Celebrate! - SNSDC71

It's time for another Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge and this week's challenge is to make a card that has some type of pop-up element.  Since this goes in my "fancy folds" category, I was excited about this one.  I used this Pop-up Gift Card Holder tutorial from SCS.  SCS is one of my go-to resources for clear, easy-to-understand tutorials.

I colored Fluff with Copics and used a glitter pen on the frill at the top of his hat.  I used this week's CPS Sketch #282 for the design for the front of the card.  To allow for the tie to keep the card closed I moved the circles in the sketch a bit to the left.

I used a scrap of drawing paper to make the envelope to hold the gift card. I used a 1" circle punch to create the cut-out to make it easy to remove the gift card from the envelope.  Next time, I'll either decorate the envelope.  After assembling the card, I added the "Happy Birthday" panel with a few pop-dots.  I will definitely be using this tutorial again.  It's so easy to do!!!

Cardstock: Recollections, Bazzill, Georgia Pacific

Patterned Paper: MME (Good Day Sunshine)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digi (Celebrate, Masculine Birthday Greetings)
Embellishments/Tools: Strathmore Drawing Paper, jute twine (JoAnn's), American Crafts Slick Writer (black), Sakura Gelly Roll (clear star pen), Spellbinders (Standard Circles Large & Small, Labels Four and Labels Four Small), Copics, Eyelets (Oriental Trading), Marvy 1" Circle Punch

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

I hope you'll give pop-up cards a try.  There are many different types -- I've tried several and I think this one may be my favorite.   Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll come back soon.
