Tom's Finished Pop up Box Birthday Card

 I was going to add a birthday number....but the card wasn't big enough for that! At last, Tom's card is finished, although, with this type of fold away box card you (meaning me) can go on adding things forever! After a lovely day exploring gardens and houses and having a picnic, we took it over to him along with some birthday money, never know quite what to buy, apart from a house, car, a superzonic racing bike, some rock climbing shorts or anything StarWars. 

The Card.  This one with fit into a six and a half square envelope, as I went over a bit, but you can make them any size and shape.  There's loads of "how to make"  on YouTube. Sam Calcott has this one  and here's one that's very easy and this one and many more. I've added toppers to all my panels, but that's up to you.

Most of the sporting stamps I used came from Creative Stamping magagazine, #92 (Jan 2021) The peeping cat above came from  Crafter's Companion...

 and this other cat is from their 'Smitten as a Kitten', Penny Slider Cards set.(Love them both!) Oh and the mice! Lawn Fawn of course!

Both the  letter die cuts used here and the bearly seen ones in the front were from either The Range, Trago Mills, or Hobby Craft.  (sorry about my gluey thumb!) I coloured everything with my ProMarkers. Any 'Ink overs' I used Vintage Photo, Distress Ink. Anything else was scraps from by stash. The tiny racing bike is from a freebie set, Bike Riding Set by Chantahlia Design...there's tons of freebies over there, go look see!

And, last picture... I made the back look like a door  and added a key hole. That tiny little bow on the cat came from a hangbag set of dies I picked up at the Charity Craft Shop in Lymington for 50p, I also got the matching shoes! Might make another Pop Up Box card  using handbags and shoes!
 Hoping to add this to some Challenges later ...I've just recieved some ATC's I wasn't expecting! How Fab is that... all nine of mine have gone off... so, I'd better get crackin' and make some more!! Thank you for stopping by!
