Make It For a Child at FSC

The theme this fortnight over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is 'Make it for a Child'  and for my DT piece I have made a Pop-Up card.

In this months Craft Stamper magazine there was an article on pop-up cards, so I thought I would have a try.  I have used 2 House Mouse 'cake' images and cut out an extra couple of little meeces to make a 'party'.  The card base was very easy to make and fits nicely into the outer card. I didn't want to have a fussy background to detract from the images, so I just sponged Tumbled Glass DI onto the cardstock.
The banner is computer generated and each letter cut by hand before attaching to the cord. The sentiment on the front card is a CB Die cut.

As usual there is fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT, so please pop over and have a look.  We would love to see your creations, but just remember, we are a stamping challenge, so there should be at least one stamped image.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
  House Mouse & Friends -  Make Wishes come True
  Crafty Boots - Glorious Food
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Outlines - Make it Square
  Tuesday Throwdown - Winter Blues
  My time to Craft - Bring on the Cake
  Truly Scrumptious - All Creatures Great & Small
  Hotshot crafts - One for the Boys
  Allsorts - Anything Goes
  Crafty Ribbons - Paws for thoughts
  Papercrafting  Journey - Make it Cute

Thats it for now, hope to see you at FSC this fornight.
