Hi all,

Friday at last...hooray! 

At our team training events, there is always a raffle which is well and truly overstocked with amazing prizes!  There were 82 of us at the September event so even though I purchased tickets I did wonder how good a chance of winning I had but hey it's the taking part that counts isn't it!  I was however one of the lucky winners and when it came to choosing from the table of prizes it was so hard to choose!  I decided to choose something that wasn't on my wish list and something a bit different from my usual style. 

I chose the Pop on By Stamp Set and Pop Up House Thinlits Bundle.  Pop-up dies aren't usually my go-to products as they can often be quite fiddly but boy did this one not disappoint!  Team training was over two weeks ago and I finally got to play this week!

The stamps are a great size for using on card fronts, and are lovely to colour in with your choice of colouring tool.  For this card, I used a selection of Stampin' Blends Markers.  I have added some extra dimension with the background stamping onto the card base and some trees that I have created with the leaves stamps and cut out.  The window box image coordinates with one of the dies in the set which is handy!

The star of the show is the popup element inside the card.  This is something that is definitely not expected and it's a lovely way to surprise your recipient!  There is a slight giveaway though...the card doesn't actually fold flat ha!

I have cut out several different elements of the house in different coloured cardstock, and added some more detail with the curtains and the flower box. I have added another tree (to hide a glue smudge that I didn't want to show!), and the door even opens too!

The bunting has been stamped onto Whisper White and cut out (there is a die for this however I don't own it!) and is a great addition I think!  Who doesn't love bunting?!!

I really enjoyed making this card, and it definitely won't be the last time that I use this.  I won't lie, this card did take me a while to put together as I took time to cut extra layers out.  Some things are worth the extra effort though!
