Another birthday in my family. January and October seem to be the popular months for me. Today is my sister's birthday. So a very Happy Day wished to you Lyn. :-)
I have had an urge to try out pop up cards for a while and wanted something a little different to send to my sister. So what better time to try a pop up card. I found a wonderful tutorial at Qbees Quest blog.......there are so many more fun looking tutorials there too. I shall be returning to that blog.
I even cased the front of Qbess card as I liked the whole idea. So I have used a panel of embossed green card that I received in a swap over at Craftmad so don't know the name of the embossing folder. Then used a variety of Stampin Up Design Papers. Next I used my green ribbons that Santa was so clever giving me in my stocking this year....he has such taste. ;-) The tag I cut out myself and added the gold rub on sentiment.
Here is the fun pop up in the centre of the card. Again I have used Stampin up papers and cardstock. Its hard to see in the photo but I coloured the candles with my Copic and then created swirls down the candle with my Colourless Blender.
Challenges: This is my Design Team creation for the current Unstampabelles challenge - #7 Anything Goes. Such amazing fun over at Unstampabelles this month we currently have 92 terrific entries. Wonderful paper creations and not a stamp in sight. Oh, and the other excitement we reached 100 followers on the weekend and a surprise prize was given to the lucky 100th follower Cheryl.
You have until the 3rd February to join in all the fun.
I would like to enter this card into the Make It Monday Challenge #73 - Always Anything Goes.
My first time entering this weekly challenge this year. Michelle and the Design Team always have such wonderful creations to share. I always love visiting the many entries they have too as there is such a variety of creations shared.
