Cinema Saturday Challenge- Dear Frankie

Hello again friends,
I'm back with a card for this week's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge:

I had not heard of this movie before, but the trailer for this movie won me over. If you haven't seen this movie, please take a minute to watch the trailer:

I found the movie, rented it, & watched it with my neighbor. We both really liked this movie!!! I could relate to the mom, Lizzie, in ways I can't get into, but it's such a goooooood movie. Really, it's touching, moving, & oh so well done. In the beginning, I had to really listen closely because of the accent, but after a while my ears adjusted :) I do have some questions though, but that's for another time. (Don't want to spoil anything :)

Anyhoo, here's my card:
If you've seen the movie, you know where my inspiration came from. Frankie collected the stamps his "dad" sent him in a book & he kept track of all the ports his dad had been on a map he kept on the wall. So I recreated his book. I printed some stamps, cut them out & adhered them to his book. I added a little map of Scotland (which is also the background paper under the book.) The book itself has 3 layers that are popped up with foam tape in between.

Thanks for peeking & your homework this weekend is to treat yourself to Dear Frankie :)


  1. Beautiful card Karli. I will have to check out the movie. I'm telling you, I think I'm getting old cause I can never make out what they are saying in movies even without an accent. I always watch with the captions on, LOL!

  2. Great take on the challenge, Karli! You have me ready to see the movie now, too! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Blessings to you!

  3. I love how you make this book with the stamps and map. Great card!

  4. I never heard of this movie either.

    Your card is magnificent. Love how you made the book.

  5. Karli - this is awesome! I LOVE the book and stamp and map combination - how absolutely lovely! I am so glad that you watched this movie and like it too - little Frankie and his mom just touched my heart :) I adore how you put all of these elements into this awesome card!!! Thanks so much for playing along with the CInema Saturday challenge :)!
    Big hugs Karli,
    Sankari :)

  6. Karli,
    So glad you got a chance to play.. I am glad you liked the movie. It's one of my most favorites. I think we all can relate to wanting to protect our children from any harm at all no mater what it is. Jut give them the strength to grow and learn. I love that you made Frankie's little stamps collection.. And great use of the Scottish map. The layering of the book creates a great effect.

    Thanks for joining us this week.

  7. What a pretty card! I'll have to check out the movie, looks like a great chick flick.

    Glitterbee hugs!
