Pop-up Birthday

Simple, suitable for man or woman, this cute birthday card has a pop-up surprise inside. 

I just love the new Deco Labels Collection Framelits and I made the most of them in this card.  The paper is a non SU paper, a Brown Sugar-type color with a Blushing Bride-type polka dot. I mounted that on Blushing Bride mat and repeated the Blushing Bride-brown layer theme in the various sizes of the framelits. The top sentiment is stamped on Whisper White. it looked a little too plain, so I added a piece of  Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon behind it, then popped up the focal image with Dimensionals.



When you open the card, there is a large birthday cake that actually stands up, out and away from the back of the card, with the use of a piece of card stock that was scored and folded over to make a square. The cake (made with my Cricut Expression) is attached to the square, which is also attached to the back of the card.

Then I duplicated the Deco Collection Framelits theme with the inside sentiment.

Thanks for looking,
Carole
