Gloria's 50th Birthday - Pop-up Box Card

My friend Gloria had her 50th birthday last Tuesday however, we all went out to tea with her on Saturday night at a lovely Palm Cove restaurant.  Gloria asked for no present but asked/demanded :-) that everyone crafty or not make her a card.  Easy I think.  However, there was a P.S. on the message for me - I was not to use my Cuttlebug or a stamp.  Now that is a challenge and a half as I use my Cuttlebug at least once for every card Dies or Embossing.  So I thought it was time to make another  Pop up Box card as I had so much fun with the cat version (here).  I started with some Bazzill card stock white and green and teamed it with the SU patterned paper.   My daughter had discovered a packet of rub-ons after cleaning out her room so I put them to use on the front of the card also adding some stickers and bling.

The inside of the Pop up Box I attached layered paper and fabric flowers to acetate and added two butterflies.  Finished with the Happy Birthday stickers.  I so love that all these fold down so neatly to fit in an envelope.  Such a great style of card.  This time I used the tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.

Hope you all have a fantastic week and thanks for visiting.
