Its Uncle Bob's Birthday

And this is my card that I made for him.  Hope it made it there safely.  If you follow me on twitter you may have noticed that I was playing with this die the other day.  I finished it last night and mailed it!  

Not bad I might say for my 1st pop up.  My cake sorta "fell" when I smushed the card to close it.  I think I had too many card stock layers.  I did manage to stuff it in an envelope and mail it but it was a bit thick.  BUT SOOOOOO MUCH FUN!!!

I am playing with some other designs- should be fun to see them.  

Some of my thoughts on the die:  Positives:  very easy to use.  very easy and relatively quick to assemble.  major wow effect, major creative options.  

Negatives- Keep in mind this was my 1st card ....it did not close all the way but my cake was designed in a lot of thick card stock.  it was hard to stand it up for the picture.   my cake looked really good, even after closing the card,  but the inside layers on the cake were a little low.  other than that I really liked it.  

verdict- FUN!!! I will for sure make More to perfect it!

Stamps:  Voila, on your birthday

Club Card Spoiler!!!

DON'T FORGET : Send MOM some flowers for Mothers day!

This was a try a new technique over on SplitCoastStampers.  BE WARNED  these are addicting!!!  I used embosslits but the possibilities are endless ....stamped images, punches, the pretties kit, etc etc   TIP:  Make sure you measure the complete length of your insert to be 5-1/2 tall.  if you place the flowers to high it will not fit in the envelope.  all of my flowers are sponged in rose red ink and adhered with dimensionals.  

I changed the dimensions slightly to fit in the envelope better.
