Pop Up Happy Birthday

Hi Everybody,

This card looks intricate to make but I promise you that it is not.  I even have a video that was made a long time ago showing you the basic steps to take and then you can dress it up any way you wish.
 The Easy Stepper card needs no measuring either so I hope you will give this a try. 
This is a more up to date look to my card and I really like this one
For this card I have used cream for the base and then Labels Eight to cut the filigree panel in gold glitter paper from  Craft Stash

The  Happy Birthday Pop Up  is a little die that cuts out the words and then all I have done is glue along the edges and added to one of the steps. There are other ways that you can use the die but this just suited my purpose completely

My floral arrangement is as always from Wild orchid Crafts   and into the display I have added a lovely Hatpin. The lace  and the bead flower along the bottom are also from WOC

This is a card that looks so much better in the hand

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  19. Hi, Christina,
    This card really only needs one word...WOW!!!
    It's so 'you', with wonderful decorations and made with love. What I wouldn't give to find a card like this coming through my letterbox on my birthday (sadly my sister doesn't craft so I'm not holding my breath lol).
