Pull-Up Gummi Bear Birthday Card

 For this card I wanted to use both the Sizzix birthday stamp set and the Avery Elle gummi bear stamp set on a pre-made Hot Off the Press pull-up card that I purchased from HM Ben Franklin Crafts. I like the time that I saved by not having to make the card base.  It was easy to apply a birthday print paper to the front of the card (I hand cut the the wavy flap.) and then use foam dots to adhere the stamped birthday images.
 Velcro dots were applied to the corners of the flap to keep the card closed until the surprise reveal of the yummy gummi bears.
 These gummi  bears were colored with Copic pens (for an intense color) instead of colored pencils because the bleed through on the backs of the bears does not show.  A bow was glued on the top of the inside to cover the back of the candle image. The banner was cut with a Paper Smooches die and stamped with the gummi bear sentiment.
Oh, I forgot to show the Bo Bunny pearlescent pink paint that I used to 'frost' the cupcakes...love the texture with the Queen and Co. foam balls added on top.  I am happy with the finished card because the front is unassuming and the recipient will get a sweet surprise when the gummi bears pop up.  I love interactive cards! Thanks for visiting this blog site.  Leave a comment if you have time to spare.  I truly enjoy reading them.
