Beany Malone Pop Up Card

I'm a big fan of the Beany Malone and Belford series books by Lenora Mattingly Weber. I made pop up cards to give to my fellow Weber-ites at our recent gathering in Washington D.C.

The White House and background came from an election card designed by Carol Barton. I used Photoshop to combine Beany's face and the suited girl from a Simplicity pattern envelope.

As always, I'm blown away. Where did you get the front card image?

It's in a desk calendar from the National Gallery of Art.

Blown away is always a very good description of what I see what I visit. Fantastic stuff.

This is really cool, Carol! Lovely clean lines! I love the way you've used the dress pattern image... I'm starting to realise that I can't throw ANYTHING away, despite trying to train myself to do just that for the last 20 years! Adore the popup. Great stuff!

I got dozens of patterns from my mother-in-law. Guess she thought she might use them again one day :)

I gave most of the patterns away, keeping only one box of the oldest and most interesting.

I love your card and the DC theme. Maybe you could sell themed cards in shadow boxes as works of art! They are beautiful and creative.
