It measures just 3 3/4 inches square, and when you open it up, there's a surprise pop -up inside -
Here it is in action -
I thought hard about how to get the balloons in just the right place without needing to score the card first (which would show up once the stamping was done) and I hope you'll find my solution useful. You can download the instructions here.
My YouTube video shows how I made it...and thereby hangs a tale, because you just wouldn't believe how many takes that video needed - some of it was down to me (like when I put my hand into the Early Espresso ink and then casually brushed against the all-but-finished card) and some of it was due to technical difficulties - like the anti-flicker software on the webcam turning off for no apparent reason. By the time I finished it I was in a right old state, I can tell you!
A couple of things I didn't cover in the video - the background stamp on the front of the card is from one of the Sale-A-Bration sets (Best Day Ever) which co-ordinates with the Best Year Ever papers. And after I was down, I thought the inside looked a bit bare, so I added some strips of the Best Day Ever paper.
Anyway, thank you for visiting - hope to see you soon!
