Pop Up Birthday Card

Karen Burniston has designed the cutest pop up birthday card die and I knew my Grand kids would love it.
They love anything that pops up (me too).  
This is the front of the card.  I kept it simple on the front so that the inside would get all the attention.

This is the inside of the card.  Karen has a great video on YouTube show how to do it.  You can watch it by clicking HERE!  If you click on the card image, you will get a better picture of it.

A Masculine Card

This has been a very fun card to make and I keep thinking of new ideas for this style of card that I will be trying.

I saw this idea on Pinterest by Kathleen Wingerson.  She has a great video too that you can see by clicking here.

One thing that I did differently, was to stamp the sentiment before attaching the front panel to the card. My friends Darlene Pavlick and Diane Hover spent the day with me crafting on Saturday and Darlene made that suggestion which I thought was excellent.  Because, if you mess up you don't have to remake the card. (ask me how I know)

The clear panel on the front side allows you to see inside which makes for such a pretty different card.

By the way, my friend Jean has been released from the hospital in St. Louis and is now in rehab.
I talked with her yesterday and she sounds so good.  Thank you for your prayers and I sure give God the glory for bringing her through this illness.  She spent 39 days in the hospital.  Praise God for her recovery.

Let me know if you try this card, and what ideas you have for it.  Also, send me a link when you post it to your blog.

Have a fantastic week.  I am having a "camp" day for my 17 Grand and Great Grandchildren on August 26th. I am planning a big day for them with crafts, games, flannel graph bible stories, singing and of course food.  If you have any ideas to suggest for games let me know.  Their ages are from 4 to 15.  I think I have the crafts in mind, but always looking for any good ideas you might have.  My goal is to make lasting memories for them.
