I have been dying to share this card, but I have been so busy I just have not had the chance! A couple of weeks ago, a good friend of ours turned 40. By day he is a fireman but in his spare time, he is a magician. He is always thrilling our kids with his magic tricks and balloon characters. He is very fun to be around! And, he is always a great admirer of my card creations, so I wanted to make him something he would remember, and with some help from my clever friend Phil, I came up with this magic hat:But the real surprise is inside. I popped the letters of the word 'forty' inside on acetate. I remembered this technique a while back from a card on Liams blog, and it was so simple to do!Here is a close op of the pop up:
And my magician friend seemed to love his card, so that was great! Ciao for now!
