HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAMARA!!!!! SIMPLY BETTY BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAMARA!

I hope you have a great day, and I was so stoked to be a part of this hop!

The image drawn for us was made by Betty of Simply Betty Stamps, and i think you will agree, utterly awesome!

I made a completely new style of card for this one, I felt like having a play, as I don't often get to do exactly what I want to do!



I also have to admit, I had my new toy to play with (my Scan 'N' Cut) so the digi and cupcakes were cut out using the direct cut feature, the wording, hearts and donuts were  all cut files !
I loved the papers I used as well (A5) diggety dog, but my husband knocked a drink over whilst I was doing this and none survived :( luckily the box was done and on higher ground at this point!!

I coloured the birthday girl using my promarkers and I found the pop up box card tutorial online (I have to admit, I tried a different tutorial and the result ended up in the bin!!)

I placed the digi on a strip of acetate so it wobbled, everything else was stuck to the hidden framework within the pop up box- in the last picture you can see that it folds almost flat for postage!

so all that I can say is happy birthday Tamara, hope you have an awesome day and are spoilt rotten , and we all love you :D
