Happy birthday pop-out...

My brother-in-law's birthday was the end of May, and we were actually able to celebrate with him this year. Here is the card I made for him:

I grabbed some cardstock from my stash, along with some bits and pieces that I thought I could use to embellish the front of my card.

My sentiment was computer generated, and I inked around my die-cut (Darice) to give it a little definition. The stars were cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die set. They're kind of wonky, but I like them like that.

For the inside of my card, I used a Silhouette cut file (#49563) for my "Happy Birthday" pop-out.

I guess I have a "thing" for pop-out cards. I think it's always a nice surprise when there is this extra element on the inside of a card. I love that the Silhouette Design Store offers so many different possibilities for pop-outs.

 As you can see in this picture, it doesn't pop out very far, but it still gives a nice affect to the card.

Summer has definitely arrived in my area, and I am enjoying the warmer weather and the way my flowers are blooming like mad. I just need to make sure they get enough to drink!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Very nice card for your BIL. I like the color combo. I haven't tried the pop out features yet.. It is always fun to find a little surprise inside.

What a fabulously clever design Cheryl! Great colour combo too! Sorry I have been MIA for so long, but have been away and then when we got back we had to deal with a lot! Have a great week and I hope to catch up a bit soon! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx

Nice pop out card and yes I like the fact that it doesn't add too much bulk to the card.

Great card Cheryl, LOVE your pop out centre.
Glad to hear summer has arrived with you! I think I booked the wrong week off work - it's been cloudy and showery all week but the forecast for next week is much brighter and sunnier. Maybe I'll just pull a sickie ;)
