50th Anniversary Pop-Up Card!

Happy Sunday!!!!!!!!!!  Well, last night was my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary party  - so now - I get to show the card I made for them! I decided to do a pop up card and followed Darlene's instructions on her post (LOVE HER!)

It all started very elegant on the outside.  I used my Memory Box flower die and embossed the background with a PTI impression plate. Added a gold button to the center of the flower and used my Stamping Bella sentiment on a nesties die.

Then it went a bit a whimsical:
I wanted the red paper to represent the 'red carpet' this royal couple was standing on :)

I used the coordinating Stamping Bella stamp colored with my prisma pencils.  I added a Lawn Fawn banner and alphabet and then a There She Goes Ribbon die - embossed in gold.

Here's the side shot of the pop-up:

And a close up:
 I used gold acrylic accents for their crowns and stickles for their 'diamonds'.  I had a lot of fun making this card!

But picture taking was quite a task.  I took pictures of the card on three separate days trying to get my 'best shots'.  One day - this is what I had to compete with:

Buddy would not get off so I could take the pictures! LOL

Hope you have a great Sunday!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Love how you have your flower on the front popped up... you must have just popped it up in the middle.... How did you keep the petals from drooping?
And then the inside looks so Fun and Cute, I bet they just LOVED it!!!
Now Buddy is the best yet... he was getting a look from a whole different angle!
