Happy 10th Birthday!

Wow, I'm running late on Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #31. I made this card with a pop up gift card based on this Hero Arts YouTube video by Jennifer McGuire.

My niece, Gabi, turns 10 next week. In the second photo, I show the inside of the card. You see a Starbucks gift card...that's not her gift. I didn't want to ruin the surprise in case she sees this blog.

I based this layout on p. 4 of the SU 2008 Occasions Mini catalog.

Pop Up Gift Card Ingredients
Stamps: Birthday Whimsy
Paper: Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, Parisian Summer DSP
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, VersaMark
Punches: 3/4" circle, scallop circle, 1 3/8" circle, Fiskars scallop border, Fiskars 2" circle
Other: White embossing powder, Heidi Swapp chipboard, Sakura Gelly Roll, Martha Stewart Circle Cutter, Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain ribbon
