My November Secret Sister Swap to Gail

Hello Peeps. Hope you're all enjoying your long weekend and crafting, crafting, and crafting.

When I found out that I was Gail's secret sister for November, I must admit that I felt quite intimidated because she sent me such an awesome swap as we partners for the October C.A.T.S. (Card and Tag Swap).

Well, the November swap for the Secret Sister Swap calls for "thanks." Hey, this was actually PERFECT because I got to create this card for her to thank her for the cool swap she sent me. It's the first time I used my new Scallop 3-D Pop Up die by Sizzix.

I'll start by sharing the inside of the card. I'm still hooked on my Fair Princess stamp set by TGF so I "had to" add these cuties to the garden scene.

Here's a close-up of the top half.

And the bottom half.

Here's the front of the card. Sorry, it's not a very good pix and I had already mailed it so I couldn't take another.

I having a blast with the swaps. If you'd like to join in the fun, click here for deets on C.A.T.S. (Joy's blog) and here for the Secret Sister Swap (Kris' blog).

Other supplies used:

Stripe DP by Stampin' Up; Copics; Ribbon Banner, circle, and large scallop dies by Spellbinder; "I absolutely love it" stamp by Stampin' Up; "Sending Smiles" stamp by Hero Arts; "Thanks" stamp by I think Hero Arts (sorry, it's not noted on the stamp); Grass and butterfly punch by Martha Stewart; Decorative Swirl by Sizzix; Stickles; pearls and rhinestones by Kaiser Craft

As always, thanks for stopping by. HAPPY CRAFTING!!!

Wow, what a very cool pop up card! I think you did a wonderful job on neat how you've popped up your fairy to give the impression of her being suspended in air!
