Pop Up Birthday Wishes

Front View

Inside View

Used My Craft Studio Encyclopedia and printed off template using 120gsm for the inside. with a scalpol I carefully cut around the sentiment then coloured in with shop bought marker pens, when dry I applied glitter paint.
Centura pearl pink cardstock was used for the main card, cut to size and scored then used a corner punch on all four corners. Embossed two heart shapes using Crafters Companion board and cut out, put the largest through a heart embossing folder to give effect,these then were coloured in added fine glitter around the edges off the hearts to make them stand out.
Attached ribbon with finger tape and used a strip down the middle and dipped it all into fine glitter. The balloons were attached using silicone glue then the hearts were attached on the top with silicone glue to hide the sharp wire for safety. Added peel off stars and sentiments to bling it all up,
Used wet glue for the popout on the inside making it easier to attach and then added peel off strips to hide the workings off the popout. I hope my Grandaughter likes it.
