Pop Up Box for a 50th





I've been asked to make a card for a friend of ours by his Mum (also a friend of ours ) , it is for his 50th Birthday . He is music mad and loves a pint of real ale , so I guess this card ticks the boxes
We are all going to surprise him tomorrow in a restaurant , for a meal and drinks .
I cut the pop up box card using a tattered lace die , so much easier than all that measuring . The music related elements are stamped from a set with creative stamping magazine issue 31 .I cut them out, using a spellbinders circle die for the records  and coloured them with promarkers . The man with the pint is a clear stamp I have had in my stash for years , I'm sorry I can not find the make. The musical notes are a punch and the lace musical score I bought at a stamp fair . I've added a few black peel offs .
It's a very personal card and making it was a labour of love , I hope Mum and Son like it and our friend has a wonderful 50th .

This is just class Jane! So beautifully decorated, perfect for him by the sounds of it. I have one of these to make tomorrow but alas no die but I do have a template I made as I thought the die would be too small for the size of cards I make. Wish me luck lol.
