure - how ever you interpret it! 


For my card this week - I made an anniversary card for one of our friends (Julie if you are reading this - just act surprised tonight :) lol! I used Julee's fantabulous Mojo Monday Sketch # 94 this week and used kinda neutral colors. I wanted to create a treasure box of sorts - but it ended up being more like an accordian folder(  I loved seeing Norine's purse box and Adela's Accordian creations  and so used their pieces as inspiration for a little accordian action on my card :) that opens up to reveal two scrolls (like the Declaration of Independence from National Treasure 1) that have the messages: "treasure each day" and "treasure each other" on it. Which is something that I personally want to focus on - as I feel these days going by so fast! Here is the front view of the card: 



and then you open it up:


above are the two scrolls that are tied up in some embroidery string and when they are opened up show the messages:   "treasure each day" and "treasure each other" on it.


Here is a side view of the card - you can see the accordian fold better at this angle:


Card Details:

Paper: Paper Company and handmade textured paper and from scraps
Stamps: from Verve; Grateful Elegance and the sentiment is from Verve as well
Accessories: Circle punches, Martha star punc, copper ink to sponge, platinum stickles, EK sucess border punch, embroidery thread

I can't wait to give this to our friends - they are truly such a special couple and their love story is just the cutest and fairytale romance ever! And they are just as giggley and in love as the first day!

Well - I hope you have a chance to check out the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! Can't wait to see your treasured project!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Sunshiney smiles,
Sankari :)
