JAI 154 Just add a pop up card

Hello there,
well coughing at home (Mr 5 and I) has regressed to drippy nose - thankfully not for me - yet! So it just as well that we have a fun challenge over at Just Add Ink this week. It is to Just Add a Pop up Card. Sounds like fun!! My starting point was to go over to the Splitcoaster's tutorial section and have a browse. I came across a tutorial for a pedestal pop up card. I was intrigued and put it to work for a birthday card. Here's the front - no hint of what is going to happen when you open it up. He he :0
This is what you find :)
Here's another angle so you can see how the monkey is up in the pop up tree - fun eh!! I hope it brought a smile to the birthday boys face!
I loved the combo of old and new in this, and how easy it is to make some cute trees and how those trees just come to life if you add a cheeky monkey!! When it comes down to it, pop up cards are just plain fun - so if you have a chance join in this week :) Do check the rest of the DT's super popping samples!
