We have two November birthdays on our family, Avery Neal will be 3 years old and Emma Rose will be eight! Avery is really into Doc McStuffins and Emma is fascinated with the Equestria Girls! So my task was cut out for me...

I knew I wanted to do the Magic Window Cards for both girls. Trying to get the logistics of how the card could work with their faces in the characters was tricky for me. But here's what I ended up with...

November 4th for Avery Neal:

I followed the Magic Window card pattern. After cutting the window I inserted an image of the Doc from the web, separating the head and gluing it on the white paper inside the window. The body I colored and glued to the inside of the plastic overlay so it would match up with head of Doc McStuffins when the card was closed and...

Avery's face which was on the white inset connected under the plastic sheet by the ribbon, when the card was opened.  Crazy right? The next picture shows what the card looks like when extended on both sections. The line on the picture is actually the plastic when it is pulled all the way up. 

Because the image was bigger than the original Magic Window card insert, this insert is longer, 2.75" x 4" which made it fit perfectly! Avery was over the moon with excitement about the card! Almost as much fun as her present... almost! The cupcakes are from SU's Create a Cupcake stamp set and punch. The frosting is on vellum and a little bling star is on each of the three candles. Again I used the alphabet die from SU and the number die from Avery Elle's Count on It for the sentiments, along with PTI's Bigger Bloom's "Best. Day. Ever."

The card is closed at the bottom with three purple flower brads. Because this is a card that doesn't open, we wrote our message for Avery on the back. My next post will be Emma Rose's Equestria Girls!
