Oh Happy Gorjuss Day!

First of all, I need to wish my dear friend Karen a happy belated birthday! I'm soooooo late in sending her something that I'm a little embarassed!  Karen- don't look at the date I bought your present! 

Because I'm so late, I decided I need to spend some extra time and care in making her card.  Since I'm still on my Gorjuss Girl kick, I decided to incorporate one into the card.  I've been crazy on YouTube checking out old and new Gorjuss Girl videos and found one by Creative Kelly from Cali that showcases an oldie but goodie interactive card.  I think it's called the surprise pop up card by Beate Johns.  Check out her tutorial here.

So I altered the measurements from the original tutorial to mimic Kelly's card to the larger size of 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".  Here's what I came up with...

The papers used are from the Bo Bunny Primrose line.  Again.. trying to use up stuff that I already bought and since I haven't touched this set yet, that was next on my to use list.  The roses are from either Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts, I am Roses or downtown LA.  Also used crochet trim I picked up at my LSS and some prima bling.  This Gorjuss Girl is from the older collection since those stamps are smaller than the new releases.  This stamp actually had a pigeon next to her, but I cut it out since it didn't really match the card.  Here's a closer look at her.

And a closer look at the sentiment and flowers.  The sentiment is from a new Lawn Fawn set called Oh Happy Day.  Forgot to mention that I also added a bunch of flat back pearls.

The fun part about this card is that you can pull the tag in the back and make the card pop up!  It will then reveal the message to the recipient.  I also hid a gift certificate in this compartment.

The sentiment is from a new Paper Smooches set I just got.  Yay!  At least I'm using a lot of my new stuff!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are not bored with all the Gorjuss Girls yet!
